East end of Glasgow

How did the business get started?

I’ve worked in this industry for 6 years and in that time I’ve had the privilege of working in both high end and small barbers. Over the years my clients have moved away from traditional haircuts to seeking unique styles and advice on products and styling. As a result I began experimenting, learning new techniques and working with exciting barbers.

I wanted to have my own shop so I could be in control of the décor, the music and the way my styles and techniques could develop. So I reached out to Business Gateway Glasgow for support.

What support has the company received? Any other support?

  • Business Adviser Mark Houston has supported the business from the start
  • Business Gateway provided guidance for securing a Prince’s Trust loan
  • Support to find premises for the shop

What is the company's biggest achievement?

Partnership with Glasgow nightclub Sugar Cube that enables us to engage with a wider client base and offer its staff exclusive discounted cuts.

What are the company's plans for the next 3 years?

Every few months we hold a ‘club style day’ in the salon with a DJ playing music and refreshments served to start the weekend in style, we are looking to expand on this next year and continue to offer something different from our competitors. As a new business we are always looking at ways to further develop and grow.
