 Mr B's History....



    "Mr B's Barber Shop" 

    opened for business in Bell Street in 1996. Having trained & worked in Romsey

    for 12 years, my business got off to a flying start & in the 6 years I was in Bell Street, my business grew  

    continually but satisfying the demand became more & more of  a problem as efforts to find enough staff,  

    of the quality I desired, proved fruitless.      


    With 4.15 am starts & ever increasing rents I decided to close the Barber Shop in May of 2002, downsize

    to smaller but brighter premises & work solely to a more controllable appointment system.


    "Mr B's Gents' & Boys' Hairdressing Salon" 

    opened in Tee Court, just off of Bell Street, in June of 2002  & after the 2 years of searching for staff for

    the Barber's shop,  within 2 weeks of opening the smaller business I was then approached by 6 quality

    people looking for work!  In September of 2002 I was joined by Jon Heath,  who I worked with for 12  

    years, until Jon moved onto pastures new in Southampton. Garth Phelps, whom I trained with and

    worked with for 12 years from 1984 to 1996, then joined me at Mr B's.


    Steve Biddlecombe's Hairdressing History -  


    I trained under  the terrific guidance of John Light here in Romsey, encouraged into competition work

    from a young age, I learned fast & am proud to say attracted a loyal customer base quickly. Competing

    at all ends of the country, I gained 15 national competition awards & then became a National Judge

    for 5 years,  judging the work of my peer's & that of upcoming youngsters. Now with a Master Craftsman            

    Diploma, I rarely find the time to compete but do visit competitions occasionally to keep an eye on

    current trends.


    Garth Phelps' Hairdressing History  -  


    Garth also trained under the terrific guidance of John Light at "Finesse Of Romsey" & we worked          

    together there for some 12 years before I opened Mr B's. We have cut each other's hair for 30 years now    

    & Garth has a very loyal client base, having also worked in Romsey all his adult life.


In Business Since 1996.
