The Gentleman is Brindley Place’s first traditional barbers and has hit the ground running just three months after moving in.

Situated on Cumberland St, The Gentleman is enjoying a consistent flow of business from those that live or work in the surrounding area as well as those from further a field. This is due to its appealing mix of traditional services like haircuts and shaves, and modern grooming techniques like threading and facials.

Owned and managed by Andrew Withers and Damian Wasiak (who has 14 years’ experience in the barber industry), The Gentleman is the duo’s first barbers in the UK. Westside BID supports business diversity in the area, so it is great that the area’s first high-end barber signifies the start of a successful business venture.

As well as its grooming services, The Gentleman stocks a range of high-quality skincare products and fragrances and are the only stockist of Truefitt and Hill in Birmingham. They also stock other premium brands like Anthony, an American skincare range specifically for men.

Commenting on business to date, as well as the Westside area, owner Damian Wasiak said:

“Business is doing well – we’re in a beautiful location and have a wide diversity of customers on our doorstep, we’ve been working hard to retain them through maintaining excellent levels of service and widening our offering as much as possible. We don’t just aim to attract customers we make sure they come back too – and so far, so good!”
