So who is the man behind THE LONDON BARBER? Kieron Webb is making a name for himself in the hairdressing world and is regarded as a respected educator in the field of men’s hairstyling. For over ten years, Kieron’s exciting career has taken him around the globe including most of Europe, the USA, China, India and Australia.
Kieron kicked-off his career with renowned hairdresser, Trevor Sorbie, where he was assistant to Angelo Seminara. He then joined hairdressing icon Anthony Mascolo, and became a part of the TIGI International Creative Team very quickly. During his 8 years of working alongside Anthony Mascolo, Kieron became a valued and knowledgeable instructor, holding hairdressing shows and seminars both around the world and at the London TIGI Academy. In this role, Kieron worked on creative collections and created looks for educational DVDs and advertising campaigns. He has also had the opportunity to work backstage at London and Paris Fashion Weeks, as well as on key editorial shoots for widely circulated publications such as Clash, Estetica and Hunger Magazine.
Known for his creative approach and attention to detail and passionate about the creation of men’s hairstyles, Kieron was inspired to specialize in this craft.
“Hairdressing is highly creative,” says Kieron. “Hairdressers are constantly looking at ways to create different textures and finishes using classic cutting methods and then applying advanced finishing techniques.”
Barbers work with a dynamic approach while aiming for a specific and precise outcome: “I want to bridge the gap between the hairdresser and the barber,” says Kieron. “My goal is to take the art of the hairdresser and the precision of the barber to create men’s hairstyles for the contemporary market.“
It is the sheer passion for men’s hair and a love of men’s fashion that motivated Kieron to take his career to the next level. With the launch of THE LONDON BARBER, Kieron developed a trend based education concept aimed at giving barbers and hairdressers the perfect mix of skills and know-how to take on any client with confidence.
“THE LONDON BARBER is my opportunity to express myself creatively while sharing my passion, knowledge and experiences from teaching around the world.”
