What’s your most popular cut at the moment?
Most popular cut at the moment would still have to be the skin fade side part with a low pompadour. This classic style with a modern twist has really made a comeback in the last couple of years.

What’s your favourite Uppercut Deluxe products?
My favourite product at the moment would have to be the Easy Hold. It so versatile and it has really filled a gap in the styling range.

Who is your favourite artist to spin in the shop? We go from playing 1950’s Blues and Soul to Heavy Metal to 90’s hiphop with a lot of Aussie punk music thrown in between so its really had to say! At the moment we have been loving Gang Of Youths latest album so I guess I would have to say them.

What’s your favourite style to cut?
I really like cutting in a nice textured crop with a skin fade from someone who really has the hair for it.

What’s the best tip for someone visiting your area?
Best tip would be to go grab some fresh fish and chips from Hallam’s, sit up on top of the flood wall and watch the sun go down over the Tamar River. 

What the best advice for your client before walking in?
My advice would be to just have some sort of idea what you want before coming in an take our advice on board if that style needs to be modified. Not everyone has the locks to pull off the Brad Pitt in “Fury”

Why did you get into Barbering?
I got into barbering because I loved the idea of getting to chat to different people all day while still having a creative outlet. See more from The Kingsway Barberhop here.
