New year, new you! Moving into 2022 and it’s time to look ahead to see what trends are coming our way. We speak to the biggest names in the industry to find out what they predict for 2022, the styles (the mullet is back, baby!), the techniques, the brands and the color services they are already working with, and how barbers are trend setters in their own right.
Speaking of trends, color is one that is quickly becoming a staple in the barbershop chair. @PapiBlendzz talks to us about his urban color work and how even before it was trending, he was all over coloring his clients with his distinctive creations. @Los Cut It also shows us his latest color work, these guys know how to rock those vidid colors, and we also have a step by step by @CJDaBarber.

It’s what this business is all about, haircare. The aftercare is the expert advice that your clients expect to get from you. We speak to Gabriel Quinones, @GQfromgqcuts who works with Johnny B products. He has an incredible knowledge of the products he uses and knows exactly how to cocktail the range to suits his clients perfectly.
