Interview: Callum Marks, Brand Ambassador for The Bluebeards Revenge

Tuesday, 10 July 2018 09:19

The Bluebeards Revenge, provider of a range of barbershop quality grooming products Real Men,  announces the appointment of  Callum Marks as its latest brand ambassador. 

Influencer Callum is manager of Luka's Barbers in Plymouth and a devotee of the brand. "Callum has supported our brand for years and always shows enthusiasm towards our products, ideas and achievements,” explains The Bluebeards Revenge's Head of Content, Bradley Wicks. “He is a barber that is packed with potential and is ready to take the industry by storm. All of the above are qualities that we look for in the barbers that we work with – we want ambassadors that are genuinely proud to use our products and proud to be a part of our ambitions."

Callum has given his first interview in which he talks about his passion for men's grooming and barbering and his new role for The Bluebeards Revenge:

How long have you been a barber?

Callum Marks: "I've been barbering for about six and a half years now. I started off by walking into to a barbershop that I'd never been to before. By the time the barber had finished my haircut I had been offered a job! My passion for the industry eventually saw me managing the place before I joined Luka's Barbers."

What are your favourite styles to cut?

“My favourite styles at the moment are high and tight pomps with super texured quiffs. You also can't beat a classic slick-back pompadour."

Who inspires you in the barber industry?

"The first barber to really make an impact for me was Donnie Hawley, the owner of Layrite. He was the complete opposite to the image I had in my mind of a 'classic barber'. I'd never experienced anything like him in Plymouth growing up as a kid. All we had was grumpy old blokes that never talked and put combs full of gel through your hair. Nowadays, I'm blessed to work alongside some incredibly talented barbers at Luka's - they keep me motivated every day."

What is your favourite product from The Bluebeards Revenge and why?

"Without doubt it's the Sea Salt Spray. It's amazing. Not only does it make creating volume and texture easy, but it smells unreal too!"

What does it mean to you to become an ambassador for The Bluebeards Revenge?

"This is a huge deal for me! I started working with the company about four years ago doing the odd photo shoot and trialing the odd product. I've always used the shaving products too - at home and on the shop floor. To see this company grow to the industry giant it is now is brilliant. To be backed by a home-town company that I've watched grow, bring out great products, support local and international barbering education, and even link up with charities is unreal! It feels great to be part of it already."

What's your best piece of advice to barbers?

"Keep pushing yourself. Every day is a chance to push yourself a little harder that the day before. It's great to have barbers that you look up to, but don't judge your work only by their standards, especially if you're new to it all. Also, make the most of social media, its free advertising! It's also a great way to connect with people that are doing the same thing, and find inspiration for your cuts too."

What's your best piece of advice to men at home that want to look after themselves more?

"To spend a little more time on themselves. Guys come in wanting huge, defined styles but only want to 'chuck a little bit of clay' in their hair in the morning. It takes no time at all to blow dry your hair and use a little of the right product. And if you're not sure how to style your hair like your barber does, simply ask them. Most barbers will be happy to run through it all as they do it with you and recommend the best products for your hair type and style."
