Spotlight on Savills Barbershop
Savills Barbershop Sheffield have gone from strength to strength in the past year. Here’s what’s happening at the moment.
The new Savills barbershop on Devonshire Street has been years in the making. The culmination of over 15 years of hard work, vision and creativity from owner Joth Davies has turned the humble barbershop into an institution, with people travelling not just from nearby cities for haircuts, but from overseas. It’s not unusual to see a gaggle of people crowded around the doors on a Saturday morning or a bench full of people patiently waiting throughout the day for the Savills experience.
Always aiming to offer more than haircuts and beard trims, Savills have created a bespoke tailoring collection with Savile Row tailor, John Lancaster, who visits twice a month to meet, measure and design suits especially for Savills clients. This collection, along with the barbering skills of Savills, was recently showcased in an Apothecary 87 film advertising the brand.
Savills also now stock giftware, selling products they use that are sourced from across the globe such as Reuzel, Layrite and Lucky Tiger amongst others including Sheffield’s own luxury brand Edwin Jagger. Sitting alongside these are gifts imported from the USA, such as craftsman’s tool sets, whisky stones, hats, shoe shining kits and more, which are all displayed in an antique haberdashery unit, in keeping with the 1920’s vintage barbershop décor.
With a buzz about the barbering industry at the moment, Savills offer an Academy to train up prospective barbers, and also reserve guest spots for other giants of the barbering world, most recently hosting Frank Rimer. There’s always something going on and you’d be hard pushed to find an industry magazine not shouting about the Sheffield shop (they’ve been splashed across the pages of no less than six mags, blogs and websites in the last month).
