On-the-job Professional Barbering experience:

Mr Rizzo Grooming Salon, West End (1 week – November 2014), Faircut 3 Barbers, Mitcham (3 weeks – April 2015) 

I am looking for opportunities to gain more professional experience in a barbershop or salon in London, preferably on a part-time basis, as I also work part-time in a sales and marketing job.  However I would drop everything to work with the right people in the right place.
