Bristol's Shotgun Barbers HIRING NOW

Posted on: 15 May 2018

Are you an experienced barber or hairdresser? Are you bored of the same old salon setting? Look no further than Shotgun Barbers. Renowned as two of the city's top hairdressing spots, Shotgun's city centre and Clifton locations are loved for their emphasis on atmosphere and great taste in music, as well as top-level barbering expertise. They've established a loyal clientele over the years and cemented their two branches as go-to spots for a top-notch trim in their respective areas.

Shotgun's city centre branch is located on Bond Street, just before the Bear Pit roundabout

Having opened their first Shotgun branch in Clifton in 2014, owners John McMahon and Sam Young went on to open a second location near the Bearpit in the city centre in the summer of 2017 with great success. The pair quickly became locally renowned to be deeply committed to providing great service in a unique environment, gaining recognition for playing and selling a great range of vinyl records in-store and occasionally hosting guest DJs alongside their extensive barbering expertise.


One of the best aspects of the Shotgun experience is their impressively varied range of vinyl played daily in-store, which amazingly doesn't appear to have diminished following the opening of their second store. Records include MF DOOM, Aphex Twin, Jack White, The Libertines and much more to keep the vibes on a high as one of the expert team tends to your trim.


So if you're a skilled barber or gifted hair dresser, get in touch with the teams at Shotgun Clifton or Bearpit Shotgun to find out how you can get involved. There are few salons like it in the whole country, let alone in Bristol, so why not give it a go at one of the most unique establishments in the business.
