Our educators Pete Cranfield and Tariq Howes brought their A-games with bite-sized advanced education demonstrations. They both gave deep and meaningful contributions to our career focused Q&A session as well.
Pete is a freelance barber for some of the biggest names in British football. He’s known for his incredible close-cut work using fading expertise and creativity that allows him to work freely on longer styles, proving that modern barbers can enhance their male haircutting game by learning hairdressing skills.
Pete said: “This event couldn’t have gone better. The love I felt in the room was incredible. I’m not sure how the BarberEVO guys did it, but they pulled off the perfect evening and to be a part of it was truly humbling. I’d love to see it grow as a staple event, not just in the UK, but North America, too.”
Celebrated session stylist Tariq has done commercial work with brands like Zara, and on-location for TV shows like Love Island. He was our second BaByliss PRO educator and said: “An intimate setting built for networking and skill, focusing on how we can help each other as a community not just about being on stage showboating. It was about giving people insight to different techniques. Being part of the very first one was a massive privilege, and it was a massive success.”
Paul Taylor Clinch, is the owner of Blacksails Barbershop and an educator for many brands. He said: “Finally! An event by barbers for barbers. A fantastic collaboration with some of the biggest BaByliss PRO artists and the biggest barber mag!”
Barber and videography sensation, Danny Robinson said: “It was a fantastic event. I am very grateful to have been part of it. Tariq is a close friend of mine, so it was great to support him and be part of the team. Pete was absolutely fantastic in his hometown. The haircuts we phenomenal too. Looking forward to future events from EVO!”
