Emma Blaker, Blaker’s Blades

Business Description

Why choose Blaker's Blades for your barbering needs?

  • Hair has always been a passion of mine, so retraining as a barber, turned my dream into reality.
  • I have excellent interpersonal skills, having worked with senior managers and recruiters, through to young children, in my previous roles in teaching & recruitment.
  • From start to finish, the booking in process is super simple. 
  • I thrive on making my clients feel their very best, starting with a thorough consultation process.

What makes Blaker's Blades unique?

  • I take time to find out what my clients like/dislike about their hair, how this fits in with their lifestyle, in conjunction with an analysis of head shape, neckline, hair texture and how long they want to spend maintaining their style requirements. 
  • When working with children, I am patient and calm;  I fully explain what I am going to do, show them the equipment I will be using and reassure them at all times, so their experience is a positive one. 
  • My services are tailored to you and your individual requirements; you get a truly personalised service.


I provide a versatile and flexible service; you can have a trim or restyle in the comfort of your own home or come to me and avoid the dreaded 'barbershop' queue. The choice is yours.


My Recommendations

Emma is fantastic, she helped on short notice and came to me when I could not leave the house due to having a new puppy! The cut she gave was excellent, would highly recommend her.

from Mike Robinson

We used Emma of Blakers Blades to undertake a pre-school cut of our two young girls of ages 4 and 7, both of whom are already VERY fussy when it comes to hairstyles and both have fairly wild, curly hair. They were very excited pre visit and even moreso post Emma's visit. She handled them both perfectly, with a calming and engaging approach. Brilliant job Emma! We were all very happy with the end results. No mean feat!!
