Our founder Oli, began his career in a well established traditional men's barbershop in Southend On Sea. He is the third generation of barbers within his family.
Oli is a qualified barber who mastered his trade at JET Barbering Academy in Essex. His education consisted of teachings from some of the best barbers in the business such as Sid Sottung.
Here at OSH, there is a clear vision for the brand. This is to create a space of comfort and relaxation, where everyone feels welcome, whilst receiving a quality haircut. Oli will always go above and beyond to ensure clients have a positive, friendly experience at OSH and he has a keen eye for detail. A good haircut helps boost people's confidence and that is what OSH is set out to do.
"Oli is a brilliant barber. I took my sons in today, one of which, Archie, is pre verbal autistic. I’d been nervous to take Archie to a barbers for the first time as he can be unpredictable how he will react to certain settings/noises/feelings. I decided to take him to Oli and I am so glad I did as he completely exceeded my expectations. Oli let Archie choose something on the tv, was patient with him even though he moved a lot, he continued to talk to Archie and reassure him even though he does not respond and to top it all off he produced a brilliant haircut. Thank-you so much Oli, we look forward to seeing you again soon."
