Our Tribute

We at Hidden Heights Studio are proud to announce that in loving memory of Sam, we will be continuing to produce, stock and sell the ‘Let’s Ave it’ product range.

We feel that it is important for us to continue the legacy of Sam’s ‘Let’s Ave it’ product range, that is so unique to him. The project is one close to founder and owner, Marie’s heart as she and Sam worked closely on the project together. By continuing the range we hope it brings fond memories and a smile to the faces of the people that knew and loved him.

We are delighted to be able to donate the profits to ‘The Lions Barber Collective’ which Sam was an ambassador for. The ongoing success of Sam’s range means we can help to raise vital funds for the work of 'The Lions' and we hope this will enable Sam and the amazing work he did to be remembered in the most fitting way.
