Established in 2018, Craig’s Barbershop is committed to offering high-quality, value-for-money haircuts and in a relaxed, modern-themed salon, offering a barbering service for all lengths, genders and sexualities. With a personal and warm haircutting experience with a queer, trans and autism friendly attitude.
Craig Henderson is a registered senior barber with the HAIR Council, also a member of the British master barbers, he began his hairdressing career as a 17-year-old working in a unisex hair salon in Bolton town centre. He has always had a passion for barbering and wanted to create a personal experience for clients at his own shop.
He realised that his clients were looking for an enjoyable and relaxing service, in a comfortable and friendly environment, and didn't want to pay over the odds for the expertise.
In 2018, Craig opened his own shop in Tonge Moor, Bolton, offering a completely non-judgemental, yet enjoyable experience the clients had been looking for.
Craig’s Barbershop is a family business that is owned and managed by Craig Henderson and his partner, Sarah Timmins. Craig has more than 15 years of experience as a professional barber and hairdresser. He is the personal barber/hairdresser to a handful of professional sporting figures and musicians. Sarah has a beauty and holistic background, and also created our sister company Pixi & Crystals.
Craig’s Barber Shop is affiliated with the mental wellbeing charity, The Lions Barber Collective. As a Lions Barber, he has been trained to create a safe space for his clients to feel comfortable talking about their mental health. In this way, he aims to support the community where appropriate and help reduce the stigma around talking about mental health.
