Award winning barber and owner of Sovereign Grooming with salons in Aberdeen and Edinburgh, Kyle Ross, and marketing guru Ryan Crighton, are to open a hair salon and barber school in Glasgow.
Backed with investment of more than £500,000, they are taking over three floors / 2,570 sq. ft. of 38 Renfield Street in Glasgow City Centre, creating 20 jobs and providing 15 week long courses.
Kyle said, The industry was facing a skills crisis before Covid, and this has been exacerbated by the extended shutdowns the sector has experienced since April 2020. Scotland’s salons need a fresh injection of talent as soon as possible and we are working with partners to deliver the equivalent of an apprenticeship, condensed into an intense, 15-week, full-time course.”
We wish them well on tis exciting new venture!
