- About us -

Ollie Foster - Director/ Head of Education

International Educator Ollie has always had a keen interest in hair and fashion. Growing up, Ollie was a Goalkeeper, Musician, Theatrical and after completing further education decided to peruse a Hairdressing apprenticeship. He did this for about a year before leaving to become a full time P.E Coach while balancing a music career. In 2015, I dropped everything to come back to hair and try my luck with the clippers. “Seeing 47 grow to where we are today has been amazing and we are still watching it grow!” Ollie has educated all over the globe with The Great British Barber Bash and this is a huge passion of his. If he’s not behind the chair, you will find him having a pint in the Cherry with the lads!
