Hi! I’m Hugo (they/them).
I’m a self taught barber working for the past 3 years in London, mostly at a small barbershop in Barbican. I’m very passionate about cutting hair and I’m comfortable working with all hair textures.
At Open Barbers I will start by offering crisp fades, razor work, precision cutting, alternative styles, beard shaping and creative requests. I like merging different styles, combining old fashioned and modern together. I hope later to expand into longer hair styling services but for now, I’ll be working on shorter hairstyles.
I can be quiet or chatty while working, and I love the challenge of delivering exactly what my clients want, to the best of my ability. I continue learning every day and I enjoy stepping out of my comfort zone. I encourage you to be fussy on my appointments, bring photos for inspiration if you’d like and let’s chat about your hair needs in detail!
I first imagined myself working with hair and enjoying it several years ago, soon after receiving a cut that wasn’t right for me, based on assumptions made about me/my gender by the stylist (sadly a common experience for the trans community). I’m so proud and excited to be working with, and for my own community now, continuously questioning social conventions existing around hair.
