Meet our Master Barber Luke Baker who heads up our Modern Grooming area. He has an excellent reputation for both creative hairdressing and men’s grooming and is especially skilled at hair styling, cutting, colouring, cut throat shaves and beard shaping. Luke achieves fantastic shapes that are current and easy to manage.
As a highly creative person, Luke likes to push the boundaries with his open-minded and alternative guests, expressing his artistry. He says: “I have always been in to Art & Design (it’s what I studied at college) and I’ve transferred my artistic skills into hairdressing. It gives me the freedom to be creative.”
