News from the dandy gent...

...and Rory makes four

Local barber, Rory Howe, has joined The Dandy Gent's Nuns Street team, to provide more of Derby's discerning gents (and gentesses!) with the finest styles available.

Rory lives close to Nuns Street, and always looked in as he walked past the shop - in October he popped in and introduced himself to Shane and Shaun - and was quickly hired. 

Rory is fully qualified, with over 5 years experience, and loves to create the perfect look every time - skin fades and beard styling his speciality. More.

Ash arrives at Irongate

A warm welcome to Ash who started work with us in May. We're happy to see that word of his talents has spread like wildfire - he's already got a strong following and frequently fully booked along with the rest of the team! (Booking always advisable at The Dandy Gent!!)

Ash has been a barber for over 13 years in Derby and served his apprenticeship with our man Mike - back in the day. He loves barbering, as we all do, and keeps up to date with the latest equipment and techniques, he's an excellent all-rounder and does a stunning job on afro-caribbean hair too.
