Born in Dalston, east London, Barry Mero's upbringing
was working class but not poor. His mother was a
stallholder on the Ridley Road market – the garden
plots at the front of his home were cemented over
to become part of the bustling marketplace. At the
age of 16, Mero began selling hairspray and cosmetics
 there before setting up shops in Dalston and Brixton.


Ever the entrepreneur, he spotted a disparity between
the outlandish fashions of the time and the conservative
make-up that was available. He then began his mission.


 

"I wanted to be innovative. I wanted to have different
products that were more glitzy and sparkly. I
wanted to be more fun and wacky. One of our
biggest sellers was black nail polish – and
 still is – because nobody else did it.
"


 

So in 1982, Barry's first products – nail polish in 72
colours & dazzle dust, a finely milled
glitter – went into production!



"In those days I would do everything," he says. "We used
 to mix dazzle dust on the kitchen table, it was a fun item
everybody liked because there was nothing else like it. I
was always quite good with colour – everybody had nail
polish, so we called ours nail paint just to be different.
"




 


Barry M soon became a cult name in the field of colour cosmetics.


Back in those days, if you were a new romantic, a punk
or goth, the chances are you would have been using
Barry M to make your fashion statement!



Now, many years' later Barry M is now the
Britain's leading colour cosmetics brand
-
other big beauty companies may claim to be
British but, in fact, very few of them really are!




That's important because, when it comes to having a
British heritage and a British eye for colour
and style, we're proud to be True Brits.



So we're proud to offer our customers this
unique mix of high quality, cruelty free,
on trend products at affordable prices!
