Director & Head Barber
After reading business and following her passion for hairdressing, ambitious owner Sophia has mixed everything she learnt whilst studying at Toni&Guy academy in Manchester with her natural talent to produce this unique new barber shop. After gaining experience in Toni&Guy Geneva, Switzerland, Sophia discovered she favoured barbering and noticed her home town of Chester lacked a haven for the modern day gentleman to get a good cut and shave and relax in a nice environment. Suave is the first of Sophia’s Barber Shops and is immaculately designed and run to create exclusive experiences.
