Barber and Manager of the Nuns Street branch of The Dandy Gent, Shaun Hoolan, is stepping aside from his full-time role in the shop to set up his latest venture as proprietor of Wild Clothing in Nottingham.
This exciting move for vintage-lover Shaun is something of a dream come true as Wild founder, Robin Pounder, hands over the reins of his 37 year-old vintage and new clothing ‘mecca’ on Monday 24th August.
The move signals the start of a new era for Shaun and the busy Nuns Street barbershop – with an extension to the shop and three new barbers joining the Dandy Gent team.
On 1st September, Lee will join Craig, Callum and Charlie, bringing with him 18 years of barbering experience. In addition to Lee, there are two Junior Barbers working out of the new extension to the shop; Dave and Matt.
The Dandy Gent will introduce Lee, Dave and Matt to clients and supporters soon – and they will all be available to book in the coming days and weeks. In the mean time, everyone at The Dandy Gent wishes Shaun the very best of luck at Wild Clothing.
“Shaun will be missed in the shop.” Says The Dandy Gent Owner and founder, Shane O’Shaughnessy. “But he won’t be far away and we can see some exciting links between Wild and The Dandy Gent going forward. We all wish him the very best and look forward to having him back at the chair soon.”
Shaun will be back at the Dandy Gent chair in the near future, once his new venture is up and settled.
