02 Oct Hairdressing taken to another level with men’s barbering
Working in the busy west island of Montreal for 4 years I have built a large male clientele. Increasing my offered services and bettering my knowledge and skills is always my goal in the salon and when the opportunity of adding the luxury of a hot towel shave to my offered services, I jumped on board! Learning and incorporating the use of a straight blade has opened my mind to the vast creative possibilities for work in men’s hair. It has added a more refined and upscale look to all of my haircuts, and has inspired me to treat all of my men’s haircuts as an art rather than just a service.
With beards and different styles of facial hair being in fashion this year, the professional barber shave really is for everybody. Wether you are a suit-and-tie, clean-shave kind of guy, or wear a beard and maintain it yourself at home with electric trimmers and disposable razors, a hot shave is both practical and luxurious, not to mention intensely relaxing.
For six weeks, twice a week I took a course here in Montreal where they have taught me how to:
- finish my haircuts with a straight blade instead of a machine, which makes for a much cleaner neckline and hairline
- do a full hot towel shave
- perfect my fades and blends
I am very excited that ColorTown has sent me on this course and I am anxious to grow my career and awake my creative side for men’s cuts!
Hot towel and cappuccino anyone?
