Smart Barbers opens its doors

A CONTEMPORARY barber shop has opened its doors in Clevedon.

Smart Barbers in Lower Queens Road has been set up by Ben Smart, who has been a barber for six years and worked in other shops in the town over the past three.

The 32-year-old, who also teaches barbering at Weston College, decided to open his own shop after building up a good customer base in Clevedon.

Ben, who lives in Locking Castle near Weston, said: “I wanted to have the freedom to do things how I wanted to do them and to be able to give the customers more options.

“We cater for all styles - contemporary or classice - and welcome customers of all ages.”

Ben is joined in the shop by Talla Hewitson and Jan Santoro, who have both worked as gents barbers for many years.
