Jayson Tatum Pays Homage to Barbershops with new JT1’s Colorway

Celtics F Jayson Tatum debuted a new colorway for the Jordan Tatum 1s titled “Barbershop,” which draws inspiration for his love of keeping up with his fresh cut. The JT1 “Barbershop” colorway officially releases in April on Nike’s website and in select retailers, but the Celtics forward gave fans a peak of the new shoe recently in a game against the Pacers.

After signing with Jordan in 2019, Tatum finally debuted his first line of signature shoes with the Jumpman brand during 2023 All-Star Weekend, where he wore both the “Zoo” and “Pink Lemonade” colorways in a historic performance during the All-Star Game. The “Barbershop” colorway features a knit-mesh upper in various hues of tan and brown with a black overlay. On both heels is a red Jumpman logo on the shoe’s back straps, which are detailed in red, white, and blue, similar to a barber’s pole you would see outside of a barbershop. The colorway is finished with Tatum’s “JT” logo in gold on both tongues, as well as the shoe’s side. 

A SHOE-IN: In terms of specs, the “Barbershop” colorway is equipped with a reinforced TPU frame and an uncaged Zoom Air unit in red and blue in the midsoles to provide energy return. Other specs includes plate technology in the outsoles that is designed to help with quick transitional movements and supported comfort in the outsoles, making it one of Jordan Brand’s lightest basketball shoes. According to data from Zoomph, Tatum’s social post showcasing the new colorway drew a social value of about $77,000 from close to 2 million impressions online.

Samson’s Haircare Showcases 2023 Men’s Trending Styles

New hairstyles and hair trends for women are easy to find, as they’re always emerging online, in magazines and on celebrities. For men’s trending hairstyles are not always as prominent – and they should be! Men’s hair deserves just as much attention as women’s, and that means delivering not only the hottest hair trends, but the best hair products to support them. 

With the help of Samson’s Haircare, an artisanal men’s hair and beard care range and Ethan De Nolf (@denolf), and barber and owner of DeNolf’s Barbershop, we have identified year’s trending men’s hairstyles. 

Messy Crop: Crop top fades have been increasingly trending! The sharp contrast between buzzed sides and longer hair on the top helps any man make a big style statement. One of the best things about this hairstyle is the versatility, no matter what texture hair a man has. Samson’s Haircare Volumizing Matte Powder (1.4 oz. / $19.00) can help you achieve an unstructured, full yet controlled crop. A few quick sprays will help mattify hair, while providing volume, dimension, and texture. 

Grown Out Curls: Men are embracing their natural texture and growing out curls for more styling versatility. Samson’s Haircare Foster the Curl (5 oz. / $26.00) is perfect for curly and textured hairstyles. It nourishes, defines, and holds curls all day long thanks to its low shine, light hold, protein-packed crème. The name Foster the Curl is representative of Samson Haircare founders, Jake Hamlet and Adam Muncy’s passion and advocacy for the foster care system. A portion of the revenues from Foster the Curl will be donated to Foster the Family to provide self-care products for multicultural children entering the foster care system. 

Modernized Mullet: The ‘80s have made a comeback with the modernized mullet haircut. More and more celebrities – men and women – have been rocking this blast from the past look, and Samson’s Haircare Matte Styling Cream (4 oz. / $19.00) can help elevate this edgy hairstyle. Use it to nourish and hold loose, textured hairstyles, but if you’re feeling a more slicked back, sleek look, you can also use it on your towel dried hair, combing it through, for a firm holding, satin finish. 

All Samson Haircare products are available online at


Largely embedded in the foster care community, Jake and Adam strive to do everything with good intent and purpose, and their character is built within their hard work and dedication to delivering the best hair care products possible.

The Creation of the Captain – Celebrating 13 Years of Top-Class Styling Products with Captain Fawcett

Captain Fawcett has an outstanding brand identity. As well as creating award-winning gentleman’s grooming products, the writing, design and social media have a unique narrative flair, combining British humour and heritage with a contemporary take on what it means to be a gentleman in the 21st century. 

SO, what’s the secret to creating an iconic brand? Captain Fawcett founder, Richie Finney, spilled the beans… 

The journey began, quite literally, with beans! I was using empty baked bean cans (thoroughly washed!) to blend my own Moustache Wax, intended purely for personal use. My wife, Christine Greenwood, an Emmy & BAFTA award-winning hair and make-up artist, took the wax on set. People loved it but I had no sense of any commercial value. I started with 100 jars, little did I know what wonders would follow! 

Richie shared his top 10 tips for building a brand that is memorable and iconic.

1: Be authentic

25 years in the Sound Department of the British Film Industry gave me an understanding of immersive experience. If you believe in a world from the inside out, you can be true to it without affectation. When an actor is immersed in their character, even if they’re improvising off script, they say what their character would say. So, by living your brand, you can’t really go wrong.

2: Deliver superb customer service

When people are delighted, they talk about it and your customers become your cheerleaders. Word of mouth recommendations are of huge value. 

3: Build a trusted team

Early on, you have complete control but when you expand you need some humility. Find people with skills you don’t have, who really get what you’re doing.

4: Be consistent

Reinforce your brand with repeated images and phrases. Create your own catchphrases, such as ‘Keeping A Stiff Upper Lip Regardless’®. With repetition they’ll become widely recognised. Arguably, that familiarity is when a brand starts to become iconic.

5: Collaborate

Instead of paying influencers, work with colleagues and ambassadors who have a vested interest and genuine belief in your brand. It brings integrity to your relationships and helps extend your customer base.

6: Be philosophical

The stronger your brand identity the more polarising it can be. Some people will be attracted, some repelled. You can’t be all things to all men. To thine own self be true.

7: Blend product branding with aesthetic

Your logo, colour palettes, and tone of voice should be recognisably yours. These might evolve so there’s room for poetic licence! But don’t dilute your core storyline.

8: Utilise social media

Barbers are about the shop, the physical experience. So be what you say you are, and deliver what you promise on social media or you’ll be found out. 

Don’t be afraid to share lows as well as highs. Humans buy from other humans. And stick to platforms you can manage, better to show up consistently on one platform than drive yourself crazy creating content for everything. Social media is a tool, not your master.

9: Quality is king

It has to be a top-quality product. Fancy packaging and a terrible product immediately lose trust. Get the product right, then work on beautiful presentation. Share samples with respected experts in your field and earn their genuine endorsement. Again, it’s about conviction and trust.

10: Have fun!

Profit is but a result of your initial and enduring idea. However, it’s never guaranteed, so make sure you enjoy the ride. Money should not be the motivation although, with a combination of hard work, surrounding yourself with excellent people, a pinch of good luck and an element of success, it may well be the consequence.

Final tips?

Enjoy the journey because fuck knows what the destination is.”

Benefitting a change is coming scholarship program, this collaboration highlights one of the industry’s top creators and gives kids support for college & vocational programs.

Andis® Company, a leading manufacturer of barbering and styling tools and education for professional barbers and hair stylists, has joined forces with award-winning barber and educator John Mosley, known professionally as “Popular Nobody,” to launch its most unique collection yet. One of Andis’ leading Global Educators and 2022 NAHA Educator of the Year, John uses his influence to inspire creativity among professionals and this new collaboration, featuring three limited-edition tools, highlights his artistry and encourages others to create their way. 

“Kicking off our Creative Collab Series with John and his Popular Nobody brand is incredibly exciting. Andis is always looking to inspire and encourage others to create their way, so when we spoke with John about the idea of creating a custom clipper with a common vision to support a great cause, we were excited to bring it to life,” said Angie Vlasaty Peterson, Andis VP of Marketing. “We think people will really love what we’ve done with John and B. Clark Customs.”

Branded with the signature Popular Nobody “Atlas” Gorilla logo and a design based on a one-of-a-kind, hand-painted colorway by B. Clark Customs™, this special-edition release includes custom versions of the Master® Cordless Li Clipper, the Cordless Envy® Li Clipper, and the Slimline® Pro Li Trimmer. Each tool for this collaboration was chosen by John with professional creators in mind. It combines some of Andis’ best-selling tools with the imagination and style of the Popular Nobody brand wrapped using fresh, modern colors, and a surprise black light glow design. Tools in the collection include:

Master Cordless Lithium-Ion Clipper

Andis Company’s most popular professional clipper, The Master Cordless, offers high-speed power, constant speed technology, and an adjustable blade for unbeatable precision that make it perfect for skin-tight fades and tapers. With a 90-minute cordless runtime and a durable aluminum housing, the Master Cordless Clipper delivers premier-quality cuts with the aesthetic edge of Popular Nobody style. 

Cordless Envy Li Adjustable Blade Clipper

With 2 hours of cordless runtime on a 90-minute charge, the super lightweight Cordless Envy Adjustable Blade Clipper is designed with the craft in mind. The lightweight design is ideal for smaller hands and for comfortable all-day use. Decked in a unique Popular Nobody colorway, this clipper embodies creative freedom. 

Slimline Pro Li T-Blade Trimmer

A sleek, lightweight profile and extra-sharp carbon-steel T-blade mean this trimmer was built for ultra-close, precision detailing. The Slimline Pro Trimmer boasts an ergonomic design perfect for controlled outlining, designing and touchups on the neckline. Also showcasing the Popular Nobody graphics, this trimmer completes this incredible, artful set of tools. Dedicated to giving back to his community, John has pledged $10,000 of the proceeds from this collaboration to A Change is Coming, a Texas-based 501c non-profit foundation that provides scholarships to Black and Brown youth. Andis will also be making a matching grant of $10,000 through its Andis Foundation to support the group’s work.

Of the donation, John said: “There comes a point in your career where you realize your success wouldn’t have been possible without someone else helping you. As an Andis Global Educator, I have seen how teaching others to be successful makes a difference. This creative collab with Andis is a great expression of artistry and giving back and A Change Is Coming is the perfect partner to benefit from this project.”

Available while supplies last, these limited-edition tools will be sold separately on the Popular Nobody website. To learn more about Andis® Company, follow them on Instagram, TikTok and Facebook. To keep up to date with John Mosely and Popular Nobody, follow him on Instagram

The Industry Take on the 2023 Golden Globes

The Golden Globes was back for 2023 – and after a few years off, we couldn’t wait to see some of the biggest stars in TV and film walk the red carpet.

As the first event of the Hollywood awards season, the Golden Globes doesn’t just hint at who will be taking home the trophies over the coming months, but it also sets the pace for those all-important red-carpet fashion and beauty moments.  The home of some of the most iconic moments in fashion industry, it certainly did not disappoint. Striking the perfect balance of sophistication and dazzle, our favourite stars make us swoon with their fabulous looks.

We caught up with some of our hair industry favourites to get the lowdown on some of the star-studded guest list’s looks, plus top tips for replicating them in the salon.

Golden Globes red carpet reporter Amelia Dimoldenberg looked ultra-glam and blow-dry queen Lisa Carter says: “Amelia’s vintage waves give off a glamorous feel, yet feel slightly more effortless. The way they’ve been dressed out leaving a much softer finish reminds me of the iconic Rita Hayworth. Her hair colour is not only perfect for her skin tone but goes very well with her outfit and really helped to accentuate the look as a whole.”

Barb Mahoney, owner of Leicester’s Do My Hair says: “Amelia is oozing with style. Her sunset copper hair complements her fair complexion, and she sets the look off perfectly with her mermaid waves.”

Bridal specialist Sharon Roberts says ‘I love how Amelia’s colour palette works from top to toe. I feel like her colourist, hair stylist and fashion stylist must have collaborated to ensure a really cohesive look. The dress and hair are not competing for attention – it’s a winner for me and no doubt will be copied by a lot of brides this year.”

Best Musical/Comedy Television Actor winner, Jeremy Allen White, turned heads for all of the right reasons – showing that he scrubs up just as well as outside of the kitchen! 

Lisa says: “Jeremy has embraced his natural texture, and I love that he’s attended such a prolific event with natural curls; it’s refreshing to see men with hair that is a little longer, looser, and in a more natural state – but still giving that groomed look.”

Curl Specialist Tori Kiff adds: “Jeremy has styled his curls back, which opens his face up and shows off his baby blue eyes. By pairing his curls with a tux, he is the perfect combination of styled and smart, with a touch of rugged and relaxed. I hope seeing Jeremy’s curls will encourage more men to embrace theirs.”

The much-loved Jenna Ortega stepped out in sexy, silky, pleated Gucci number – with hair that’s a world away from Wednesday’s trademark black braids.

“Chocolate is the gorgeous undertone I see here,” says Siobhan Haug, salon co-owner at Haug London Haus. “Those bronzed Gucci pleats are a subtle tone-on-tone complement to the warm chocolate nuances within that cool shag haircut. Our in-salon colour portfolio, IGORA Royal by Schwarzkopf Pro, has the most delicious range of chocolate tones on every level, which is perfect for recreating this look. Think coco blondes, velvet brunettes and melted chocolate on a light brown level.”

Also commenting on Best Actor for Motion Picture Drama winner, Austin Butler, Siobhan says: “I love his effortless waves offset with that sharp tux. Nothing says expensive like relaxed hair paired with precision tailoring. Incredible!”

Selena Gomez looked effortlessly elegant in a strapless black gown, paired with a ponytail. Jack Kilpatrick, owner of JKP Hairspa, Whitstable says: “I love this hairstyle on Selena as it looks effortless yet classy. The hair has an undone, lived-in feel with soft texture, which keeps it looking youthful and fun. To create this on a client, I would dry the hair upside down to add volume at the root. I would then put in some loose waves using a wand to create a hint of movement. I’d use my hands rather than a brush to put the hair up into a high ponytail – this prevents it looking too slick and neat. Wrapping a small section of hair around the band elevates it and to finish, I’d add hold and a subtle shine with a light hairspray”.
