Our Story

 

Memo's story starts in his uncle's barbershop in a lovely suburb of Istanbul, where he voluntarily did simple errands to help his uncle after school. Promptly he started making extra pocket money because his dedication and hard work was spotted by the customers. His uncle realised this little sweet boy had interest and talent for cutting hair and he was everyone’s favourite. Memo got promoted from doing errands to using clippers to trim necks or using scissors to trim the nose. He became a professional qualified barber at the age of 16 in the historic neighbourhood of Laleli in Istanbul. 

 

His experience and talent lead him to a 5-star-hotel in Turkey as one of the main barbers. Memo's last workplace was at the heart of Istanbul where he had worked for 8 years. A legendary 100-year-old barbershop where film and TV stars, singers, artists, writers, journalists, businessmen, football players and politicians reunite. Memo briefly describes that experience as being the best days of his life.

 

Memo moved to the UK in 2006 and carried on working as a barber from local shops to high-end places like Ted Baker. He opened his first barber shop in Uxbridge in 2017. He had a specific vision to design his very first store and he worked on every detail of this small, four-seated barbershop. He even went to Wales to buy waiting seats from an old cinema. His first shop became quite successful, he decided to open another one with more seats in Wood Green along his business partner Ozkan in 2019. Now his dream is to transmit his passion and dedication throughout London and establish his quality service as a global brand.
