A new barber shop, which has opened in Slade Green, has been shortlisted to take part in this year’s Britain’s Best Shave competition.

With a handpicked team of carefully trained staff, Sabai Barbers has been open for just over a week, and has received many positive reviews online.

One Facebook user said: “Good skin fade, on point beard shape up and very friendly service”.

Offering free drinks, online bookings and even tablet devices for young children to use, Sabai Barbers is dedicated to creating an enjoyable and relaxing customer experience, living up to the word ‘sabai’, which is a Thai word for happy, relaxed or comfortable.

The Britain Best Shave competition, a joint venture between British Barbers Association and the male grooming brand The Bluebeards Revenge, is a yearly event in which barbers all across Britain compete to win the coveted prize and accolade of being the best wet shave barber in Britain.

It starts with 12 regional heats, with the top eight wet shaving barbers in Britain going to a national final.

Owner Kerron Parchment said: “As a young business, winning this competition would mean a great deal to us.

“It would show off our abilities and determination to be one of the best barber shops in Kent, London and Britain.

“The winning barber gets to be the face of the competition for the entire year, with great recognition and associations.”

With unique design features and complimentary extras, customer service is at the forefront of barber shops ethos.

The competition, run by the British Barbers’ Association and leading male grooming brand The Bluebeards Ravenge, comes as an exciting opportunity to the new barber shop.

Mr Parchment added: “Rather than waiting until it’s a necessity to get yourself groomed, Sabai Barbers represent a place where men go because of pride, not shame.

“Proud of the way they’re treated, its efficiency, what the place conveys, how they are made to feel, and the end result of the way they look.

“At Sabai Barbers we want men to feel like their hair simply isn’t growing fast enough, purely because they can’t wait to visit us again”.
