Established in 2018, Craig’s Barber Shop has a passionate commitment to men’s grooming, ladies' short styles and offers no-nonsense high quality, value-for-money haircuts, styling and shaving for men.
Craig Henderson is a State registered barber, he started his barbering/hairdressing career as an inexperienced 17-year-old working in a unisex hair salon in Bolton center. As one of the only members of staff that wanted to do barbering only to start with then progressed onto hairdressing, Craig could clearly see a gap in the market away from the impersonal experience of traditional barbers and the perming lotions and colourings of the unisex hairdresser.
He could see that men were looking for and (continue to seek today) an enjoyable and relaxing haircut or shave, in a comfortable and friendly, environment, and women didn't want to pay over the odds for a Pixie or Short haircut, with all fanciness attached with it.
In 2018 Craig opened the Barber Shop in Tonge Moor, Bolton, offering men and ladies the efficient yet enjoyable hair cutting, styling, and shaving (for the men) experience they had been searching for.
Craig’s Barber Shop is a family business that is owned and managed by Craig Henderson and his partner Sarah Timmins, Craig has over 15 years of experience as a professional barber/hairdresser.
