The Quarter West team includes Andrew Mearns, Daniel McBride, Jason Montgomery, Michael Burns and Rachel Reyna each of whom brings their own personal edge to the Quarter West brand. The salon brings a new and fresh approach to barbering.
Andrew started hairdressing back in 2004 and over the years focused his attention to male grooming and barbering, specifically gaining vast experience in the industry. Andrew has a real passion for the job and takes pride in delivering consistent quality haircuts and the best customer service.
Andrew has a real passion for fashion and style, most notably his love of sneakers. He is a family man with a wife and two beautiful children. Andrew is a massive Arsenal FC fan and loves chatting about all things football.
Andrew teamed up with Dan Wild (co-owner) back in 2014 and together the two grew Quarter West barber shop to become one of Belfast's most successful barber shops. Dan fell in love with the tooling side of the industry and so immersed himself in the world of scissors. He quickly became an industry authority on all things scissor related and is revered as one of the top experts in this field today.
Daniel started barbering in 2015 in London. He has worked in a few different barber shops before joining Quarter West back in 2018. Daniel is one of the most talented barbers to have ever worked at Quarter West. He is a very highly skilled barber and is capable of producing a wide range of styles.
Daniel has a quiet, reserved nature and loves the outdoors. He is a keen surfer and enjoys being active. Daniel is also a lover of fashion, style and tattoos.
Rachel is the newest of our barbers at Quarter West. She decided on a career change a few years ago having worked previously in hospitality. Rachel has a very calming presence behind the chair and has developed a very cool style in which she delivers the highest quality cuts and service. Rachel is rapidly starting to grow her own client base which comes as no surprise to us at Quarter West.
Rachel is a very unique person with a love of fashion and style. She is also a big animal lover too.
After Andrew, Jason is the longest serving member of the Quarter West team. He started his barbering journey at just 15 years old when he was just a Saturday boy. From here he developed his love for barbering and began his apprenticeship with Andrew and Dan. Over 6 years later he has developed into a fine young barber and has built up a large, very happy client base.
Football, basketball and videogames are some of Jason's passions to name a few. He has a great personality and a friendly way about him which is why he is so popular.
Michael started barbering in 2017 and has been with Quarter West since then.
He has developed his skill set rapidly and has the charisma to match. His customer service is second to none and he is one of the friendliest people you can meet. He is quickly becoming one of the most booked out barbers at Quarter West.
