Master Stylist, Barber, Salon Owner
Gavin's mastery of multiple styles, techniques and colours means that there are few hairstylists in Exeter who can match his passion and expertise.
In a career spanning 20 years, he has worked all over the world with brands such as Tigi, Wella and Fudge, constantly striving to improve his knowledge and technical ability.
As the founder and owner of Renowned Salon, he has brought his wealth of knowledge and mastery of all things hair back to his home town, where he continues to perfect his formidable skills.

IF I'M NOT IN THE SALON...
I like spending time with my children and partner. I enjoy decorating and renovating houses. Visiting new countries has and continues to be a passion of mine.
Tom's keen eye for men's fashion and impeccable taste forms a key part of his work as a barber. Drawing influence from both contemporary and classic styles, he aims to cut hair in a way that perfectly compliments his clients' look, ensuring they walk away looking and feeling a million bucks.
Tom learnt his craft at Gents of London, mastering classic barbering, modern styling, beard care and shaving. Now working at Renowned, he continues to perfect his skills as the quintessential modern barber.
I am currently loving the classics whether it be the slick back, short back and sides, side part or a short and choppy look. I like to finish my cuts with a short taper at the back to blend them in.
IF I'M NOT IN THE SALON
I'm probably making music I play drums and guitar in a few bands so I am likely off gigging or touring with them. Other than that I enjoy Nintendo games and watching hairdressing videos.
Junior Stylist, Barber
Stuart is our Junior Stylist, working his way through an apprenticeship at Renowned under the tutelage of Gavin and attending Exeter College. Now a qualified Barber Stuart is taking bookings and working on the salon floor as well as continuing his training to add long hair and colour work to his skillset.
I enjoy tight fades and classic looks. I take influence from the mid 90s Brit-Pop/Indie looks. I am also an appreciator of beards and have recently developed my own line of beard oils which we use and sell in the salon.
IF I'M NOT IN THE SALON
If not in the salon I am probably cycling along the riverbank coaching rowing or playing Cricket. I love the drama of live sport and enjoy combining this passion with traveling to new places.
