The Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s Barber Project enjoyed a day of education at The Master Barber’s Shop in Southport. Owners Dan and Robert Rix gave the team a brief history of shaving over the years before providing shaving and model demonstrations for the team members to replicate.
Barber Project member Sarah Morrissey said: “I learnt some new tips on how I could improve my technique and get a closer shave. Now, I feel totally confident and am going to expand our male grooming services in the salon, and start promoting wet shaving and beard services. I’m also going to train some team members up in the beard services.”
Beards and shaving are big business, with more male clients opting for facial hair as it becomes more commonplace and commercial than ever. According to research by YouGov, some 42% of men now wear facial hair, with 44% of those surveyed choosing a full beard.
