A new barber’s shop offering traditional methods of grooming for men was launched last month in Emneth.
Chris’s Barber Shop and Shave Parlour at 45 Hollycroft Road, is a natural progression in business for proprietor Chris Means, who last year set up a mobile barber’s service.
Said Chris, who lives at Outwell: “It has been given a vintage 1950s style theme. I use old-fashioned techniques to give a modern look. All wet shaving is done in the traditional way using hot towels.” And to be in keeping with the theme, Chris always wears a suit when he is at work.
He completed training with renowned barber, Sid Sottung, at his academy in Nottingham last year.
“I have had positive feedback from customers so far,” he said. He will continue his mobile barber’s service in the evenings and on Sundays. The shop’s opening times are 10am-6pm, Monday to Friday, except Wednesdays when it is closed. On Saturday it is open 9am-4pm. To book an appointment, call 07775409412.
