While cutting, styling and pampering, we will take a trip down memory lane through music and chat. Please feel free to bring along your own music too!
"A barber is a person whose occupation is mainly to cut, dress, groom, style and shave men’s hair"
My name is Louise and I am the barber behind the scissors. I have started this new business venture on the back of 20 years healthcare experience. I relocated to England with my family due to my partners work commitments, in doing this I gave up my job as a deputy manager of a residential care home in Belfast. Having spent a year as a stay at home mum I wanted to get back to full time employment but felt ready for a fresh challenge, however I was keen to ensure that my 20 years’ experience in healthcare wasn’t wasted and would in some way be incorporated in my future plans. Working within the ever changing care home environment a person centred approach to therapy lead activities is a key element to good and continuing care, however it has been noted that the Gent is much more difficult to cater for and that the words man and pamper don’t often go together……..until now!
With 20 years care experience also comes care related qualifications, I have a level 3 diploma in health and social care, alongside first aid, protection of vulnerable adults, infection control, manual handling, COSHH & RIDDOR, Basic Food hygiene, Fire safety. My experience includes working with adults with learning difficulties, mental health and dementia within a residential care home environment. I have completed a barbering diploma and a diploma in traditional wet shaves.
Here at memory lane barber I intend to bring a new experience to the care home, creating an old school barber shop within the care home. I hope to achieve this by transforming a room for the day by introducing barber shop signage, a barber’s pole, and a retro record player. The services I will provide will include of course, short back and sides and any other kind of cut requested by the client. I will be providing wet shaves using a badger brush and cream, this will take the client back to their roots. I can provide a cut throat razor cut on special request. I hope to create a relaxing environment whilst taking a trip down memory lane through music and chat. In my kit bag included in the price of a shave some good old favourites….. Old Spice, Brut, Brylcreem and many more.
