About us

Why we started

Doing something different.

At Watson's Barber's we make every effort to deliver the haircut you want by providing a thorough consultation. Even if you don't have the foggiest idea we'll make suggestions based on your head shape, growth pattern, hair type and how it was cut previously etc. We care passionately about our craft and always put quality first, ensuring you're more than pleased with your look.

As an avid Sky and Netflix fan, Laura can talk horror, true crime and nature as much as you like. Her love of animals spills over to owning a pug called Reginald (aka Reggi)
Music-wise, Laura has an eclectic taste including classical, emo, rockabilly, pop punk, jazz, blues.

Marcus Watson

Marcus completed his barbering apprenticeship with us, taking to the craft with natural talent and flair. Currently, Marcus is studying for his NVQ 3 in barbering and is due to graduate in the next few weeks. Marcus has a great passion for music and is a self-taught pianist, playing classical style pieces. He also plays drums and guitar and writes rap.
Outside of music, Marcus likes gym, boxing and playing football.

What we use

Better products, easier styles.

We use Uppercut products in the shop because we believe they provide the best control and finish for the styles we cut. Uppercut has been our brand of choice since opening the business, so we have good experience to advise on choosing the best one for your hair type, style and finish. As authorised stockists, Uppercut products are available for purchase in our shop.
