A DALMUIR businessman will be opening a bespoke ‘gentlemen’s emporium’ with an aim to boost men’s confidence in the town.

Andrew McQuade, who owns The Cabin Inn on Dumbarton Road, hopes to create a “safe haven” for men in the area have their locks fixed by grooming experts.

Barber Barber is understood to be the first service in the area that will be fully equipped with a pool table, a Playstation, flat screen TVs, loaded mini fridges and luxury coffee machine.

Andrew told the Post: “I have always been an advocate for men’s services. It is never talked about in schools, but there are so many benefits – not only physically but mentally – to having your hair cut, a facial for your skin and talking about your skins issues with an expert.

“Lockdown hasn’t been easy for anybody, but I feel men tend to suffer in silence when they are isolated, so I was keen to stop that.

“I really wanted to create a space where the men in the town can treat themselves to a haircut with the best in the industry, and have a game of pool.

“This is why I decided to take a leap of faith and open one of the first bespoke emporiums in Clydebank.”

The store on Dumbarton Road will open on January 14

He continued: “Barber Barber will act as a hub for men to hang out, chat to new people and get their desired service, which I hope will help combat isolation and bring business back to the area.

“I have searched high and low for the best barbers and gents stylist, teeth whitening specialist and LED light therapy specialists in the country for the shop to ensure that the town has simply the best people to cater.”

Services on offer include haircuts, hair colouring, perming, shaves, facials, teeth whitening, LED light therapy, acne and skin therapy.

The 32-year-old added: “I honestly can’t wait to open this store to the community. I really hope I can help men in Clydebank gain their confidence and open a safe haven where men can look forward to getting their hair done or feel less anxious about getting acne treatment.

“I can’t believe there is already a hype right now. I am so grateful for my family, friends and local community for supporting me in my new venture. The people in Clydebank are so loving and respectful and I can’t wait to offer Barber Barber to them.”

The shop on Dumbarton Road is expected to open on January 14 at 11am.
