A SALISBURY barbershop has proved it is a cut above the rest after it was recognised for its high standards.

Jeff Ts Barbershop, in Castle Street, has gone the extra mile in its customer service, standards, health and safety, and training, to be accredited by the British Barbers Association.

Babershop owner Jeff Timmins said: “This recognition is really great, as barbers we want to give our customers the very best service we can. We want to show through our customer service and dedication that we stand out from the crowd and we have got the edge and can offer a little bit extra than other barbers in the city.”

Following the recognition the barbershop has put up the certificate in pride of place in the store.

A spokesman from the association said: “Jeff Ts Barbershop has demonstrated they meet a range of strict criteria, including a commitment to staff training and have shown they are compliant with regulatory requirements such as legal coverage, health and safety, and policies on sharps procedures and electrical testing, as well as demonstrating a commitment to helping the British Barbers Association to raise standards and protect clients at all times.”
