Matthew Patten

Rocket was set up in 2006 by Matthew Patten to fill a gap in the mens barbering market. His aim is to give professional advice and expert haircuts to people who know and appreciate the difference between a good and bad haircut.

He specialises in low maintenance styles with precision cutting. Flat tops, quiffs and pomps, through to skin fades and heavy weight lines, textured crops and much more. Beard trimming is another fine art we have perfected.

Matt has been hairdressing for over 33 years and so far has not come across a head of hair or beard he could not improve on.



Traditional gents hairdresser. Light and airy modern fittings. Matt gives excellent cuts. Prices are competitive and good for central Chichester.

Matt and Miles really made me feel welcome and are a credit to their industry. Matt gave me suggestions for a new style which I went with reluctantly as I’m not one for change but loved it and have kept the same style since.

I began going to Rocket a few months ago and can only praise their level of service on all levels. Miles is always very accommodating and really takes the time with his clients to ensure that they are fully satisfied with their style. His attention to detail and professional/friendly manner gives me no hesitation in recommending Rocket.
