Tim joined us after Chris spotted his potential whilst training barbers at a college. He completed his training with Chris at our Hadfield shop and has been with us ever since, supporting our opening of the Chapel and Buxton shops. Tim is a highly skilled barber and gives a mean luxury hot towel cut throat shave! He has enjoyed some of the best training available in this country and recently travelled to Menspire in St Albans with Chris for an advanced course on the very latest techniques. Tim has been involved in magazine photoshoots with Chris, helping out both with styling and as a model in front of the camera. Tim was also previously a semi pro kick boxer- Our team can turn their hand to anything!
Lauren is our longest serving team member. She joined us having worked as a hairdresser in a top Manchester salon and Chris trained her in advanced barbering. During her time with us, Lauren has trained with some major heavyweights in the barbering industry including Erik Lander and Gary Machin. Her work really is of top standard. Lauren is mum to a 4 year old and is brilliant with nervous and young customers. Her hair is normally a bright scary colour, but don't be afraid! We owe a lot to Lauren: she has been at our side and supported us in opening all our shops after Hadfield. We couldn't have done it without her!
MEET THE BOSS!
Chris is originally from the North East, and trained as a barber and ladies' hairdresser before going to university, where he continued working in the industry whilst studying.
He has worked on and off as a barber for 25 years, including time spent in prestigious Cheshire barbers' pampering the rich and famous! He did spend some time as a teacher, and has taught barbering at college level.
Chris became one of the first 50 barbers in the country to attain the highest level 4 HABIA award in male grooming, and is a senior registered state barber.
All the barbers in our shops have been trained by Chris.
Chris opened his first shop in 2010, working on his own above a tanning salon.
Chris now runs 4 shops including a ladies' salon and 3 barbers', with his wife Bec. They have a 3 yr old daughter and a new baby joining the team next month. It looks set to be another busy year!
MEET THE TEAM- TARA
If you're a regular on the Buxton social scene, you may well know Tara! She is partial to a night out in Buxton's premier night club....
Tara is a local girl, and joined us 18 months ago, as a trainee in our chapel shop. She made the transition from ladies' hairdresser to barber under the watchful eye of Chris. Tara is very creative, with a love of fashion. Her barbering skills are very advanced and she's shown a great aptitude for creative barbering. You wont be disappointed with a cut from Tara!
Ben has learned his craft from Chris and is a naturally talented barber. He picked up essential skills very quickly and is obsessed with all things barbering.
Along with the rest of the team, Ben has trained with some of the leading barbers in the country- and it shows!
Ben is a family man, married with 2 kids. This shows in his easy going and patient approach.
Other shops keep trying to poach him from us, but we are keeping hold of him!
Ben offers all barbering services including hot towel cut throat shaving, and currently works between 3 of our shops.
