Welcome to the master barber shop

With over 33 years barbering experience, Paul McGann has earned the title Grand Master Barber.

The aim of this site is to invite you on the journey as he continues to learn everyday. No amount of training or certificates can equip you with the knowledge needed on your journey to becoming a Master Barber.

Unfortunately, there is no quick route to the top! Time spent cutting is the only measuring stick for mastery.

A true apprentice will spend 4 years before he can be called a barber.

The title of “MASTER BARBER” in today’s industry is merely a marketing tool. In the traditional barber industry one would be considered a Master Barber after 15 years experience. Too many barber training shops/schools are offering “Master Barber Workshops” with as little as 6 weeks training which just isn’t possible.
