With just over 30 years in the barbering industry, and working within the UK, Ireland and the EU, Charles, our founder decided that it was time to bring all of that experience under the one roof.
He realised that over 80% of his day was spent rectifying issues that his clients had relating to their hair, beards and skin - and recognised that he had a niche that very few could fill.
Being a barber is more than just learning how to fade, blend or do various styles of cuts. Most barbers in the field do just that, with little or no experience on the theoretical side of our craft.
To be a great barber you must understand the head
shape, bone structure, face shape and hair type and how to bring them all together to provide a tailored finish for each individual client that graces your chair each day.
Anything else is unprofessional.
Everything else is substandard.
Little else is acceptable.

Charles returned from Zürich after he had an epiphany that most of his day and working hours were spent rectifying the mistakes or shortcomings of other barbers and stylists.
What he found was that most of the complications or issues that he found himself dealing with on a daily basis were pretty much related, regardless of the client. He found that a lot of the problems being expressed to him by his guests were as a result of poor consultation between the stylist and the client, a widespread lack of understanding of the consultation process and the inherent psychology behind how we make our styling decisions.
