“I always wanted my own shop but the timing was never right. I’m the only person that has cut my brother Pete’s hair for years and with his lifestyle, that always kept me in work and I got to do lots of fashion and magazine types of work.

“Now the time is right for me and Ipswich is just perfect. The location of the shop, the size of the shop. It’s just want I wanted. I was looking for a really long time before I found this place and it’s just exactly right.
