Barber Gary Lewis, 27, officially opened the Who’s Next? Barber Shop on Tuesday.
Trained by celebrity barbers Diego Elizarraras and Sid Suttongs, Essex native Gary wanted to provide Lockerbie with a hip and stylish creative barbering service and put the town on the style map.
Owner Gary said: “Coming from a strong hairdressing background, I am able to merge my hairdressing and barbering skills and techniques together to offer clients a unique hair style.
“Barbering is a growing industry and I want to become a leader in the profession and bring more people into Lockerbie.
“I’ve already established myself as a creative barber who can help people get the look they are hoping to achieve and I want to expand on this.”
And he and boyfriend Barry Taylor, 32, the shop’s business manager, have big visions for the future.
Barry said: “We want to create a popular local business which we can eventually expand and create employment and training opportunities for the town.”
And the couple have not ruled out eventually turning Who’s Next? into a franchise and opening more shops throughout the region.
