Offering Exclusive Barbering Services in Your Own Home
I am a highly trained and experienced gentleman’s barber, offering a service that is second-to-none and is unique to me. I strive to go above and beyond to offer the professional service that you deserve.
If you are looking to enjoy an exclusive barbering service in the privacy and comfort of your own home, I offer this and much more bedsides.
My Barbering Journey
I first learned the skills involved in barbering from the tender age of sixteen. After graduating from sweeping the floor, cleaning the equipment and organising hot towels for shaves I was fortunate to receive expert training in barbering which I carry with me today.
In 2016, after a break from the barbering world to pursue other interests I retrained, bringing my skills back up to date. I completed the VTCT NVQ Diploma in Barbering, am registered with and accredited by the "British Master Barbers" and am a State Registered Barber (SRB) with the Barber Council. I am DBS checked and all my documents can be viewed on request.
Since returning to my gentleman’s barbering roots, I have built a dedicated client list for those looking for a high-end service without having to leave their own home.
I take health, safety and hygiene standards very seriously. I’ve been Barbicide certified since 2017 and go above and beyond the expected professional minimum standards. In doing so I ensure that what I offer is the ultimate experience in all ways.
The Benefits of Barbering from Home
There are many benefits to choosing my gentleman’s barbering services from home.
Choose an Appointment Time That Suits You
Rather than having to wait in a queue or fit a hair cut in during lunchtime, my clients can arrange a time that works around them. Offering flexibility to clients is what has helped me build such a loyal client base. I come to you, ensure that there is plenty of time to offer an exclusive service. Appointments are booked in advance to avoid waiting.
Mobile Barbering Makes Social Distancing a Breeze
Social distancing is a part of our lives now. Call it the new normal. Social distancing is much easier to adhere to when choosing my mobile barbering services than it would be in a barbershop. As always, your wellbeing is of the utmost importance. All payments are contactless.
Enjoy an Exclusive and Private Experience
I take my time over my appointments. I don’t want anyone to feel rushed, knowing there are other gentlemen waiting. My 1-1 barbering appointments offer a personalised service, confidentiality, privacy and allow the client to relax and enjoy the experience.
Using the same barber has its benefits as a skilled barber becomes an expert in the individual and often unique features of the client hair/head. This clarity enables you to enjoy a hair care experience that suits your needs. I don’t offer a one-size-fits-all service and never will.
I offer all core barbering services, with traditional, classical and modern styles catered for. Whether you have a mop of curls that need tending to or are looking for a chic look for a special occasion, I am your man. As much as any barber, I like a natter with my clients. That said I also know when to stop talking and to listen. Your hair is part of your identity and you know what you like and what you don’t. I am happy to offer style advice but at the end of the day what you are looking for from the experience is my highest priority.
I offer tutorials on shaving using the hot towel traditional method including using a brush and soap with modern razors. Shaving can be a chore, but if it’s done right it’s an absolute pleasure and becomes a routine that you can enjoy. An effective shave will lift your self-confidence, ensure that you feel pride in your appearance and encourages the feel-good factor.
