How would you describe your shop’s vibe?

Very laid back. When building the shop I felt I wanted to offer something different to the other barbershops in the area. We have a unique style, not wanting to follow any of the crowds. I feel our staff, cuts and atmosphere really embody that ethos.

What’s your most popular cut at the moment?

Skin fades are definitely the most popular across the board, obviously word has got around that we’re pretty good at them!

Tell us something we don’t know about Uppercut Deluxe products?

I know so much but don’t want to give away any secrets, so I’ll leave it at that.

What’s your favourite style to cut?

I personally love old school slick backs and side partings, but there’s sometimes nothing quite as therapeutic as a head shave, it’s like popping bubble wrap to me!

What’s the best tip for someone visiting your area?

A walk around the harbourside, stopping in at Pickle for a sandwich before heading out to explore Ashton Court. Then coming back in and hitting up The Lanes for beers and bowling and finishing up in ‘Redlight’ for a cocktail, if you can find it that is!

What is your favourite shop?

On Point, they have a shop in Street and one in Cheddar. Had the pleasure of working with them a few years ago and they’re lovely lads down there.
