Maclure Barbers donate a bespoke hair restyle, a shave and hair cleansing products
24 March 2011
We're please to announce that Maclure Barbers has donated a bespoke hair restyle, a shave and hair cleansing products!
Maclure Barbers is a relatively new addition to the Northern Quarter. Owner Nick Maclure was keen to find a space that matched the brands ethos of being creative and artistic whilst staying true to Manchester’s industrial root.
Nick has been cutting hair for nearly 25 years, originally training as a sculpture and then finding a real passion for hairdressing. He found that the trades became complimentary with the skills developed training as a sculpture in terms of using your hands in a certain way to produce a specific cut providing a great creative foundation for hairdressing.
The team at Maclure’s offer the very best in cutting, brow trims, scalp treatments and sculpted styles plus traditional cut throat shaves with hot towels, with prices starting from a very reasonable £12.
The salon is open Monday to Saturday, 9-6pm.
Call 0161 425 5628 / 0759 061 9571 to make an appointment.
