Our Team

Manager

Work life gives me structure to my week-I enjoy being part of a team, that feeling of having a work family. I find it very satisfying talking and listening to clients whilst performing a haircut/ beard trim. My job is so rewarding when you know you have client satisfaction. I enjoy having returning loyal clients. The day I stop learning is the day I lose interest, I love my job.

During my spare time, as much as I love my job, I also love my days off. Interaction with my family and friends is very important to me, spending time with my partner Rick, my home, I have a passion for organisation and cleaning I find very therapeutic. It will come as no great surprise when I mention exercise, I run many miles a week with my dog Piggy and we love the off road. It’s great to feel fresh air on your face. Running is a big part of my life and Piggy my chocolate Labrador is too.

Barber

I’ve worked in the hair industry for many years which I have always enjoyed. I started when I left school working as a Saturday girl. I loved listening to clients conversations & making them feel glamorous. 

I am a mum of 4 grown up children and I have 4 grandchildren who I adore. I love spending time with them, whether it’s playing football in the garden, bowling, cinema or walking the dogs.

 I like swimming, gardening, decorating, watching live bands, woodland walks and eating out with family & friends.

Hi I’m Hayley, I’ve been in the industry since I left school. What I love about my job is working with so many different people, hearing about everyone’s lives. I just love listening to people. Cutting hair has always been a passion of mine, I love seeing how a new haircut can completely change not just the appearance of somoene but how they feel. In my spare time I enjoy family time. I have two children that keep me busy, we love going for long walks and just being outside, in the summer we love to camp and if we’re lucky we go to a festival. I also love reading and watching a good box set.

Barber

I’ve been working in the hair industry since I left school as hair has always been something I have wanted to do. 

I worked for Blades previously but left 2 years ago to go into childcare. I have come back as I missed the team environment and the joy I have for cutting hair whilst speaking to different people throughout the day. 

When I’m not working I have 2 daughters to keep me busy by going on days out with our friends and family making memories.

Hi I’m  Zoe, My passion for hair started at the age of 13 with a Saturday job sweeping floors. I love the whole team atmosphere and friendly environment, meeting people and listening.

I am a very friendly down-to-earth person who loves a good conversation and a laugh.

Most of my working life I have spent at Blades Barbers and this is my 20th year of working for this company.

I have three gorgeous boys and a lovely partner. Family time is so important to me alongside running, walking, spending time at the gym and swimming, generally keeping my body and soul healthy

Apprentice Barber

Hi, I’m Ella and what I love about working in the hair industry is the different faces you meet every day, the different challenges and listening to people’s interests and getting to know them.

I always knew I wanted to do barbering since I left school at 15. The atmosphere is so friendly and I love how a haircut you do not only changes the way someone appears but also how it can make them feel about themselves. I love to make someone’s day a whole lot better!

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my daughter. We go to sensory classes, soft play & we find other activities to do. I also like spending time with my partner and going on days out with our daughter. I also like to exercise and go on long walks.
