HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A BARBER FOR?
I have been a barber for 15 years from the day I started in my dads barbershop. I have worked in several shops across the globe, but have most recently set up The Bearded Man on Chapel Street. Come check it out.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT BEING A BARBER?
The people! All day I get to chat to what becomes a bunch of friends and make them look good and influence an individual sense of style (could it get much better?).
WHAT’S THE FUNNIEST STORY YOU HAVE FROM YOUR DAYS WORKING AS A BARBER?
I have funny stories everyday but one of the best ones was when a barber from Canada was cutting hair in his shop when all of a sudden a grizzly bear walked in. Lucky they had a back door and lucky no one was getting a shave, it wouldn’t of ended up too good haha.
TO SHAVE, OR NOT TO SHAVE?
I don’t think its a matter of shaving or not shaving. Everyone has a look whether it be a beard, moustache or clean shaven, but one thing people should do is experiment as everyone is different.
DO YOU HAVE ANY HAIR OR BEARD CARE ADVICE/TIPS FOR MEN NEW TO GROOMING?
I would say if you have long hair be careful not to let your beard get too crazy as you will look a bit rough and it’s all about the balance. I personally believe there is nothing better than having a well groomed beard, so make sure to have a trim and take care of it with some beard care products. We stock beard oil because we believe it’s a great overall product to keep the beard healthy and growing optimally, and beard balm to add some style.
