Launch of The Barber Project 2019

As the men’s hairdressing industry continues to grow and flourish, The Fellowship for British Hairdressing is celebrating all things men’s hair with the launch of its Barber Project for 2019.

The Fellowship is renowned for its projects, which provide education, exposure and opportunities for its members. This year, the Barber Project was introduced to help hairdressers develop their skills with male clients, and combine the worlds of men’s hairdressing and barbering skills. The first day of the project was headed up by team mentor Edward Hemmings, supported by Matt Gavin from Ruffians Barbershop. Edward gave the team an overview of the year ahead, as well as explaining the importance of men’s hairdressing and why the Barber Project was launched – to raise standards, and build awareness. 

Then, it was over to Matt to talk about his career to date and how he personally had transformed his role from a hairdresser to barber. He then provided a demonstration on a model, showcasing some barbering techniques for the team to try in their own hands-on session. They were tasked with creating a long haircut inspired by Matt’s model, before taking it shorter with the skills they learnt in the morning. “It’s really exciting to be part of the first Barber Project team,” commented Sarah Morrissey from Sarai Hair & Beauty. “I enjoyed everything about the day. Listening to Matt's career story to date, in particular his transition from hairdresser to barber, was so inspiring – as was watching him work, and taking skills like cutting a graduated bob and making it work for men’s hair.”
