Ever wondered what it's like to be a London barber?

Mark Maciver, aka SliderCuts, has been cutting hair professionally since 2003. During that time, he has nurtured an impressive client list, which includes basketball player Lebron James, world heavyweight champion boxer Anthony Joshua, TV personality Reggie Yates and high-hitting UK rappers Stormzy and Tinie Tempah, amongst others.

With over 89k followers on Instagram, and 20,000 subscribers on YouTube, SliderCuts has travelled the globe cutting hair, making him a worldwide renowned barber. His razor-sharp skills make him an expert figure in his field, and his vast knowledge and business acumen has made him a trusted figure within the wider community. As a result, Mark was recognised for his position as one of the UK’s top black business people following his win at the acclaimed Black British Business Awards in 2018, and was nominated for a prestigious Evening Standard Business Award in 2019.

Through these things and more, Mark continues to perfect his craft while equipping small businesses, his community and the younger generation with the expertise and self-belief they need to flourish and succeed. Through his craft, Mark has built up a highly recognisable brand in SliderCuts that has stretched his reach and impact far beyond the barbering industry, landing him features in Nike’s “Nothing Beats a Londoner” campaign, Facebook’s “Let’s Get to Work” campaign, features in magazines such as GQ and Time Out to name a few. Not only that, Mark opened the SliderCuts Studios barbershop in East London in 2018; is working on creating a product line; and released his debut book in 2019 titled Shaping Up Culture, where he shares key business insights.

Mark’s passion, drive and diligence has allowed him to not only build a successful business, but to also become a role model to many.
