I thought i’d start my brand new blog by introducing myself and sharing some things about me that you might not already know. If you don’t know me at all keep reading, if you do already know me have a read and see if theres anything you didn’t already know.
So, i’m Pete, 32 years old from Liverpool, I’m a Barber and Brand Owner of Cutthroatpete. At around 10-11 I joined the local church choir and used to get paid £3 to sing at weddings. Fast forward a few years to senior school where I was a big kid and the PE teacher told me i’d be a good shot putter. Turned out I was alright at it as I ended up representing Liverpool and later made the Great Britain Under 20 squad. I hated school with a passion though. I was never academic and the best day of my life was walking through those gates for the last time as a 16 year old.
I was a security guard for the Barclaycard Premiership Trophy straight out of school. Travelling around the country, I took it onto the Big Breakfast tv show for a slot with Razor Ruddock. (one of the highlights)
After a brief spell of being a security guard I decided I wanted a trade and took on a barbering apprenticeship after enquiring with my local barber. I wanted something that I could learn and perfect and I wanted something where, eventually, I could be my own boss. That was the start of all this and after several jobs in barber shops over Liverpool, I’m just full of stories and knowledge i’ve built up over my 14years as a Barber.
I’m now the owner of 2 really successful barbershops in Liverpool City Centre, have my own line of Men’s hair grooming products and a range of Cutthroatpete Apparel that changes seasonally.
I’ve been wanting to write a blog for ages, I started one a few years back but it was bad timing, I was just starting to think about opening my shop in town so I had loads of things distracting me.
I have always had an idea of what i’d write about because my job is so interesting and I get up to some pretty cool stuff in my spare time too. I will be covering loads of different subjects, not just barbering or male grooming, although, I will be sharing some tips/reviews on different products and techniques etc related to barbering.
I have a passion for cars, music, various sports, fashion, and photography and am looking forward to making some blog posts to do with these things too. As well as regular blog posts I will also be posting some Vlogs. I felt as it’s 2016 and I really enjoy watching other peoples vlogs i’d throw some in there to keep things interesting. I have a great schedule of posts already that i’m dying to share with you all but i’ll try not to be too keen and post them all in one go!
If there is anything you would like to see a blog or vlog post about please don’t hold back, drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and i’ll try my best to see if I can work something out.
I’m looking forward to sharing some cool posts with you and hopefully giving you a bit more of an insight into my life.
