Nestled in the picturesque village of Hollingbourne, near Maidstone, is Rock Paper Scissors Barbers – the well-deserved winner of ‘Kent’s Best Barbers’ at the prestigious Englands Business Awards 2023.

At the helm of this thriving establishment is Amba, a trailblazer in the world of hairdressing who, at the tender age of 19, dared to dream big and launch her own business.


Amba's journey to success has been nothing short of remarkable. From humble beginnings as a budding stylist in Bromley, she quickly realised her desire to create something more personal – something that transcended the ordinary barbershop experience.

From there, Rock Paper Scissors was born, a barbers where every haircut tells a unique story and is tailored to the individual preferences of each client. In June, the business will celebrate its sixth birthday!

What sets Rock Paper Scissors Barbers apart is Amba's unwavering commitment to providing a bespoke service that goes above and beyond expectations. From traditional cuts to daring mullets, no style is too challenging for the team, and Amba understands that a trip to the barbershop is more than just a routine task; it's a chance to unwind, relax and leave feeling rejuvenated.

Nevertheless, Rock Paper Scissors’ path has not been without its challenges. Like many businesses, it faced the unprecedented hurdles brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.


True to form, Amba and her team persevered, adapting to the ever-changing landscape with resilience and determination. As the world slowly began to reopen, they welcomed back their loyal customers with open arms, grateful for their unwavering support during uncertain times.

Amba's dedication to her craft has not gone unnoticed, with the 2023 Kent's Best Barbers award win serving as a testament to her hard work, creativity and unwavering passion. To be recognised among hundreds of nominees was an achievement in itself, but to emerge victorious was nothing short of a dream come true.
