Chris Brownless is an Uppercut Deluxe Barber Ambassador. Owner of North West Barber Co in Clitheroe, Chris Brownless has made a name for himself as one of the north of England’s truly pioneering and best-respected barbers.
Chris started out as an apprentice in a unisex salon at the age of 17. Over the years he soon figured out which side of the industry he loved the most, and where his skills were best suited. He opened North West Barber Co in July 2013 and has gone from strength to strength growing a loyal clientele and sense of community at his shop.
Founded on traditional values in Accrington in 2013, before moving to the current Clitheroe location in 2016, NWBC respect the history of barbering and its significance in the modern age. The boys at NWBC bring the enjoyment back into men’s grooming. The shop represents the barbers that work there, and there are a lot of personal touches to the shop which make it a welcoming place and a shop where men can hang out. Where some barbershops have lost the welcoming atmosphere that allows gents to want to get their hair cut and spend time there, the very opposite is true of North West Barber Co. In fact, with a bar, coffee shop and heavy records spinning, you won’t want to leave!
Chris loves being behind the chair. He opened a barbershop so that he could stand and cut hair every day in a place he loves, surrounded by things that inspire him, with clients who treat the space like it's their own.
Chris mainly draws inspiration from his clients’ lifestyles but mixes it with his love for all things old from eras like the 50s. His favourite cut is a sharp natural side part with a big ol’ quiff.
Time with Uppercut Deluxe:
Chris has solely used the Uppercut Deluxe range since opening North West Barber Co in 2013. One of the first Uppercut Deluxe European Ambassadors, Chris lives the Uppercut Deluxe lifestyle to the full. Inside his shop you’ll find rare Uppercut Deluxe relics from years gone by.
Why Uppercut Deluxe?
Chris says that; “Uppercut Deluxe were the first brand to offer an entire styling range that catered to every clients’ needs. Each product stands alone as a quality product designed for an intended purpose, and it delivers every time.” His love for skateboarding, punk and tattoos means he has a lot in common with the Uppercut Deluxe lifestyle.
There’s no clientele more loyal than those of North West Barber Co. Customers travel for miles to visit this traditional barbershop, built on the values of timeless style and community.
