Why Should You Win?

In the year since we opened we have grown from nothing into a busy shop with a loyal customer base. We aim to give the best service and we put everything into every cut we do. Online booking has been a great success that not many places offer and on top we have customer parking, refreshments and take card payments. We are open 6 days a week, until 18:30 on week nights to give customers as much chance as possible to get a haircut in the busy world we live in. We believe what we do is different to every other shoo around and to win the award would mean everything to us.


Hips and snips

I own a barbers shop, located just out side of York city centre. One of my customers asked me to nominate my business.

Why Should You Win?

You may wonder why? All I do is cut peoples hair, BUT my job is much much more than that. One of my clients joked the other day "a hair cut & councelling for under £10" People open up to me, I like to make my shop a space where everyone is welcomed and accepted. Anything is said in confidence, will go no further, will not be judged & only of an opinion is asked for will it be given. When you see people every few weeks, being outside of their circle, in a safe environment, it is almost natural to open up. My job is a connection with people on all levels. It teaches me so much about people in general, the mind, different situations. I try to pass on good energy and a positive outlook, my clients recognise this, when they leave, they leave happy.... not just in their hair cut, In their soul. Only then is my job truly done!

Why Should You Win?

My name is Mark Hagues you've probably never heard of me after reading this you will never forget me. I started my career at the age of fourteen working on a Saturday at a ladies salon in Bootham York. after 4 months I applied to Toni & Guy for an apprenticeship during my time i did two competitions and started a passion for my trade. In June 2000 I started working at Sax which was the exact time the Fly collection came out and was witness to the Sax Artistic Team debut this collection. A year passed and I was taken aside and offered to work along side the Sax artistic team but felt I was not ready at the age of sixteen. I started to gain interest in cutting techniques in particular precision cutting and was offered an apprenticeship in Traditional Barbering, with experience gained coupled with my thirst to provide the best, I have successfully built Mark John Barbering business within fifteen months and I am pleased to say now has two branches. My reputation is built on quality and excellent customer service, which i feel is what this business is all about.
