Denise Sawyer

Master Barber

Hi. My names Denise & I have been a Barber for 34 years. I started my career in Hungerford working for Robert Johnston then went on to work in A Barbershop in Newbury for 21 years & have currently been working in a Barbershop in Marlborough for the last 7 years. I am very passionate about what I do & take a lot of pride in my work. I am a fun person to be around, sometimes I can talk a bit too much. I am very much looking forward to meeting lots of new faces & maybe some familiar ones too.
