1 Year On....

Wow…. Where has that Year gone?!

365 Days after opening the doors to the Public for the very first time seems a very long time ago, lots has happened and we have grown quicker than we could’ve ever expected or hoped for, but it also only seems like last week….

We still have all the energy that we did on that very first day too and we are pretty sure that shows. Although its much easier when you’re doing something you love right?

The Team is up to 6 Full Time Staff now with the latest addition of Jimmy, with many regular Guest Barbers also playing a big part in where we find ourselves after the first year. OFF - CUT is thriving, with huge plans for the future. The love & support we have had on a near daily basis from the locals has been nothing short of crazy, some doubted us, some didn’t quite understand us or what we was trying to provide but we truly believe that we have proved them all wrong + some after our first year of trading.

How To: Care for your Beard

A first in our new series of How To’s, coming once a month. And we start off with a Winter Necessity, Beard Care.


You wouldn't use regular face soap on your hair, so it makes no sense to use it on your beard as well. They're both hair, and hair needs shampoo. Fortunately, there are plenty of great beard-specific shampoos out there that use special botanicals to help soften the hair and keep it from getting dried out. Just make sure that whatever you use you like the smell of, since it's right there by your nose.

Keeping your beard soft is the key to not wanting to shave it all off. A dry scratchy beard will be unbearable, and the way to avoid that is to use a beard balm/conditioner. A good balm or conditioner will moisturise your beard, and it will keep it healthy—two important factors in maintaining face comfort. A balm also has the added benefit of working almost like a styling gel, so you can keep that thing tame and not look like you just rolled in from eight years of living alone in the woods.

Baseball mitts, butcher blocks, and beards. What do they all have in common? You need to oil them. While a Balm or Moisturiser does soften your beard, a good beard oil will soften it even further, plus has the added advantage of warding off the dreaded beard dandruff. No one wants to see a guy with a dusting of skin flakes down the front of his shirt after all. And perhaps the coup de grace of a good beard oil is that it will make your beard smell amazing. And since it never leaves your face, smelling amazing is a pretty sweet perk.

Keep your beard from getting tangled and unruly by brushing it everyday with a comb or soft bristle brush. It'll also help spread the beard balm/oil you're using (as well as your natural face oils) to keep your beard as healthy as possible.

We recommend - Kent Combs (Huge Selection to choose from) https://kentbrushes.com/mens/mens-combs


The final piece of maintenance for your beard is that you need to occasionally trim it. Beard hair doesn't always grow evenly, plus, as it grows out, you're going to want to give it a little bit of shape. Visit us at OFF - CUT for this part of the process (Beard Trim - £15)
