Ryan Bartlett – Hairbond England Art Director
Ryan found his feet and passion for cutting hair at the age of just 14, after leaving school at 16. He was trained in classic barbering by the largest independent chain of barber shops in the UK before moving to advance his skills at the Saks Academy in Covent Garden. With his good grounding in the classic cuts working well with the imagination and flare of Saks art team, he was offered the opportunity to assist Luke Pluckrose. Luke was the Art Director at Saks, with a wealth of experience to his name; winning Stylist Of The Year on two occasions, as well as heading and assisting some of the biggest names in fashion. Working alongside Luke on Music videos, fashion shows and editorial shoots, Ryan got a great insight into a whole new world of barbering and hairdressing. After a stint working with Luke at Saks, it felt the right time for Ryan to start creating his own take on men’s hair. He spent two years combining all the aspects of barbering and hairdressing into one room where he currently cuts from, and the “Three Chairs” plan came into fruition.
” It is an amazing honor for me to progress and work with Hairbond, I am very excited about kicking things on and working with an amazing creative international team with education for this unique brand. I cannot wait to get started”, said Ryan about his recent appointment as Hairbond England Art Director.
