The Great British Barbering Academy


Support Vehicle have teamed up with Mike Taylor (SRB) and crew from The Great British Barbering Academy whereas children, teens and adults with serious and terminal illnesses can receive a trip to the barbering academy in a authentic American Police Interceptor for a range of free hair services from head shaves to wig styling.


Mike Taylor is widely recognised as one of the very best in the business. He has come a long way since opening his first barber shop in Newbury, Berkshire at the age of 20.


He now has a plethora of shops across the South of England and co-founded the British Barbers’ Association back in 2010.


No stranger to teaching others, Mike already delivers training for short courses at his training academy in Poole as well as teaching and assessing barbering NVQ 2 and 3.
