Indie Pick of the Month: Pearson and Earl’s
Quirky independent barbershop Pearson and Earl’s will be marking their 3rd birthday in October, and with heaps of 5* reviews and a growing customer base, they have a lot to celebrate. Back open for business after lockdown and with new safety measures in place, they can be found on Gibraltar Street opposite the popular Shakespeares pub.
Who are they?
Pearson and Earl’s was named after owner Gemma’s grandparents on both sides. Having previously worked at Taylor and Taylor’s in Sheffield for 18 years, in 2017, Gemma decided that it was time to establish her own place. First opening with hairdresser friend Emily, who returned from working in Dubai for the new venture, they now have four dedicated members of staff.
What do they do?
They offer a variety of services for people of all age groups and genders, including haircuts, colouring, cut-throat shaves, and hot towel shaves. They use REF products, a vegan and cruelty-free brand, whilst also boasting their own in-house line, Pin Up Barber.
Lockdown brought about the opportunity for a mini refit at Pearson and Earl’s. Since reopening, they have ensured all proper safety measure are in check, including a one-way system and masks available for both staff and customers. Gemma has enjoyed the creativity of working with her client’s longer lockdown locks (and with some interesting home cuts, too!) and is positive about the future, hoping to grow the business to a second unit.
