Wil and Sarah live and work together in Chippenham, Wiltshire. Wil has lived here almost all his life while Sarah moved here from Scotland in 2015. They got married in June 2016, not long after opening Hepcats, so it turned out to be a pretty exciting year! Wil trained as a barber at the Sid Sottung Academy in Nottingham, which has won awards for being the best training academy in the country. Prior to this, Wil has been a stand up comedian, winning awards himself and travelling the world. He is well respected on the UK comedy circuit and is continuing to perform as well as barbering.
Sarah is a qualified Make Up Artist. She trained originally in Scotland and recently completed further Media Makeup training in Wiltshire. She is experienced in fashion and occassion make up, hair styling, body painting and SFX make up. As well as photoshoots, she has worked on short films, music videos and live art exhibitions. You can see some of her work on her portfolio, here. While she loves all aspects of hair and make up, she has a real love of vintage and retro looks. When they set up Hepcats, their main aim was to provide an unpretentious, fun and laid back atmosphere, No-Messing-About old school barbering and epic make up artistry and hair styling. Anyone can enjoy the retro surroundings. There is no pressure or intimidation here! Just fun and freedom to express yourself.
