Meet the Team


Craig Saunders

In 2003 I started my career in ladies and men’s hairdressing. Growing up in London my first job was at a salon in Mayfair, before moving to salons in Knightsbridge, Covent Garden and then Camden, finally settling down in Shoreditch for 8 years. 

In 2017 I moved to Bury St Edmunds, and decided to focus solely on men’s hair. My barbering is heavily influenced by my time as a hairdresser.
I'm equally as happy to get the scissors out to create shape and texture with longer styles, as I am cutting a short back and sides.



Luke has been honing his barbering skills since 2015, and is a well know barber around town. 

He is very passionate about his beloved Chelsea FC, but don’t let that put you off!

His other loves are house music, pie & mash and jellied eels. 

He also loves a chat, so if you have strong opinions on any of the above, then he’s your guy. 

Luke is available for bookings 

Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and 

Available for walk-ins Wednesdays and Saturdays



Zac started his barbering journey in 2020 at west Suffolk college, and has been with Blackbird from the very beginning. 

Zac is friendly, approachable and highly professional in his work. 

He favours classic groomed haircuts, and is just as happy using scissors for longer looks as he is doing skin fades.

A true all rounder.

Zac is available for bookings on

Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays and is 

Available for walk-ins on Wednesdays and Saturdays
