Barrie Stephen in New Barbering Joint-Venture with Sid Sottung

Thursday, 07 November 2019 14:50

Top-notch hair artist Barrie Stephen has entered  into partnership with internationally renowned barber Sid Sottung.  The collaboration between Leicester's most decorated hairdresser and American-born barbering industry icon, will form a new men’s grooming destination.

As from this December the ‘Sid Sottung Barber Shop’will bring world-class barbering to Leicester.

Sid brings three decades of hairdressing experience to the new men’s salon which will be on Hotel Street in Leicester city centre. His impressive CV boasts 17 years at Vidal Sassoon in The USA, as well as countless stints backstage at NYFW. After turning his focus on education, Sid launched his two hair academies in Nottingham in 2014 and 2018. He continues to travel as an international hairdressing and men’s barbering educator in countries as diverse as Mexico, Russia, Ireland and Romania.

Barrie launched his Barrie Stephen Hair business 23 years ago in Anstey and has since grown his start-up company into a five-strong salon business including a training academy and barbers lounge spread across the county, in Ashby, Anstey, Narborough, and the city centre.  He was this year named the first ever patron for Leicester’s Sir Thomas White Loan Charity, whose support enabled Barrie to launch his own business in 1996, when he transformed an old butcher’s shop in Anstey into his first high-class salon.

“Sid Sottung is already an integral part of Barrie Stephen Hair’s professionalism and growth.,” explains Barrie. “Over the last four years Sid has trained up all our Barbers Lounge stylists, helping us skill up and provide amazing male grooming. I am so excited to be partnering with such an internationally recognised expert to bring world-class barbering to the heart of Leicester.

Sid Sottung is also very enthusiastic about this creative and business partnership: “Both Barrie and I have the same energy and drive to make things happen,” he adds. “We share the same goal of outputting high-quality hairdressing. Our new concept will combine all of the excellence of men’s barbering, attention to detail styling, traditional wet shaving and beard design with great attitude. Men can come and feel like a man without all the macho vibes – it’ll be comfortable yet creative.”
