BARBEREVO UK AND IRELAND #31 – OUT NOW
FROM ECO BARBERS TO ENVIABLE CHAIRS
The latest issue of BarberEVO UK and Ireland is OUT NOW. This issue is packed full of advice, features and trends to keep you up to date with what’s current.
There’s no mistaking the quiet confidence the RUGER . team are radiating from the front cover. The barbers may be female in an industry that is still very male dominated, but they are making their own statement through their work, and we are delighted to be able to showcase their latest collection.
Also, BarberEVO in collaboration with Wahl UK are buzzing to announce the chance to win a money-can’t-buy competition that will give you a full day’s mentorship with one of the members of the Wahl Artistic Team. Check out entry details on pages 46-47. It’s not to be missed.
Joining us for the first time as a columnist is BaByliss ambassador Pete Cranfield, he has a wealth of information to share from his two decades in the business and he opens up with some advice on how to prolong your clippers and trimmers rather than replacing them, in the name of sustainability.
Every client wants to feel like they are sitting on the Rolls Royce of barber chairs, but every barber has their own view of what that chair is. We have spoken to those that go for the classic, the vintage, the refurbished… all still amazing chairs that add a particular aesthetic to the barbershop as well as giving your client the comfort they deserve.
The question is now why be sustainable, it’s why not be sustainable? The excuses no longer hold weight with so many eco options available. Coterie Barbershop and Noose & Key are just two barbershops that are flying the eco flag in every way. They have found solutions to every challenge, and we tip our hat to the effort they have put in for a more sustainable industry.
With unlimited inspiration online, and advances in trimmers and tools, the talent in hair art has never been bigger. For some barbers, a fade is a fade, but for others, it is a blank canvas for patterns, designs, and masterpieces. We spoke to some of the UK’s finest hair artists about their inspiration, the tools they need to create those sharp lines and the trends they are seeing rolling back around.
