Our very own Academy Director, Sid Sottung, recently became a brand ambassador for British Master Barbers; as well as being awarded British Grand Master Barber Status, their highest honour. Sid joins fellow ambassadors: Darryn Pitman, Chris Moon & Anthony Copeland.
British Master Barbers is an alliance that celebrates & showcases the vast wealth of barbering talent we currently have in Britain. An organisation of barbers, for barbers; British Master Barbers aims to provide a strong network of support to inspire & maintain the highest of standards within the industry.
After its inception earlier this year, British Master Barbers has much lined up for the remainder of the year and the next. June 2015 will see the final of the much-awaited UK Barber Battle Competition at the UK’s largest barbering show, Barber Connect. The alliance also aims to continue adding helpful content to britishmasterbarbers.com to assist & support our nation’s barbers.
“The British Master Barbers Alliance is honoured to have Sid Sottung act on behalf of the organisation as a brand ambassador. We were very careful when selecting our ambassadors to ensure they all brought something unique along with an intrinsic desire to push for higher standards within our industry. We were first made aware of Sid & his work via his strong following on social media. After reading more about his achievements as a barber & international educator, we were extremely keen for Sid’s involvement; he epitomises everything we were looking for in an ambassador. We are confident that with the help of Sid & our other ambassadors we can achieve our long term goals”
