I passionately believe in great quality hair, and I am never satisfied until this has been achieved. Ever since I was a boy, I have believed in this philosophy, and this is what has pushed me all of my life. I have worked in one of the best hair salons for well over five years, and I am now the owner of hair-studioh, as well as a Barber educator at Academy num 5 in Fareham.
I am also the Solent entrepreneurial winner of Young Start-Up Talent, with a 50k start-up prize fund.
All of this is a product of my hard work, passion and dedication. As a teenager, I was always told I had brilliant hair, and when I enrolled in my first hairdressing class at school, not only was I a natural at cutting hair, but I had an instinctively excellent sense of style, which leads me to be at the top of the class. At this time, I also discovered my passion for communicating with people, and I began to love to talk with people whilst I worked with them, and this truly leads me to care about them. It is so nice to know so many different people, and that is one of the reasons that I love my job. Not only do we know each other, but I feel a strong sense of connection with each of my regulars, and because of that, they feel so comfortable with me, that they will often just allow me to do what I think is best, and when I know the person, I really know what to do to make their personalities shine. It really is a fantastic and satisfying thing for me to do, and I absolutely adore that part of my work. Of course, I will always go with what they think is best, but I really like that my customers and I have that connection. For me, it isn’t just about a haircut, it’s about making someone shine, and the feeling that I get when I achieve this is truly remarkable, and it’s a thing that my customers and I often share.
I have been had many different experiences, volunteering in on the other side of the world, and I have organised lots of different events. I know what makes something great. I have worked extremely hard to get to where I am, and I still have a lot in my sights, but I have realised that doing what I do makes me genuinely happy, and I couldn’t imagine anything else.

With over 25 years experience in barbering, I’ve worked in London, Barcelona, Sydney and around Hampshire. My specialities are tight skin fades all finished off with a straight razor and beards….sculpting it into shape so that it looks its best and you don’t look like a hobo, all finished off with a hot towel and straight razor. I also love doing flat tops, it’s a dying art.

Ever since Harry went into HTC to teach the new generation hairdressers about this adventure and coincidentally mey Jack on a detention, explaining what his lifes like and the trade of being a scissor wielder he sure enough changed his option to join the Army and wanted to learn these skills of barbering.
once Harry had found this out in 2017 he sure enough offered an opportunity to get Jack to be part of the team.
now 2 years on Jack is in the chair cutting heads driving Peds.
He is currently on his apprenticeship program with Academy @number5 in Fareham.
we hope yo see Jack fully qualified and running a busy column, keeping all his clients looking fresh and feeling good!
