Dan - Barber

From Classic gents cuts to skin fades Dan produces some great work. Although very accurate his cuts are generally quicker than other team members as he focuses on barbering rather that men’s hairdressing. He is a razor cutter too so anyone wanting a more refined sculptured barber cut would really like his work as often just using scissors can leave the hair feeling to bulky. Dan uses all the latest Wahl equipment and is certified to use the Donald Scott razors. He was also trained as a barber by Ross Charles himself and has a very keen eye for detail. Dan has worked back stage at Pro Hair live for the show work that Ross Charles produces. His prices start from £15 for a basic barber cut and works generally on a walk-in basis.
