Britain’s Best Wet Shaving Barber is to take to the stage at the UK’s biggest hairdressing trade show this October to show off his impeccable barbering skills.

Fresh from winning the UK-wide title earlier this year, Luigi Caterino, who runs The Italian Job Barbershop in Galashiels, has been invited to perform by the British Barbers’ Association at this year’s Salon International.

Luigi, who was named official barber for Scottish football club Rangers as a result of his win, said that he was excited to be back under the spotlight.

“I’m really looking forward to getting onstage again at Salon International. Anyone in the industry will know what an important event it is, and to have the opportunity to help others to learn with my own skills at such a prestigious show is going to be a really rewarding experience,” he explained.

“I’m so happy to be given the chance once again to show what I do, and very proud to represent Scotland and Galashiels.”

Demonstrating in front of a packed live audience, he will show onlookers how the perfect wet shave is really done, as well as teaching them how to create some of the latest men’s hairstyles for Autumn/Winter 2015.

The event is set to take place at ExCel London this weekend, and is expected to draw scores of industry professionals in from both around the UK and abroad.

It won’t be the first time on stage for the shaving superstar, who stunned judges at the final of Britain’s Best Shave.
