Kirkaldy Barbers Picks Up Best Barber Award

Dunnikier Barbers, based in Kirkaldy, was voted Best Barbers at an event held at Keavil House Hotel last month.

Evelyn Duncan has owned the business with her husband Chic for the past 26 years. Across Fife, there were some 500 businesses nominated for the award and this was narrowed down to 40 for the final.

In the category of Best Barbers there were five barbers who were all up for the top prize.

The business has four fully qualified, experienced barbers who are all self-employed.

It has been up and running since October 1996 and Evelyn revealed how they found out that they had been nominated.

She said: “We were put forward by the public in May. Part of the process was that a mystery shopper came to the barbers and the organisers of the awards also visited to meet the team and ask questions.

“We found out on the night we won. It is a great achievement considering the number of barbers that have opened in Fife in the recent years. We were delighted to reach the final – we never expected to win.

“We hadn’t had a night out together for a long time because of Covid restrictions and decided to treat ourselves.”
