Frequenting our shop recently, we have had the pleasure of BIC Performers, Radio DJs, Television Presenters, Authors, Red Arrows Pilots, the Bournemouth Evening Echo and even a BBC Television Crew.
We have also had the great pleasure of including no less than seven AFC Bournemouth players as regulars, not to mention all of our clients great and small.
The business was formed with the merging of Antonio Barber Shop and Mister D's Gentlemen's Hairdressers several years ago. Located in the heart of Bournemouth, the premises have been a Barber Shop since the 1950s and maintained a high reputation throughout. We are more of a traditional shop as opposed to the skin fade shops popping up everywhere. The salon is also a Gallery of signed photographs and memorabilia following a Great British theme. This includes The Beatles Barber Chair.
Appointments aren't usually necessary as we normally have three barbers operating, but are handy if you are working within a tight time frame for your mens haircut, for example a lunch break. If you do find yourself with a short wait before your haircut, the waiting area is comfortable with it's TV, the best up to date magazines, cold water dispenser, air conditioning and even a first floor view for people watching. Being keen guitarists ourselves, there is always a guitar or two around. We have a fantastic clientele of businessmen, University students, language students, and local office and shop workers and we are members of the Bournemouth Chamber of Trade & Commerce.
Keeping with tradition, we have yet again achieved our goal of being the last business in Old Christchurch Rd to put up our Red 'n' Black decorations. It's a December thing. We would like to wish all of our customers a Merry Christmas and all of the very best of everything for the New Year.
As we have been here since the 1950's, through the 1960's, 70's, the 80's, 90's, 00's and the rest, there is always interest in the history of the shop. If anybody has come across any images of the outside of the shop from any era, it would be much appreciated if you could send them our way. Thank...
As there has been a lot of AutoSpamming of the online Guestbook by Eastern Block SpamBots, we have had to disable it for the short term. Pesky Reds. Hopefully it will be back up and running soon. As it is 9 years since I ham-fistedly constructed this site, there are 9 years of kind messages from...
We keep getting told that a former Miss World and Miss United Kingdom used to work in our shop many moons ago. It's the same person that keeps telling us, but there may well be something in it. If anybody can shed any light, it would be much appreciated.
For anybody in a position to help, four year old Jacob Buckett is genuinely THE most deserving of causes. Just spreading the word by any means possible could be of great help as his situation is very rapidly becoming more serious. Please click the link below for more information (or copy and paste...
