Our Barber Alex Bandle joined the GREAT hairdressing team in January 2015 where he runs the Male Grooming shop within our Heathfield salon. We asked him some fun questions to find out what makes Alex tick…
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR JOB?
I love the social aspect, talking and getting to know so many different people. It also appeals to my artistic side as each person’s unique personality means tailoring a haircut or experience to them. The challenge this brings keeps every haircut exciting and there is always opportunities to learn new things and push forward.
WHOSE HAIR WOULD YOU LOVE TO GET YOUR HANDS ON?
I’m not sure there is anyone other than Simon Cowell. The man clearly asks for a flat top and clearly does not have the hair to accommodate one. His hair parts naturally and, as he seems determined not to use products, it ends as a very square parting resembling very short curtains.
DO YOU HAVE A PARTICULAR AREA OF EXPERTISE?
I am fully confident in all aspects of barbering both modern and traditional cuts and offer excellent shave experiences, excellent hair cuts and my customer care is second to none. My expertise lies in fading short to long hair.
WHAT ARE YOUR AMBITIONS?
Having franchised the salon with my partner Leanne Potts, we aim to go on to buy. We aim to have a successful, busy salon with a great team. (Not that we don’t already, but there is always room for improvement.) We aim to provide the best hairdressing and barbering/male grooming experiences around and we want to have fun and keep learning!
