The barber’s trade has a long and varied history and dates way back when to the Bronze Age in Egypt. Priests and men of medicine are the earliest recorded examples of barbers and the word barber actually derives from the Latin Barba, or ‘’beard’’? Ok so fun facts out of the way for now, let’s get down to the passion and some of the people involved in bringing barbering techniques to the masses.
Let it never be said that the city of Leeds doesn’t have style, substance and panache. Our little corner of the North offers a variety of bespoke boutiques and beauty connoisseurs to tousle your tresses, care for your cuticles and fill you in on the latest must have grooming tips du jour.
