Once again my blog comes from the lobby of an airport. This time Dubai. I have been here with the BBA for 4 days representing British barbering at the middle eastern beauty show, the biggest of its kind in this part of the world. I was fascinated to see the diversity in culture and lifestyle and to learn about different views and aspects of our global barbering community. During our time here we played host the BBA UAE best shave competition and BBA UAE best barber competition which was a massive success! The level of work produced was exceptional and the range of skills and techniques used mind blowing. It really excites me to be apart of an industry which is growing at an experiential rate, not just in the UK, but all over the world. Dubai has a growing market in barbering and in particular the male grooming side, with spa's and salon's offer a huge range of services within high end beautiful salons. We also had the pleasure of being able to work for the very first time with the brand new BBA HAIR & SKIN CARE range, an expertly constructed range to cover all aspects of cutting and shaving. Having the opportunity to come to Dubai has been a phenomenal experience and working alongside renowned educators, Chris Foster, Erik Lander and Gary Machin has been a pleasure as always. The BBA is heading in an exciting direction and offering all us British barbers the opportunity to experience these places and cultures. Salons and barbershops over here are crying out for British barbering talent!
If you are interested in working abroad and using your talent to travel get in touch and you could be out here sooner then you think!
Time to get back to the barbershop!
