hbad Thank you so much to my brother down under for sending this package over. @tommi_dyde worked at #HBADHQ for a year whilst visiting the UK and Europe from Australia. Not only did he carry the torch back but went on to open his own shop specialising in gentleman's barbering and custom women's work, and came up with one of the best shop names I'm ever heard. Huge S/O to Tom, give this top boy and his shop a follow.

hbad IF YOU HAVE A SPARE FIVE MINUTES PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING OPEN LETTER:

I get asked two questions very regularly so I thought in light of the opening of the Epicly Taper’d Barbershop I would clear a few things up.
The two questions are ‘So you cut girls hair right?’ and the one that I get asked the most by girls is ‘Why is there nowhere available for girls that is as cool as what is now available for guys?’ To answer the first question, yes I do. Although the last five years of my career has been devoted to barbering and the renaissance of the craft my background is in hairdressing.
What pains me now is seeing a beautiful craft falling by the wayside in favour of the resurgence of barbering and barbershops. There are a lot of incredibly talented people out there who have an amazing skill set that are either burying their professional past, or concealing some of the work that they do daily in favour of the one that is currently enjoying the popularity and media/social media hype. I know this because I was one of them. I feared that showing the other side of my work would undermine my credibility as a barber, and as I am deeply in love with my trade that would have upset me greatly. Unfortunately this has also had a negative effect as I am usually very open in all aspects of my life and I allowed the greater social media environment start governing my decisions.

hbad 16 years in, day after day, always working on those fades. After spending the weekend with some of the barbers I have admired for years it has been so fun to apply everything I watched and learned from them. The thing I love most about this job is you never stop progressing and there is always something new to learn.

  •   oran_jan @hbad could you give me some advice on scissors? I'm currently using DMI 7inch, japenese steel. Not sure what I should be looking for other than Japenese Steel. 5d
  •   hbad Japanese is right on the money. Don't be afraid to invest in good scissors. By far the most important part of your kit. @oran_jan 5d
  •   oran_jan @hbad thanks again, I'll do my best to look around and get something worth while. 5d

hbad Another one that has been along time in the making. Finally in the chair with my homie @shanenesbitt at the weekend. This man is the John Cardiel of barbering. Hands down one of the most gifted, and humble guys I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. #barberlifeexpo #brighton #brightontattooconvention #aono #aonofamily #hbad #shanesbarbershop #harrybladesandangrydaves #epiclytaperdbarbershop #internationalbrotherhood #idgt #idontgettired #toosoon #notsoonenough 7d
