A Deal barber is celebrating after being shortlisted in a competition to find Britain’s best wet shaver.
Enver Yeshibulut, of Kings Barbers Male Grooming in the High Street, showed his shaving skills to overcome fierce competition to make it through to the regional final.
He will compete in March against 14 other shaving professionals in a bid to claim the South East title of Best Wet Shaving Barber.
Mr Yeshibulut, known as Efe, said: “I have worked at some of the best barbershops in London, and am confident that my wet shaving skills are pretty good!
“I’d like to become better known for what I do, and can’t wait to see where the competition takes me” - Enver Yeshibulut, Kings Barber shop
“I’d like to become better known for what I do, and can’t wait to see where the competition takes me.”
If he wins the regional heat, he will then go on to the national final against seven top barbers from across the country at the Barber UK event in May at the Birmingham NEC. The competition is in its third year.
Mr Yeshibulut opened his shop in Deal in August.
He previously worked in the first store of Ted Baker Grooming Room in Central London, and for Haks & Oscar who won Best Barber 2015 Central London and Best Barber 2015 Overall London.
The winner of the 2016 title will receive £500 worth of The Bluebeards Revenge grooming products and merchandise.
