Midland Barber Brand, The Dandy Gent, Expands.


Owner of renowned Derby-based barbershop and product manufacturer, Shane O’Shaughnessy, is looking for experienced barbers to work from his third Dandy Gent branch opening in the Nottingham City centre this summer.

Following a strong growth in business in Derby, Shane feels that the time is right to expand outside of his beloved Derby and into the developing ‘gateway to Nottingham’ adjacent to the city’s beautiful train and tram station.

The Dandy Gent was founded in 2012 as the eye-catching brand for busy barber, Shane’s new range of 6 handmade traditional grooming products. These included shaving cream, soap, oil and beard care products.

The popularity of the products and its traditional branding led Shane to re-brand his small Derby barbershop in-line with the products – a move that has proved a master stroke for the Master Barber.

Gentlemen’s grooming and the beard revolution was in full swing by 2015, his books were full, his product range had more than doubled. By 2017 Shane had opened his second, and now flagship, shop in the award-winning Cathedral Quarter of Derby’s busy city centre.

Today Shane steers the good-ship Dandy, based at his Irongate shop – and is looking for barbers to continue to build his strong reputation – this time in the neighbouring city of Nottingham.

Applications, in the first instance, should be directed to:  shane@thedandygent.co.uk
