Meet the Ruffians #8: Michele who works in Covent Garden

If you couldn’t tell by now, the people who make up our Ruffians team come from all different backgrounds and walks of life. We like to think this is what makes us so special. Up next in our Meet the Ruffians series is Michele from our Covent Garden shop. When he’s not barbering you’ll find him riding his skateboard and listening to punk rock. When at work? He’s the go to man for classic cuts and taper fades.

How long have you worked for Ruffians?

I have worked at Ruffians since the 1st of September 2017 – so all in all, that makes it 1 year, 7 months and 10 days

Tell us about your most memorable day at Ruffians

The Christmas party was a grand ol’ time, was great to see all the shops together, mingling and having fun. The awards ceremony was great, seeing everyone support each other, in victory and defeat.

When did you decide you wanted to cut men’s hair?

I got into barbering through my girlfriend, she’s a hairdresser and she used to cut my hair. I used to sit and think “This looks fun! I can do this!”, so I did!

If you could cut any celebrity’s hair, who would it be?

Do you have any tattoos? Which is your favourite and why?

I have many tattoos all over. My personal favourite is the sunset dude on my bicep. It reminds me of being home
