Barrie Stephen

I am Barrie.

I am living the dream, living with Poppy Dog and three cats….love what I do and the people I do it with.

Bringing red carpet gorgeous hairdressing to Leicestershire.

I love Leicester, I am a Leicester boy and proud of it.

I am also a European boy, I do long haul but only on a flat….as I can’t deal with jet lag!

I always listen to my “Inner Sat Nav” it always serves me well.


Hi, I am originally from Cologne in Germany and I joined Barrie in the business many years ago.

Daily workouts in the gym and personal fitness are a must for me! I also enjoy long walks with my cheeky Jack Russell Lola and not forgetting cuddles with my Tiggi cat.

Our annual trip to Mykonos can no€™t come around quick enough. I know what you are thinking… Yes I do put my towel down first thing in the morning!


I am Poppy Dog, I am the most important thing in Barrie’s life.

Most of the time I forget I am a dog, I think I am a human being, that’s because I’m treated like a little princess.

I love to go for runs with my Daddy in the morning, and then I spend the day with Tutsie, Anstey and Lincoln my pussy cat sisters.

Group Business Manager

I have worked at Barrie Stephen since 2006 and started as Salon Coordinator, I worked my way up to Group Business Manager.

I am very proud to work for such a red carpet gorgeous luxury brand.

Anyone that knows me will know I’m either chasing after Barrie or on my mobile phone.

I love Champagne & Lady GaGa……so much so I named my Chihuahua after her.

Favourite saying…”If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you”


From my childhood days, one of my great passions has been motor sport.

Since getting a competition license I have taken part in tours and events in the UK and Europe.

Every year I travel with my husband in our Lancia Stratos to Europe, driving the mountain passes often following the routes of the great Rallies such as the Monte Carlo in France and in Mille Miglia in Italy and visiting all the places of interest en route.

Each time we return – I am already planning the next one…..


Hi! I am Sophie, I have been in the hairdressing industry for 7 years and I LOVE it!

My whole life revolves around fashion, for myself i like the “Glam” look, like a lot of people i get my inspiration from the glamorous T.O.W.I.E girls.

I couldn’t go anywhere without my make up on, and my make up bag is always close to hand.

I have a secret love for fast cars…I would have 10 cars if I could.

James Barrie Stephen Colour Director
Elite Stylist

Hi I am James and have been hairdressing for 10 years.

I am passionate about all aspects of hair. I am a Kerastase and Balmain Hair Specialist.

I have worked back stage at London fashion week and worked on numerous photo shoots.

My favourite part of the job is its unpredictability and that no two days are ever the same. I also love how the Industry is always pushing our skills and abilities each season.

I love to travel and to see the world although I am not your typical “Brit abroad”. I like to adventure off the beaten track sampling local life. I have travelled around a lot and my favourite is NYC.

I am doting dad to son Noah and two dogs called Gus and Drew.

My names Ryan the newest addition to the Barbers Lounge at King Street.
