Meet the Barber: Octavian

New to the Strand shop floor is ​Octavian​! You may have seen his work on our social media channels, so let’s get to know him in more detail here on our blog:

1. How long have you been barbering?

I started to work as a barber in 2015, so I have almost 5 years of barbering.

2. Why did you decide to become a barber?

I used to play football for a long time when I was a kid. I remember that I was styling my teammate’s hair before every game. I didn’t really know what I was doing and for sure I didn’t know that’s gonna become my job later, but I knew that I like it. Also, my grandfather was a barber and maybe I inherited this passion from him.

3. What is your favourite Legends product and why?

My favourite Legends product is the pomade because it’s very easy to use and very easy to wash. I believe that it works best on classic, modern styles as well as old-school styles.

4. What hair cut/style do you get requested the most?

The most requested haircut is the classic one, but we also have a lot of requests on skin fade haircuts.

5. What is you top tip for looking after your hair in the winter?

I think the best thing that you can do in the winter would be to have your hair trimmed regularly. Regular trims will keep your hair in good condition and reduce the risk of split ends.
