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.
For those wondering what happened to our 60th Aniversary celebrations, it turns out that we should have had them a year ago! We were informed that there has been a Barber Shop on the premises for 61 years so we are now in our 62nd year! Balloons out in 3 years and counting. Plenty more mens...
69 Old Christchurch Road has been a Barber Shop for 59 years!!!
Ain't that something? Yes it is.
Choosing not to celebrate the 58th or 59th years, and deciding not to hold out for the 61st year, we have selected "OUR 60th YEAR" to make a small fuss over.
So next year is the biggy,...
Ten percent of the time, from our salon we can see the King of Birds, the PEREGRINE FALCON. Free borrow of binoculars and point in the right direction with every mens haircut. Is this a WORLD'S FIRST for a barber shop? Daft question, of course it is!!!
To celebrate half a dozen Mister M's haircuts gaining promotion to The Championship, for just a few weeks, we will be displaying our best AFC Bournemouth football memorabilia in the salon. WELL DONE LADS!!!
