A Traditional Barber Shop in the heart of Derbyshire

Operating as usual

The Chesterfields are much more at home in here 😍

Today, I closed the door for the last time on The Village Barber.
A few hours of reflection and many many memories flooded in. Each and every one of my customers whether they be for one visit only or every week for all of my five years, they hold a special place in my heart and have made me the person I am today.
I’ll never forget all the stories, all the laughs, all the tears, all the clock watching and not eating. All the late nights and early mornings. All the queue’s and wondering when will it end, and the standing outside for hours waiting for someone, anyone, to come for a haircut. I’ll never forget the people of Whaley that made me love and hate the shop at the same time.
And to each and every single of you, I thank you. From the bottom of my heart I thank you.

It has been an absolute pleasure. And for the last time, I’ll be seeing you πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈπŸ˜˜

For all you car lovers out there, everything is for sale at the right price πŸš— πŸ’¨

Every good thing comes to an end πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈ
After 5 years of trading as The Village Barber, Saturday 26th September will be my last day. I will be closing the doors forever.
Speculation is good fun so I’ll allow you to make up your own mind as to why I’m leaving 😜

Thank you to each and every customer who has walked through my door over the years, I will never forget all the loyalty.
And on that bombshell........

We are back to normal, walk ins. But with the same rules as before:
β€’ No more than 4 people waiting in the shop.
β€’ Come alone wherever possible.
β€’ Please respect the usual Covid rules.
Or in other words, just use your noggin 😜

Be aware that things may change again with new restrictions coming in weekly.

Be seeing you πŸ˜‰πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈ

Social distancing, like a baby πŸ˜‚πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈ

We are stopping all appointments from Saturday 12th September!
We will be working with our usual system of walk ins from that date with our usual working hours πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈ

Sam is back tomorrow!!
We are fully booked tomorrow so unfortunately no walk ins.
But we will take walk ins from Thursday in between the few bookings we have πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈ

Latest guidelines guys πŸ˜·πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈ

We’ve now done every head in Whaley, or so it feels. We’ve decided for the next month or so we will be operating both bookings and walk ins.
Please feel free to pop your head in the door and ask if we have space. If we don’t at that time, we will do our best to accommodate you at a time that best suits you.
Thank you all for your patience going forward.
G’night πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈ

24th July, masks will be mandatory.
Latest news states that wearing them in the Barber Shop whilst having your haircut isn’t as we have enough protection.
So feel free to come in naked, we won’t judge πŸ˜œπŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈ

This Saturday, we will be testing walk ins with Zara for the full day, 9-4pm.
Please adhere to social distancing rules and you know the drill for the rest πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈ
**Please share**


Literally every guy since Saturday πŸ˜‚πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈ
I know you can relate πŸ₯°

Wish someone looked at us the way this guy looks at his barber πŸ₯Ί

The poles a turning,
Business will be returning.
We’re back!!!!
See you Saturday my faves πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈ

Don’t be this guy πŸ™„

Think before you enter The Village Barber for your haircut. If you feel unwell, temperature or the usual symptoms for COVID 19, please please please stay away and stay safe πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈ

The most important day for anyone’s calendar, the 4th July!!!
Haircut and pint day πŸ’ˆπŸ»

Morning all...

After 102 days of being closed, I can now announce that we will be reopening our pub on the 4th July at 11am.
Things will be very different but our main prioity is to ensure we open our pub as safely as possible.

What we’ll be doing to keep you safe;

Training all our team on our updated operating procedures

Conducting daily staff health checks.

Regularly sanitizing and washing hands at least every 30 minutes for 20 seconds with soap and hot water/sanitizer.

Keeping to distancing guidelines where absolutely possible.

Toilet facilities and touch points will be cleaned on an hourly basis.

We will need your help keeping you and our team safe, please:

Please do not enter the pub if you have any symptoms of Coronavirus or are isolating.

Follow distancing guidelines around other customers and our team.

Please log onto our wifi which will register your details and time of visit (for track and trace purposes).

Use our hand sanitiser stations regularly.

Follow the signage, floor markings and any one-way systems in place.

Only two people in the toilet at any one time - use common sense!

Please don’t move the furniture, it has been positioned to maintain distancing.

Stay at your table where possible. We are operating a strict bums on seats policy through our indoor areas.

We’re new to this just as much as you guys! None of us are experts in these new distancing measures. Please bear with us, if you spot something wrong please do let us know, but please, be kind and patient.

πŸ’ˆ OPENING 4th JULY πŸ’ˆ

Please make a note of guidelines we have in place:
β€’ Only come to the Barber Shop at the time of your appointment.
β€’ Attend your appointment alone, unless you are bringing your son(s) who are also having haircuts.
β€’ Upon arrival, wash your hands and use hand sanitiser at the designated station.
β€’ After washing and sterilising you will be asked to fill out a form for purposes of Track and Trace. All information will be kept for 21 days and will be handed to the NHS if necessary.
β€’ Both Barbers will be wearing masks and visors at all times so it isn’t necessary for you to wear a mask, unless you feel you need to. Which we will respect your wishes and attempt to cut around the mask.
β€’ We will NOT be offering beard or moustache trims. We will NOT be trimming eyebrows or offering our waxing services.
β€’ If your child can not sit unsupervised, we will be unable to provide a service.

Please be patient with us at the strange time. Stay safe guys and we look forward to seeing you very soon πŸ˜πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈ

Stay safe dudes and dudettes ❀️


The Village Barbers is now CLOSED for the foreseeable.
It’s with a really heavy heart that I have decided to close the doors until the Coronavirus and the Government deem it safe enough for us to trade again.
I’m aware that my profession hasn’t yet been told to close, but as a Mother of four and with close relatives who fall into the high risk category, I have to consider my families safety over all else.
Please stay safe everybody and I look forward to getting my hands on your wigs when it’s all over.
Peace out βœŒπŸΌπŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈ
