Domenic (Domenico Di Martino), originally from Italy, first opened 'The Gentleman's Hairdresser' in the centre of Cambridge 50 years ago - that's a long time to be cutting hair! More recently he moved to his current location in the more relaxed area of Newnham, and despite a prolonged period of ill-health, he is still working there on a part-time basis (appointments only).
Apart from Domenic, the day-to-day running of the business is in the very capable hands of Svetlana (who prefers to be called Sveta, if you can pronounce it!), originally from Russia; Yanis, originally from Crete; and Paddy, originally from Thailand, all of whom are expertly proficient at what they do.
We pride ourselves on providing a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, as well as a top-quality, professional service. That's why so many of our clients have been coming back to us for years, and it's why we are confident we will continue to be Cambridge's premier barber for many years to come.
So if you haven't already been here, come and give us a try! You don't need to make an appointment - just come along and we will attend to your requirements.
