Founder of Marylebone’s Man Made barbers, Dan Gregory beat off razor sharp competition from 14 other barbers to be named the best barber in London.
Dan Gregory, 30, is based at the luxurious Man Made on Marylebone’s George Street, picked up the award after winning the regional final, held at Envy Barbers in Covent Garden on March 29.
As well as winning the coveted regional title, Dan will now go on to compete in the national final against seven other top barbers from across the country at this year’s Barber UK. The two-day barber show takes place at the Birmingham NEC on 21st and 22nd May, and promises to be a bigger and better celebration of British barbering than ever before.
Dan has come a long way since his early days in the industry.
He explained: “I fell into barbering after going for a haircut. The barber was looking for a Saturday boy so I applied and the rest is history. To be crowned the best wet shaving barber in London is a huge achievement and something I’m proud to shout about. But I want to go one step further and win the national final. I can’t wait to get into that boxing ring and show off my skills.”
