Enver Yesilbulut, owner of Kings Barbers Male Grooming in Deal, Kent, recently won the coveted Britain’s Best Shave 2018 competition at the Barber UK show partnered between industry watchdogs British Barbers’ Association and The Bluebeards Revenge male grooming brand.
Enver impressed the judges at the Birmingham event on a number of criteria, including shave preparation, razor technique, post-shave routine, health and safety and overall efficiency.
His prize was a belt to display in his shop as well as £500 worth of products from The Bluebeards Revenge.
It is the second time Enver has made the final round of the competition and it is his second title after securing Britain’s Best Barber, for hair cutting, in 2016.
“It feels amazing. The feeling still hasn’t sunk in,” he said. “I really wanted to win, but I told myself not to get nervous. I knew if I did that it would be game over. It’s the first time that one Barber has won two belts in the competition.
“This is my passion. I have to thank all my clients who allow me to do what I love every day. Without their continuous support it wouldn’t be possible.”
