Dalian Dickerson – Stay Sharp Barbershop
Situated just a few hundred meters off sheltered South Devon coast, you will find award winning barber Dalian Dickerson at the Stay Sharp Barbershop in Paignton, UK.
With the gateway to the popular English Riviera at arms length, this beautiful area of England is rich in maritime history, with many piers, harbours, beaches and marinas. A fantastic British location to fill your lungs with real sea air and a top class joint for a fresh new trim, or a shaken not stirred Martini..
The creative 25 year old entrepreneur has been barbering now for 6 years and he runs a tight ship. Dalian started off studying at south Devon college whilst learning his trade in a professional environment as a local apprentice.
He is now coming up to his 4th year anniversary since opening Stay Sharp; it shows exactly how quickly you can taste success if you put the hard work in as a top barber.
Dalian credits his mother who is also a top hairdresser, when we asked him how he got into barbering, “Well my mum’s a hairdresser and she wanted me to go down the same road, I’ve always been creative and just generally love being in a social shop.”
Unlike a majority of traditional British barbers, Stay Sharp offer ladies haircuts on Monday’s and a huge range of professional hair stying products for both men and women. We asked Dalian what his favourite products to use were in the shop, “I couldn’t live without the sea salt spray. It goes well with everything we stock.” We presumed he would just pop down to the shore for unlimited top ups but he assured us he will only use and recommend the Texturiser sea salt spray from Hairbond.
