A man has travelled over 500 miles just to have his hair cut by a Northern Ireland barber.

Ryan Hughes, from Southport, flew across the water with his partner to have his hair styled by Newry-based Ryan Cullen on Saturday.

He travelled over 250 miles each way to sit in the chair at Ryan Cullen Hair on Catherine Street.

Cullen has gained a following on social media for his hairstyles and he shared the story with over 40,000 fans last weekend on Instagram.

He posted a photo of the pair and said he was “humbled” by the move.

He said: "This morning I arrived into "work" like any other Saturday... half asleep. Lol. My first client of the day, 8am, was already there and raring to go.

"Ryan is from Southport near Liverpool and FLEW all the way across the pond with his other half to get a haircut from myself. I have been smiling all day and feel so incredibly humbled by this. He is also a fellow barber which makes it all the more special. A huge thank you to him for making the trip."

Hughes, who is also a barber, responded: “Absolute pleasure to meet you mate. Had a lovely time chatting and an amazing haircut. Thanks man. To quote Arnie, I’ll be back.”
