The Northern Barber Company: Quality barbering – and a French bulldog – in Preston
The barbershop revolution has taken hold of the UK over the last decade.
Where there were once hair stylists and salons with nothing aimed exclusively at men you now barely move for the red and white poles, flashy clippers and Jack Daniels water sprayers.
With a trend comes copy cats and the barber boom has seen a lot of copy cats.
But some stand out and for Lancashire, the ones that stand out are Preston’s Northern Barber Company.
Either side of me are 28-year-old Dan Kean and 34-year-old Rob Robinson. Partners in crime, barbers, hair stylists, the owners and brains behind the beast that is Northern Barber Company. There’s also a black French Bulldog called Fran who sits tentatively in Rob’s lap, he tells me that she’s the real boss.
