I feel like I've got the best job in the world - I'm cheating at life. I get to come into a beautiful shop, do something I love and catch up with people that have become close mates all day.
Hi, I'm Miles, I've been at Murdock almost five years. I've always been based in one of my favourite areas of London, Covent Garden. I grew up just outside London but was always hanging out in Camden and the west end.
I was always interested in people when I was a kid, I loved meeting people and getting to know their stories. When I was younger I knew I wanted to be in a job that would allow me to get paid to hang out with people, after a few attempts at finding one (don't ask) I became a barber. I love coming to work knowing I get to chat to clients that have become friends, and even try and make some new ones. I feel like I'm cheating at life, I get paid to do something I love and have even got the opportunity to travel the world.
In terms of cutting hair, I was always interested in hair styles. I've gone through some absolutely shocking haircuts in my life, and I'm only 27! I think looking back and laughing at your old styles is a great thing, it's all part of your journey to the perfect cut. I love doing traditional haircuts with a modern twist, but truthfully, I believe the best haircut is the one your client wants. If a simple short back and sides will make you feel good and confident in yourself, then that's what we'll do while we laugh and get drunk (just you, don't worry).
