Barbershop bags £500,000 Glasgow investment

More than £500,000 is to be invested in a new barber school in Glasgow which aims to tackle the grooming industry skills shortage. Sovereign Grooming, led by Kyle Ross, aims to train 600 barbers over a decade to help the Covid-19-related staffing crisis. The grooming specialist has secured funding to take over three floors of an historic building.

Initially 20 new jobs will be created and Sovereign Barber School will offer intensive 15-week courses. The business has received financial backing from its group of investors, led by MB Martin & Partners, which specialises in helping budding, early-stage companies grow.

Covid-19 Hair Loss Link

According to a recent study, nearly a quarter of patients experienced hair loss within six months of infection from Covid-19. While the results show a direct link between the virus and hair loss, doctors believe the physical and emotional stress it puts on the individual is the main cause. Telogen Effluvium is a form of hair loss characterised by hair thinning and an increase in hair shedding – and it can be triggered by a shock to the system that induces stress. If in doubt, always recommend your client sees a trichologist first. Upon appointment, they will be able to work out and evaluate which treatment is best for your client with options that can include hair systems, scalp micro-pigmentation or specialised creams and shampoos.
