Owner & Director
ANTHONY’S APPROACH is ambitious growth. There is depth and purpose to the development of Gentlemen’s Approach, where his passion extends to helping each team member personally and professionally grow too.
Born into the industry from an early age, Anthony began hairdressing and managing a salon from the age of 16. The concept of a men-specific salon had been a dream since then; a similar place to a barbershop but with the high-end experience of a salon.
Anthony’s has a vision of elevating the industry through education and training. With workshops already on offer, he is driven to ensuring hairdressers and barbers alike have the knowledge and skills to create high-quality experiences that last beyond the salon.
