Russell travelled a long way from Alabama to take our Masters NVQ 2 & 3 beginner course. He previously studied finance & many of his friends became barbers. He talks about how he is finding the course. 👍 For more information on our courses, please visit www.londonschoolofbarbering.com
So it was my first trip to the @menspiresalon headquarters in St.Alban's at the weekend for the annual awards and what a cool place it is! So good to meet the people who have been my biggest inspirations since i started cutting hair and to see so many faces behind all the instagram profiles! Alot of the best talent in the world where in that salon on sunday night and it was so inspiring to be able to listen to what was said! Cant wait to get back at it tomorrow☺ Here's a photo i took from saturday which was the result of the quick step by step videos i had posted on my story!👊
💈Throwback Tuesday💈 🏁Year 2014🏁
It was the era of "Pineapple cut" "Bert of Sesame St hairstyle", you remember those days? •
Slick Barbers Co. is an initiative to relive the glory days of our local neighborhood barber shops and the dying art of barbering in the Philippines.
Let's be honest, barber shops ain't shit in the Philippines 'til early 2014. It's the place for men who doesn't have distinct hairstyles. Just a 15min required clean cut for school or work for 40-50php. But if you want up to date hairstyles, Salons are the place to be that can range from 70-100php back then.
We were inspired by old local barbers with their blending techniques, having tapers and crisp clean linings. I guess were just bunch of kids who chose to fool around with clippers & scissors more than spray paints & skateboards.
We only do twice a week pop up sessions & home services back then til we had enough brothers to maintain us a regular place to do our thing with only mono-block chairs and bathroom mirrors.
Now we have at least a decent looking barber shop with air conditioning and waiting area inside the shop. Lol
These things keeps us inspired & going through it all. Forget what you heard! Keep it slickkk!
Shout out to all the patrons from day one who knows that the struggle is real! Hahaha!
