Local barber and barbering tutor, Lee Stuart-William, has joined The Dandy Gent’s Nuns Street team as he re-boots his career in barbering post-lockdown.
Lee has enjoyed a 16 year-long career in barbering – starting at Vidal Sassoon in Nottingham in his teens. Following his apprenticeship at Sassoon’s, and a short spell in a salon in Chesterfield, Lee moved southward and spent many years working in high-end salons in and around London. Since returning to the Midlands Lee took up residency in another Derby barbershop providing his high level barbering service and training a number of up-and-coming barbers too – including The Dandy Gent’s popular Barber, Callum.
“I’ve always loved barbering – and I’ve really enjoyed passing on my skills to others keen to learn,” said Lee. “But I am ready to take on a new challenge by starting afresh in a new shop. During the lockdown, like many others I imagine, I started to look inwardly and think more about where I was at in life. I decided I would like to work myself into a stronger financial position whilst creating some more free time to enjoy another passion of mine – photography.” He explained.
Lee moved in to Nuns Street in September bringing with him a strong client base accumulated over his many years in the business. “I’m very grateful to have built up a strong following over the years, and look forward to building up many more new clients and friends whilst with The Dandy Gent.” He said.
Lee is initially available Tuesday to Saturday and is a welcome member of the team, offering all of the services on the existing Dandy Gent menu – plus hair wash and style for those who want it. To book an appointment with Lee or any of the team, visit www.thedandygent.nearcut.com
