A s the number of barber shops across the country continues to rise and the industry enjoys a huge resurgence, one salon in Ilkley is proving style and substance really can go hand in hand.
Welcome to Dexters, a cutting-edge outfit that delivers an old school touch with a refreshing modern twist.
Launched by Josh Matthew in the beautiful spa town earlier this year, Dexters is going from strength to strength with its approach to male grooming and client satisfaction.
For this is not just a salon, it’ s an experience, where clients can sit back and enjoy a beer, a fine whiskey or a fresh coffee while Josh, senior stylist Kat and upcoming talent Sol take pride in delivering an exemplary hairdressing service.
Offering everything from traditional cuts to beard grooming and cut-throat shaves to nasal waxing, it is little surprise to hear Dexters is proving a huge success.
Josh, who has been in the hairdressing business for 18 years said: “Male hairdressing and grooming has completely changed over the years and men are now not just looking for the ultimate treatments, they are demanding them.
“Long gone are the days when men were simply happy with a high-street barber, nowadays they want to be pampered and groomed – the modern man is far more conscious of how he looks and that is reflected in the number of salons specifically geared to male grooming and the reason we launched Dexters in Ilkley.”
