A gentleman's barber shop has moved to larger premises as it looks to send its products across the world.

Swagger and Jacks has opened a new 13-chair shop on Orford Hill in Norwich as it looks to build on recent success and the booming male grooming industry.

The move marks the third shop in three years for the company and now there are plans to move into Cambridgeshire.

Director Mark Young said: 'We are hoping to open in Cambridge in about a year from now. It has taken quite a while to get this shop how I wanted it to open.

'While we want to grow, we want to grow in East Anglia as a whole.

The shop has expanded into the haircare, beardcare and shaving sectors by producing its own range which is now available on the continent and in Scandinavia as well as department stores across the county.
