BARBEREVO and BARBER STRONG Discuss Professionalism, Functionality and Comfort In The Shop

As we know, Barbers find great pleasure in using products that help create a memorable experience for their customers. The main goals every day are to make money, save time and provide a quality and professional service. That being said, BarberEVO sat down with functional apparel leader Barber Strong to discuss the main pillars of what makes an ideal situation in the shop, for both the barber and the client.

Barbers adhere to high standards, ethics, and conduct while providing barbering services. This encompasses various aspects, including:

1. Skill and Expertise: A barber demonstrates a mastery of haircutting, styling, and grooming techniques. They keep up with the latest trends, tools, and products to provide quality services to their clients.

2. Punctuality: Being punctual and respecting clients’ time is a crucial aspect of professionalism.

3. Hygiene and Cleanliness: Maintaining a clean and hygienic workspace is vital. Barbers follow proper sanitation practices to ensure the safety and well-being of their clients.

4. Communication: Effective communication with clients is essential to understand their preferences and deliver satisfactory results. A barber listens attentively and provides appropriate suggestions when needed.

5. Customer Service: Barbers prioritize customer satisfaction. They are courteous, friendly, and attentive to clients’ needs.

6. Appearance: A professional appearance creates a positive impression. Barbers should dress neatly and present themselves in a manner that reflects their commitment to their craft.

7. Ethics and Integrity: Barbers operate with honesty and integrity.

8. Continuous Learning: Embracing ongoing education and skill development is a sign of professionalism. Barbers should attend workshops, seminars, and industry events to enhance their knowledge and expertise.

Overall, professionalism in barbering fosters trust and loyalty among clients and contributes to the growth and success of the barber’s business.

Barbers should always be effective and efficient with all the tools, equipment, and processes they use in their daily work. It involves ensuring that everything in the shop is well-organized, easy to use, and supports the smooth execution of their services. Here are some aspects of functionality in the shop:

1. Tools and Equipment: Barbers rely on various tools, such as clippers, scissors, razors, and trimmers, just to name a few. Functionality demands that these tools are of high quality, well-maintained, and properly sanitized to deliver precise and consistent results.

2. Workstation Layout: The layout of the shop’s workstations should be designed for efficiency. Stations should be well-equipped with the necessary tools within reach, allowing barbers to perform their services without unnecessary movements.

3. Appointment Management: An effective appointment scheduling system ensures that barbers can manage their time efficiently and minimize wait times for clients. This may include using appointment booking software or maintaining a well-organized appointment book.

4. Inventory Management: A functional barbershop keeps track of its inventory of hair products, grooming supplies, and tools. This helps barbers know when to restock and ensures they always have what they need to deliver services promptly.

5. Payment and Point-of-Sale System: A smooth and reliable payment system simplifies the transaction process for both the barbers and their clients. Functionality in this area involves using secure, efficient, and modern point-of-sale systems.

7. Client Records: Maintaining accurate and up-to-date client records helps barbers track client preferences, haircut history, and any specific needs, leading to personalized and attentive services.

8. Workflow and Time Management: A functional shop optimizes workflow and time management to maximize the number of clients served without sacrificing the quality of services.

9. Comfort and Ambiance: Functionality isn’t just about tools and processes but also the overall environment. A shop with a comfortable waiting area, pleasant ambiance, and adequate lighting enhances the overall experience for clients and barbers alike.

By prioritizing functionality, barbers can streamline their daily operations, improve customer satisfaction, and create a more productive and enjoyable workspace.

Barbers should always create a welcoming and relaxing environment for clients during their visit to the shop. It involves taking various measures to ensure that clients feel at ease and have a positive experience throughout their time in the establishment. Here are some aspects of comfort in a barbershop:

1. Waiting Area: Providing a comfortable and well-furnished waiting area with ample seating, magazines, and perhaps refreshments, allows clients to relax before their appointment.

2. Chairs: Investing in ergonomic and comfortable barber chairs ensures that clients can sit comfortably during their haircuts and grooming sessions.

3. Adequate Lighting: Proper lighting in the barbershop helps clients feel more at ease and allows barbers to perform their services with precision.

4. Temperature and Ventilation: Maintaining a comfortable temperature and good ventilation is essential for the comfort of both clients and barbers, especially in warmer or colder months.

5. Background Music: Music adds to the overall ambience of the shop and can create any type of atmosphere a barber is striving for. Kept at an appropriate volume, it can create the perfect experience.

6. Cleanliness: A clean and well-maintained shop instills confidence in clients and contributes to their overall comfort.

7. Communication: Friendly and respectful communication between barbers and clients is crucial in ensuring clients feel comfortable expressing their preferences and concerns.

8. Personalized Service: Taking the time to understand each client’s individual needs and preferences contributes to a more comfortable and satisfactory experience.

9. Privacy: Respecting client privacy during the service and providing options for private grooming areas when needed can enhance comfort, especially for sensitive services.

10. Post-Service Care: Offering aftershave treatments, hot towel services, or other pampering extras can leave clients feeling refreshed and well-cared for.

Overall, creating a comfortable environment in the shop not only makes clients feel valued and cared for but also fosters positive word-of-mouth and repeat business, contributing to the overall success of the barbershop.

Wahl X Lister: Take A Load Off.

A safe space to pop your feet up, offload, and have a chat.

Lister have teamed up with parent company Wahl to create a pop-up barbershop at The Royal Highland Show to help raise awareness around mental health in agriculture.

Take a load off. A safe space to pop your feet up, offload, and have a chat. Mental health in the agricultural industry is something that doesn’t get talked about enough. With 92% of UK farmers under the age of 40 ranking their mental health as being poor, it is a hidden problem that we need to talk about.

The pop-up barbershop will be open from Friday the 23rd to Sunday the 25th near the Shearing Pavilion at The Royal Highland Show. Providing visitors with the opportunity to get a fresh hair cut by a professional barber, the campaign will be raising money for The DPJ Foundation and the RSABI, both mental health charities within the agricultural industry.

Attracting over 190,000 visitors each year, this year’s Royal Highland Show will be hosting the Shearing World Championships, seeing shearers and enthusiasts travelling from all around the world to support the competition. Creating this safe space at the event is crucial for those who may want to take a moment to relax and just chat in a safe space.

Martin Booth, Head of Sales and Commercial at Lister, said, “Partnering up with Wahl and offering a service, such as barbering, that can sometimes be difficult to arrange when travelling and working long hours is an important step in our mission to supporting mental health within agriculture. It is vital to raise awareness on this issue the industry is facing and ensure individuals who work in the rural community get access to the support and resources available.”

Lloyd Rees, shearer and Lister ambassador, said, “Many people working in farming and agriculture often feel isolated and distanced from the wider communities. This can have a big impact on their mental health, and without the proper resources and support to hand, can often spiral into something bigger”.

Kate Miles, Charity Manager of the DPJ Foundation, said, “We are really pleased and grateful that Lister have taken the lead with the Take a Load Off initiative to provide an opportunity to promote good mental health in agriculture, the power of taking time and talking. The eyes of the shearing world will be on the Golden Shears so it’s a brilliant chance to raise awareness.”

Wahl Professional Expands Fade It Forward® Scholarship Program to Barber Students in St. Louis and Houston

This year Wahl expanded its one-of-a-kind program to Houston, now providing barber school students in five under-resourced communities with holistic support, including barber college scholarships, local barber mentors, dedicated tutoring to pass their state licensing exams, transportation stipends, and more. 

Wahl Professional, the leader in professional and home grooming electric hair clippers, trimmers and shavers, recently held celebratory events in St. Louis and Houston, bringing together barber professionals, local leaders, and aspiring barbers. The purpose of these gatherings was to commemorate the awarding of Wahl Professional’s Fade It Forward® scholarships to new barber students. The Wahl Fade It Forward® program is renowned as the most extensive philanthropic initiative in the barber industry. Its primary goal is to alleviate the financial burdens that hinder barber students from achieving their dreams of becoming professional barbers. Since its launch in 2018, The Wahl Fade It Forward® program has granted nearly $500,000 in scholarships and support to more than 30 barber students in Chicago, St. Louis, Cleveland, San Diego, and Houston.

This year marked the expansion of the Wahl Fade It Forward® program to Houston for the first time. Wahl Professional collaborated with Franklin Institute to award a scholarship to Jeremy Adams and joined forces with Texas Barber College to provide scholarships to Warren Duckworth and Ronald Shepherd. In St. Louis, Wahl Professional partnered with St. Charles Barber College to award Michael Johnson a Wahl Fade It Forward® scholarship. These new students are expected to complete their mentorship and graduate from barber college later this year.

Garland “G Whiz” Fox, a Wahl Professional educator, presented the scholarships in Houston and shared his personal connection to the journey of the Wahl Fade It Forward® winners. He expressed, “We read your stories. We know that some applicants are homeless, and they aren’t sure how they are gonna feed their kids. That was me. Barbering changed my life. If it can work for me, it can work for anybody.” Fox emphasized that each recipient should take pride in successfully navigating the rigorous selection process, stating, “The application process is not easy. We dissect every word you say to us, and we research you on social media. We take that into consideration because you all represent Wahl now. You’re one of us. It’s our commitment to you – we are going to be here for you.”

Beyond providing scholarships for barber school, the Wahl Fade It Forward® program offers personalized tutoring to help students pass their state licensing exams. It also connects them with social services if needed. Additionally, the program offers one-on-one mentorships with local professional barbers who are community role models to help students understand how to navigate the business world as a professional. During the mentorship, students learn essential skills such as building a client base, assisting in daily shop operations, and fostering professional relationships with colleagues.

Julie Gustafson, Senior Manager of Marketing at Wahl Professional, commented on the unique aspects of the Wahl Fade It Forward® program, stating, “Giving these students layers of support and mentorship beyond just paying for their barber school education is what makes the Wahl Fade It Forward® program special. Students are paired with barber mentors who teach them how to conduct themselves professionally, how to build their business, and how to ‘Fade It Forward’ to the next person who may need a helping hand like they did, and eventually be a leader in their own barbering community.”

The success of the Wahl Fade It Forward® program serves as a testament to the transformative power of barbering and the dedication of Wahl Professional to invest in the future of aspiring barbers. By providing comprehensive support, mentorship, and scholarships, Wahl Professional is empowering these students to overcome obstacles, achieve their dreams, and become leaders in the barbering community. As the program continues to expand its reach, Wahl Professional remains committed to making a lasting impact and fostering a brighter future for the next generation of barbers.

We meticulously source and trace the origin of every ingredient. In our packaging evolution, we have worked closely with our partners to prioritize eco-conscious materials, utilizing glass jars, recycled plastic lids, water-based inks, and sustainable cardboard for all our boxes.”

Among their remarkable range, the Yuzu Paste (3.53oz / $30.00)stands as a crowning achievement. Uniting the regenerative properties of the yuzu fruit within the meticulous formula, Daimon Barber has produced a hair styling product that delivers exceptional hold and finish. Crafted from a carefully curated blend of natural waxes and oils, including beeswax, kahai nut oil, and yuzu fruit extract, the Yuzu Pasteoffers a strong hold without weighing down the hair.

Male Clients Summer Hair Care Routine & Summer Hair Styling

JIM SHAW, DIRECTOR OF TONI&GUY BILLERICAY AND MULTI AWARD WINNING MEN’S HAIRDRESSER

All year round male clients should be looking after their hair, providing it with TLC and locking in moisture with good quality moisturising products, but particularly in summer when the sun can zap away moisture from their hair. Below are some of my top tips to advise male clients on to keep their hair looking its best during the summer season and information on the must have products they should be investing in!

Scalp Scrub – healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp and clients should use a scalp scrub every week/couple of weeks to ensure their scalp stays in the best condition, free from dryness and flakiness! Using a scalp scrub will also get rid of buildup on their hair and give it a deeper cleanse.

Conditioner – many men miss this step in their haircare routine and if there’s a time to add a conditioner it’s during the summer when we want to retain moisture in our hair. We should encourage our male clients to apply a small amount of conditioner after they shampoo to ensure their hair is kept nourished. If your male clients are heading on holiday, advise them it’s a good idea to invest in a leave in conditioner that they can spray through their hair throughout the day for extra nourishment.

Hair Mask – for added TLC during the summer male clients should use a hair mask on their hair every week/second week. This will prevent  hair from becoming brittle and damaged and instead, keep it soft, shiny and healthy. Recommend to your male clients that they only use the hair mask on their mid-lengths and ends avoiding the roots so as to avoid the hair becoming oily and/or weighed down.

Heat Protection Spray – if your male clients are to invest in any product during the summer, it should be a heat protection spray to ensure their hair is protected from the harsh UV rays!

When it comes to styling your hair in the summer months, less is more. The sun is already causing damage to the hair, and therefore it’s a great time for clients to take a step away from the heated styling tools to avoid further damage being done and instead, embrace natural and effortless hair looks that are so on trend for the season.

Beach/textured waves are a great look for men in the summer, particularly if they already have naturally wavy/curly hair and want to enhance it further. A salt spray can simply be spritzed through damp or dry hair and scrunched in for a ‘just off the beach’ inspired look.

Sleek styles are also incredibly on trend at the minute and as well as creating a more polished look, the products used to create these hairstyles can also give hair an added dose of moisture and hydration. Hair oils, serums and shine sprays are three products that are great for creating sleek styles and these can be distributed with a comb, slicking the hair back off the face or to one side to create a sophisticated and well-groomed finish.

For men with longer hair, ponytails, half updos and buns often make a comeback during the summer season, and they can look incredibly stylish. We are also seeing a more contemporary way to wear this trend with men teaming their man bun/ponytail with a haircut that’s short at the sides and the length kept longer on top. With this look, using a gel/pomade with a soft shine to it will help bring all of the hair out of the face whilst keeping it free from frizz and flyaways for a slick, smooth and shiny finish.
