Amber said: “I started out as a ladies hairdresser and then I went over to Australia where I trained in traditional wet shave techniques. When I returned to the UK I then trained in gents’ hairdressing at Radbrook College and that’s what I really love doing. When a space opened up at the Market Hall I was thrilled as I was already doing children’s cuts for Compost Kids so I already have a client base there. It’s a really great atmosphere, everyone looks out for each other. I love it!”

Risdon’s is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9am until 4pm and from 8am until 4pm on Saturdays.

Prices start from £5 for children’s cuts, £7 for men’s cuts and £12.50 for a wet shave.

A ‘Gentleman’s Club’ loyalty scheme will soon be launched and will entitle members to regular discounts and offers, as well as a complimentary glass of whisky.
