Up next.. style out of hair on top, by #DoYouNaturally.
Maybe i'm trippin, but this is exactly how dudes walking around now. Head full of color!
To each his own, but you looking digital by the head. People come to the barber with a picture of a haircut that they want, but most of the pix are of haircuts with color added.. in spots where no hair is.
Add Instagram filters and you don't really need barber skills. #Barberlife is becoming all smoke and mirrors. | #ClipperBeast
I was blessed and honored to put together my first haircut drive at Roffler in 2011.
With the help of my fellow barbers, clients, and family.. we were able to give away free haircuts and school supplies to the youth of Austin. What a great day and such a great feeling, to see the looks on the face of these kids.
There are so many more kids that need haircut's. How can we do more for them?
I look forward to teaming up with others in the community. Please forward me any and all info, concerning giving back to those who need it.

Here are a few pix..
Start with a simple cut to get him in the groove of receiving haircuts. Some people come in with a 10 month old and want a bald fade. He still has soft spots on his skull, i prefer to start with a clean up for the first cut or first couple of cuts.
Keep it simple starting off.. it will speed up the haircut process, which will make it less of an un-enjoyable experience.
Little kids move a lot, the hair growing across the front-line of his head will usually be the last area of hair to mature.
If he does move a lot, I recommend not lining across the front until he is able to start sitting still. You don't wanna begin pushing that hair back, this early in life just to make your baby look neat.
Techniques that often prove effective -
Bribes| Rewards after haircut. During the haircut, you want to have things to catch his attention, keep his attention, distract him from whats going on with the haircut process...
Practice at home- sit them in a seat, drape them with a towel and pull out a pair of your home clippers. Utilize the bribe system from earlier, turn on clippers and allow them to become familiar with the sound of them, the vibrations. celebrate afterwards with the rewards as if he actually got a cut.
Wave Length: The optimal length of your hair, for your waves to express themselves.
I get a lot of youth and adults asking about waves. There are a lot of factors that go into the wave hairstyle.
· Wave length
· Clean hair/scalp
· Product use
The biggest factor is in your genes. Some of us will never have waves, don’t blame the barber… blame your parents.
For those who do grow waves, I would have to say that maintaining your “Wave Length” is a top priority.
Your neighbors waves might pop more at a shorter length, where as you might need to leave a little more length for your waves to show. Some guys can get one haircut a month, come back to the barber with an afro, get that cut off and have a head full of waves again. The more you can keep your hair around that length, the higher chance of success with waves.
Keeping your hair/scalp clean will allow your hair to grow healthy. Use a quality shampoo and conditioner, followed up with a quality daily moisturizing product more in the lotion/cream consistency. I recommend that you stay away from wave grease/waxes/pomades because they can leave a heavy coating on your hair/scalp & often take several washes to remove.
Start with a softer bristle brush for shorter hair on up to a meduim for longer wave lengths… you probaby won’t need a hard bristled brush unless you’re way past due for a haircut.
