The condition of your hair and scalp is important to your overall health and well-being. In many cases there is a direct link to a lack of vitamins or mineral levels in the body, as well as being an indicator of stress, illness or medication interactions.
As one of the leading barber's shops in Buckinghamshire, our knowledge and experience of Trichology means that we understand the science of the structure, growth cycle and health of different hair types.

- About us -
Maria Lourenco....Maria had a calling to be a hairdresser from a very early age. When Maria was only 8 years old she used to search the classified adverts in the local paper that her parents had at home. Years went by but Maria didn't give up looking every week for hairdressing jobs.
As soon as she was old enough to be a Saturday girl she asked at the local hairdressers if she could help out in there free of charge as this was to be her chosen career. This made her feel very grown up and she worked tirelessly with an enthusiastic twinkle in her eye and smile on her face.
The years went by quickly and after working for various hairdressers Maria decided to take a proper hairdressing course which lasted two years and took her to the highest level possible. Maria went on to work for two very famous hairdressers in Lisbon, Portugal and Cascais, Portugal. Maria finished her work in Portugal working along side the owner of the most popular traditional barber in Cascais before deciding to move to England and continue her great adventure.
In October 2007 Maria moved to Deddington, Oxfordshire where she worked for Steve Miller and also pursuing her own mobile hairdressing which was very successful. In 2011 Maria took further courses at Oxford Valley College which included cutting and colouring.
In November 2013 Maria opened her first Barber shop in Castle Street, High Wycombe. During December 2013 Maria had a one to one intensive two day traditional shave course with Mark Sproston (The Shave Doctor) who is the master of this science. This course was to refresh her skills and help her become the best she could be in the career she has chosen.
In 2017 Maria completed a NVQ Beauty Therapy Level 2 Course . In 2018 she attended a Wahl seminar specialist: The Fade.
In August 2020, after a long and very hard studying program, Maria graduated in Trichology (science of studying hair and scalp diseases and disorders). Maria is now not only a very skilled barber, with over 30 years experience in the profession, she is also a Trichologist consultant.
Maria also went through a very intensive training to become an Advanced skin Specialist. She she's qualified in specialties such as: Anatomy and physiology, High frequency, Advanced skin core knowledge, Facial electrics, Radio frequency, Medical Peels, Medical micro-needeling, laser and IPL, Skin rejuvenating, Micro-current and Nutrition, Covid19 infection prevention and Sales and Management.
Maria is now studying Phlebotomy and has a few other courses lined up for the beginning of next year 2022.
Shakir was 16 when he started college doing an engineering course he progressed through his level one and eventually went on to level 2 but during his level 2 course he lost all interest for the course and started getting interested it barbering. But he still finished the course and got his qualification. But whilst he did this he was researching barbering videos and getting as much knowledge as he could about the trade. He then grew confident enough to start cutting his own hair and his brothers and the journey took off from there. As he cut his hair over and over again his skills and knowledge grew and his friends even grew confident enough to let them cut their hair.
After shakir finished his level 2 course he started searching for barbering courses and apprenticeships and after about 9 months of searching he found lourencos barbershop. Maria trained him for two very intensive years. He is now fully "NVQ Level 2 Barbering" qualified, delivering high quality hair cuts and beard trims.
Shakir has been growing more and more each day in the barbering profession. He works alongside Maria lourenco, delivering the highest quality haircuts and beard trims he possibly can. He is a very talented professional, applying the working ethic and skills that he was taught by Maria Lourenco. His reputation is growing really fast. God knows what he is up to next, lets wait and see!
