This weeks guest Dan Gregory is one of the most sought after barbers and grooming experts in the industry today. Named as ”One of London’s Best Gentlemen’s Hairdressers” by ES Magazine, winner of London’s Best Wet Shaver and has an impressive list of loyal clients ranging from City Executives to Hollywood stars, Dan brings his wealth of knowledge to share with you today on how you can bring high-end services and prices to your men’s hair & grooming menu, no matter where you’re based.

Dan’s lifelong experiences in the male and grooming industry are a valuable lesson to us all today. It starts with him sharing his early time working at a barbershop in his hometown of Liverpool, and leads us through to owning and selling his Man Made barber business in Marleybone, London, to focus on being a freelance men’s hair & grooming expert based at the Hunter Collective, London. Sprinkled in between this episode we also hear about his Global Grooming Ambassador role for Braun, the barber explosion, barbering versus men’s hairdressing – and for good measures too, men’s facial hair trends!

Whether you’re looking to niching down to become a freelance expert within the industry, or you’re in the game of men’s hair & grooming, but struggling to charge the prices your expertise deserves, then I know you’re going to be influenced and inspired on all that Dan shares with you.

There’s so much in this episode, so take a listen and hear more about becoming a high-end barber & grooming expert.
