Skullfades Barber Shopby Ged King
This barber shop has become a worldwide social media darling based on its selfless work for the community in Sales, England. Led by Ged King, Skullfades barbers use their abundant talent to offer free haircuts to homeless and unemployed individuals. This shop is even establishing the Skullfades Foundation to offer free training in barbering to those less fortunate.
With over 18 years of experience between them, brothers Alan and Reece Beak have established a shop as impressive as the style they are famous for. As the duo has branched out to presentations and webinars, as well as a second shop location in Lytham, they further set themselves apart as some of the finest trendsetters in England.

The Mardy Barber
Ask any barber, and they’ll tell you how hard it is to make it as a barber. Even harder is managing your own shop. Yet when the shop where Ben Popple, Ben Jameson and George Wish completed their apprenticeship closed, these three young barbers decided to open their own shop at that location. Not only have they been successful at retaining the clients of the former establishment, their hard work and talent are attracting growing numbers of new clients as well.
