Two Marylebone barbers have made it to the shortlist of a nationwide competition to be crowned the best wet shaving barber in Great Britain.
Dan Gregory, 30 and Joe Easton, 22, both based at Man Made in George Street, will face razor sharp competition from fellow craftsmen near and far in their quest to win the prestigious competition.
Dan and Joe are set to face-off against other top barbers in the London regional final in March. If they’re successful enough to secure a top spot in the regional heat, Dan and Joe will face the most crucial shave of their life at the national final, which will take place inside a boxing ring at Barber UK at the Birmingham NEC on May 21, 2017.
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.”
Joe is a fresher face to the industry, adding: “I fell in love with the art of barbering. Especially shaving, the process of shaving is therapeutic not only for our clients, but for us barbers too!”
Now in its fourth year, the annual competition, run by premium male grooming brand The Bluebeards Revenge and industry watchdogs the British Barbers’ Association, is fast becoming the competition of the barbering industry.
