notjust // More than a Manchester Barbers

Manchester is rapidly becoming the centre of the male grooming revolution. From style and art to creative growth, barbers in Manchester City Centre (and particularly the Northern Quarter) are waking up to what it means to be a barbering institution in the era of the creative revolution. 


NQ // MCR //

notjust lies outside of the fine line between barbering and creative pursuits. Since its inception, notjust was never simply about becoming the best barbers in Manchester, or settling with offering the most unique haircut experience in Northern Quarter. What notjust represents is growth, both a personal pursuit from the collective, and the desire to emit this creative growth to the clients who cross their paths each day. 

Owners Tom Burbidge and Nathan Haley are challenging the meaning of city centre barbering, with the aim of marrying their ethos and goal of continual growth.
