As some of you will be aware, I, (Andy) have been working with The Great British Barber Bash since September 2017, educating to the colleges of the UK and showcasing to audiences of people at all levels in the industry.

Most recently I was very proud to be invited to Edinburgh College to take part in a showcase with an audience of around 50 hairdressers and barbers from the local areas of Edinburgh. I appeared on stage with, and worked alongside, British Master Barber of the year 2017, Tom Baxter, plus another upcoming talent Ollie Foster. Having the opportunity to work alongside people like this is an honour and an inspiration. Not to mention the fact many of these people who I look up to I am now lucky enough to call friends.

Education in this industry is something I am really passionate about. I was lucky enough to learn my skills from one of the industries best (Alan Beak of Ruger) and it is with great pride I carry on that torch and share my skills, techniques and experience with others.

I also want to thank Garry from the Great British Barber Bash team for believing in me and allowing me these opportunities.
