About us

The concept of The Barber Agency was born out of frustration with matching barbers with brands. We know that barber crews are like a family and families work best when they all have the same vision. We also know how hard it is to find people who share that same vision. It can be time consuming and frustrating to sift through countless applications.

We'll help you find your perfect crew


The Barber Agency helps barber shops find their perfect crew. We take the time to understand you and your team. We personally interview and vet all staff we send to you, be it for a single day photo shoot, for a temporary or a permanent position. Our aim is to ensure the minimum amount of time is spent by our clients because we will only send you candidates we would hire ourselves.


Taking your career to the next level

If you’re a barber, then The Barber Agency will help you find your next home based on what suits your experience, your personal style and your ambition. We know the UK industry inside out and will give you our expert advice to take your career to the next level.
