Profile of Mr Muhammad Firdaus bin Osman
Starting out at an early age of 14, Firdaus started cutting hairs for his neighbours and friends. At age 16, his skills impressed a barber so much that he was offered a ‘seat’ in his salon.
During his National Service stint with the Singapore Civil Defence Force, Firdaus was the ‘official’ barber of his fire station. Even after his National Service stint, he perfected his skills by offering his colleagues at the shipyard haircuts and shaves.
His formal education in barbering started when he was posted to the United States on an oil rig. There he was taken under the wings of Nigel Maconell. Under his pupillage, Firdaus horned his skills and in 7 years was an accomplished barber.
During the oil and gas crisis and unfortunately retrenched, Firdaus saw himself giving a shot being a full- time barber. He has not looked backed since.
Today, Firdaus can boast to have been placed amongst the top 3 at the Golden Scissors Awards in 2018 (Singapore) Hair Tattoo. Having trained and providing consultation service to new barbers and barbershop owners. He has been a judge on various barber competitions overseas. His humble and determination made him an obvious choice to lead our team of Trainers.
