Window cleaner turned hairdresser runs caravan salon for those unable to travel

A FORMER window cleaner turned hairdresser is using a caravan as a mobile salon for those unable to travel.

Julian Rahau runs Bravo Barbers, which travels to villages around Warwick and Leamington to give beauty treatments and haircuts to those who cannot get to a salon.

The former window cleaner moved to the UK from Romania three years ago but broke his heel after falling off a ladder.

He says the accident changed his outlook on life and after his landlord introduced him to a hairdresser, he decided to start his training and took up the hairdressing course at Warwickshire College

Julian, who hails from Warwick, said:“I broke my heel when I fell from the ladder and that accident changed my whole perspective on life.

“I’ve always been good with my hands, so I started to train as a hairdresser, took a college course, worked as a barber in a salon and that has got me to this point – where I’m ready to begin my journey with Bravo Barbers.

“I’m going to reach people in areas without a hairdresser – they don’t have to drive or find a parking space, watch the time and be in a rush. They can just walk-in and relax.”

Julian sought business advice from the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce before taking the plunge and setting up his caravan salon.

He added: “You have to have the courage to take that step but I have always thought myself as an entrepreneur with a lot of creativity.”
