Last on the show in Episode 21, Johnny is back today to talk about why two years on since our last conversation he has added an academy to his BarberBarber UK brand of businesses. Creating a six months barber shop training system course, we’ll hear how he initially set this up to help take the stress out of finding staff by recruiting from within. And if you’re after more, then you’ll also be getting some key technical takeaways to cutting mens hair straight into you earbuds from a true master of his craft.
One of the most successful entrepreneurs in his field, Johnny has come a long way since selling his business in Limerick, Ireland after deciding to put everything into his Barber Barber UK business. Five years later, he now has seven stores across the UK and an academy which has seen students travel from as far as the Middle East to learn from him.
Johnny is a strong believer in the safety of technique and achievable excellence, and is building an outstanding reputation for his functional, wearable haircuts and a strong focus on mixing craft and commerce within the barbershop business. He subscribes to the school of thought that simplicity is the hardest thing to learn, but it is by far the most practical approach to barbering. Nothing has to be complicated in order to be correct. Something I totally agree with! Hear if you do, too!
