The kinda guy who carries a mirror in his pocket and a comb up his sleeve just in case, you’ll never catch this dude with a hair out of place. Needless to say, Matthew has an eye for the details - the type of fella who you might find ironing his T-shirts on a school night. Having spent the last fifteen years leading teams of all sizes, Matthew’s ability to deliver an amazing service and confidently speak to anyone under the sun is second to none. It is our delight as journeymen to lead him through his apprentice experience and pass down the time honoured craft that is barbering.
