It’s crazy to think how a small idea can grow and expand into a business, then a brand so quickly.
Stuck in a job I hated, working for minimum wage more a less, I was adamant I wanted my own barbershop. I knew absolutely nothing about business, finances or staff management. In the back of my mind, I knew it would work. Within 6 months I had 2 business awards and on probably one the best artistic hair teams in the world with the Young Feds. @themhfed .
I now have 2 shops, With the greatest staff members I could possibly ask for! It makes me so proud that them themselves now win awards like @kilianmaddison winning @hjmen barber of the year.
I’ve been asked to judge top awards, worked with some the worlds biggest names in music and Djing. Travelled the globe and represent two of the worlds biggest hair companies with @denmanbrush and @osterpro.
I’ve done reality TV shows all from this simple idea I had numerous years ago.
I feel extremely lucky how far I’ve come within 5 years.
Alot of people like me, many can’t stand me 🤷🏻♂️. I’m very opinionated, charismatic and haven’t licked any arse to get where I am in life.
Just me and an amazing team of barbers!
2019 is looking insane with something in the pipeline no barbers has ever done! 🏎🏎🏎🏎🏎🏎
Up and coming future boxing Mike Tyson @parnell_lees. 🎖🥊
Been trying to re work on my photography and my own unique moody/urban style I was renowned for 12 months ago. Totally got bored with posting on social media. So I’ve bought a new laptop, camera and lighting rig out so expect cool images coming soon! 📸💯🖤
Danny&Co. Barbers have stepped away from Instagram over the last 6/8 months. The lack of originality, highly edited photos and barbers posing with added motivational life quotes was sending me west! 🙄
I wanted me to step away and reevaluate my social media presence!
Videography is now the future!
Realising this more visual content will be coming soon.
Like past social media images I have released, it will be second to none. .
A dedicated Youtube channel is coming soon with Oster tutorials, hilarious comedy content, Danny working undercover in other barbershops where they don't know who is he, interviews, tips and business advice.
We also have something huge coming along which I can't go to deeply into with the worlds largest motorsport 🏎💨
Filming with a new Sony A7 iii taking visuals to the next level. 🎥📸💻
Danny&Co is evolving are you?
We are living in a digital revolution..... 💁🏽♂️🤳🏻 Pixels now control peoples lives.
Stepped away from posting haircut photos for a good 6 months, to spend time with my family, friends and growing my Danny&Co Uppermill business!
I’ve had an amazing 6 months travelling, partying and working on myself. I’m back..... Haircut- @kilianmaddison
Clippers- @osterpro 606
Styling and editing- @dannyandcobarbers
There is always that certain someone you just connect with in life.... whether you’re from the same area, country or even religion. 😂👀
I’ve known @tariqhowes now for over 3 years and I class him as literally my best mate within our industry. The guy is an absolute star. If you have seen him cut hair you know he’s blessed by the hands of Allah himself. We have been on an amazing journey so far in our short lived career as big bollocks Barbers. 😂🤪 To me it’s one of the funniest times of my life. We just click, something rare in this day and age, with all fake shit that goes on within our industry. I hope this guy nothing but the best and I know he will get very far in what he does. Tariq you are a fuckin G, 🙌🏼 Thank you again for asking me to be god parent to your children. 👀😳😂✌🏼
(Photos are some of the crazy things we get up to on our travels.)
Salon international was an absolute blast as always!
Very lucky to be part of the amazing line up with @denmanbrush working alongside @wearestaffordhair and @hairbyamycartwright was literally unbelievable!
I met some of my idols in @jamiestevenshair, @leestaffordhair @aarondornhair @kevinluchmun @kycutwilson and of course the man @adee_phelan_5.
The highlight of my weekend was showing my newest staff members @finngallagher5 and @marshallmillerrr what these shows are about. We had a few moments we can’t mention! It’s always a pleasure meeting up with @tariqhowes this guy is like a brother to me. His work is literally second to none. I love the guy. There is a video on the highlights from a club toilet which is a bit raw! Hey that’s me! 😂🔥 Shout out to @carlo_the_lo and @reganwilliams07 also for making the weekend what it was! ♠️♥️♣️♦️
This picture means a lot to me. I’ve been representing the brand Oster Professional now for over 2 years officially. @stylerenegade57 was their God father educator based over in USA. This photo shows love within our industry! He’s one of the greatest showmen I’ve ever seen and I’ve learnt a lot in 3 days. This is the past and future Oster ambassadors all in one photo! What a great time I’ve had in the Ukraine! Thank you to @iris_company for looking after me as always. Also my Ukraine mate @ag_stylist for showing this beautiful city. ✌🏼🇺🇦🇬🇧🇺🇸♥️ I love the people of the Ukraine can’t wait to see you all again soon in March.
My job takes me to so many great places. Ukraine this coming week. Seeing the beautiful people of Kiev. Instagram stories to follow! 👀 If anyone remembers last time I ended up in a random house party in the middle of nowhere the only English speaking person. Fun times! 😂😨🍻
Career defining photo. This literally catapulted me where I now am in my career, on clipper boxes and billboards around Europe. ( My own photography)
I was on top of my game here and had mad passion for men’s hairdressing/barbering. My haircut photos have dropped off recently, that’s due to me just getting bored of it and busy with the barbershops. I’ll get back into it soon. Just wanted some time away from it all and live my life. Instead I took up posting insane videos on my instagram story! 😭🚽💦 I’ll be at Salon international this coming October. 🤘🏼Hopefully see you all soon.
Just wanna say a massive thank you and good luck to my little barber brother @calwilsxn_barber. This guy really will be missed from the Danny&Co team. Can express how gutted I am he’s moved to Australia 🇦🇺 but good luck in your new job @westonsbarbers! Catch up soon when I fly over and get you deported you little prick ! 😂☕️🐸
Well what do I say another year another creamfields done with. Had an amazing time. Massive thank you to @wilkinsonuk, @ad_apt for getting me backstage. An even bigger thank you to @siobhanatvain/ @siobhantaylor__ for getting me there for the rest of the weekend. Made some amazing friends and contacts over the years thanks to Siobhian and her amazing vain creatives team. The crew smashed it as always. Far to many memorable moments to mention. Meeting the man @marckinchen again for the second time this year, chilling with Wilkinson all Friday night. Highlight of the weekend was obviously @solardosound and the crazy genius that is @james_eliot_solardo! The guys a true legend him and Mark. Shout to Frank the Tank @rich_protein and @tariqhowes. Made my weekend very special!
Sorry too @rootedrebelyoga if I corrupted your weekend! 🙋🏽♂️☔️😂🎡⛺️
