Today with an extremely experienced team, Craddocks will make sure you leave feeling fresh, walking away with the look you went in for. Julie’s team have more than an astounding 120 years of professional barbering experience between them and the art of barbering clearly runs through the family veins as Julie’s father, great uncle and grandfather were also masters of the profession.
Julie told us “My dad trained me to be a barber and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else; it’s in my blood . The Barber shop has been in my family since the 1930’s. It’s a traditional Barbers but today with a modern twist. We offer loads of services including hot towel cut throat shaves, ears and nose waxing, short back and sides to skin fades, perms and colours, beard trims as well as first haircuts where we include a certificate and a little bag to put a piece of hair in. Our favourite product to use on our clients is the Hairbond Texturiser sea salt spray”
Due to super levels of customer satisfaction, among Craddocks Traditional Barbers clients are some elder gentlemen, who have been happily visiting regularly since they were little boys. As an extremely popular traditional business with a hugely repeating client base, Julie has never felt the need to advertise as word of mouth has kept them working hard.
Julie explained, “It’s because of my great team of friendly staff, some days we have such a laugh with our clients, it’s a bit like the TV show ‘Desmonds’ for those who can remember… The customers bring us in coffees, donuts, fruit, chocolates and with the local pub being across the road occasionally the odd half pint of Guinness!” So if you’re in the area or just visiting, be sure to check in to see Julie Renders and the team and if you don’t need a haircut, why not try the Guinness in the pub over the road!
