Rich Overton
November 3, 2014 Meet the Team No Comments

If you’ve been into any of our the Braid Barber branches across Milton Keynes, Leamington Spa and Banbury, you’ve probably seen a few of these faces hard at work. We thought we’d give you a little insight into what makes Leamington Spa manager Richard Overton tick, because we feel that if you know someone’s secret karaoke song, it’s like knowing the inner workings of their soul!

So if Richard is cutting your hair in our Leamington branch, make sure you ask for a Brian Harvey cut and he might give you a discount and break out into song.

*Disclaimer. This probably won’t happen!
