Sponsor: The Blind Pig

The Blind PigThe Blind Pig barbershop and salon is run by husband-and-wife team Louis and Dani Holland.

Louis is the original inspiration behind the Devon & Cornwall Beard & Moustache Championships. Mr DCBMC was getting his beard tidied up in preparation for the British Beard & Moustache Championships in 2014, and Louis said “that sounds like brilliant fun, we should do one in Plymouth” – so we did!

Tucked away down the side of Jury’s Inn on Moon Street, at the edge of the city centre, the barbershop stocks top grooming brands Reuzel, Suavecito, Layrite, Pinaud Clubman, and more. Louis offers the full range of barbering services, from contours, slicks and flat tops to 60s mod styles, plus beard and moustache shaping and grooming, and wet shaves.

Dani is responsible for Mrs DCBMC’s ‘My Little Pony’ look, and also colours and styles the mermaid locks of Mariner Jack model Jess. An award-winning Master Colourist, she offers Elumen, Kerasilk Keratin blow-dries, balayage, and the full range of traditional and modern cutting and styling techniques.

They’re also two of the nicest people you could hope to meet. If you’re in or near Plymouth, we highly recommend you check them out.
