A Carrickfergus man has proved he is a cut above after being recognised as the first Grand Master Barber in Ireland.

Sam Arthur, of Sam’s Barber Shop, North Queen Street, Belfast, was examined and accredited by the British Master Barbers.

The award looks closely at the barber’s skill, professionalism, health and safety standards and business management.

Last year, Mr Arthur was also named Best Barber at the Northern Ireland Hair and Beauty Awards.
