A step by Step Tutorial On How Remove Man Weave By Adrin The Barber

 

A quick and simple tutorial for you today – and an essential for any barber who wants to learn how to apply a man weave safely and effectively. Once you’ve mastered the art of creating a man weave, you also need to be able to remove one properly. Don’t forget to check out Adrin’s video for how to do a man weave/brush wave too. 

 Step one: Start by having your client sit with their head back. Place a towel over their face, covering their eyes.  

Step two: Wearing rubber gloves, spray rubbing alcohol over the whole weave until the entire unit is saturated. 

Step three: Take a fine-tooth comb and start gently pulling back the hair. Go gently and gradually: it should come off quite easily, and your client shouldn’t feel much discomfort. Be sure to check in with them throughout the process so that you can make sure you’re not causing any pain.  

Step four: Use the rubbing alcohol and comb to scrape off any remaining glue and hair from the scalp. 

Step five: Give the scalp a good shampoo to get rid of any leftover adhesive. You can also use a small head massager to get rid of any small flakes of glue that might be leftover. 

 It’s that simple! Make sure that you understand how to remove the hair as well as how to affix it before you start performing this style for your clients. That will ensure that you’re prepared to give them the full service that they may need! This is a very simple process to master and can really help you to upskill as a barber. Good luck: don’t forget to subscribe to Adrin’s Youtube channel as well as mine WWW.BARBERS.TV for more educational videos that will help you learn and refresh your skills.

How to man weave, brush weave hair on a male clients head – performed by Adrin The Barber

One popular trend that barbers need to be on top of is the man weave. Also known as ‘brush waves’, this is a hair replacement strategy that takes a little time to master but is easy once you know what to do. Whether you’re not sure where to start or you want to enhance your skills, this tutorial is for you! Here are the step by step instructions to help you give your clients excellent man weaves/brush waves. Follow these steps and, with a bit of practice, you can make sure that customers leave your barbershop with a smile!  

What you will need 

There are a few bits of equipment to gather before you start:  

  • An eyeliner pencil 
  • Thin electrical tape  
  • Skin protector 
  • Glue  
  • A wig cap 
  • A hairdryer 

… and, of course, the hair itself! Once you have all of that ready, you can dive straight in. 

 

Step one: Cut the existing hair 

You can really do any haircut that your client asks for at this point, but it’s important to think about what will look good with the weave. Since you’re going to be laying synthetic hair on top of the hair, you won’t be able to cut it any further once you’ve applied the weave. This means that it’s important to guide your client towards a cut that they will be happy with. A mid/high fade tends to work quite well.  

Step two: Mark the hairline 

If your client still has some of their natural hairline then you can use this as a guide. Otherwise, spend some time discussing where they would like the hairline to be. Once you have agreed, mark the line with your eyeliner pencil. Usually, the hairline will have receded to the point that you have to draw this from scratch, but if there is still a natural line to use for guidance it can speed up the process.  

Step three: Prepare the top of the head 

Shave the top of the head. Start at the ‘hairline’ you have drawn, and then move out across the rest of the head, creating a horseshoe shaped line around the skull. Keep this straight all the way around, as the aim is to create a natural looking hairline. Any inconsistency here will make the hair appear lopsided at the end, so make sure your cut is smooth and neat.  

Next, clean the scalp using rubbing alcohol. Make sure your cover the entire scalp, and then apply skin protector. This needs to go anywhere that’s going to have glue – which means you should put it over the whole scalp. Finally, wash off the eyeliner ‘hairline’ until it is only faintly visible, and then place electrical tape along the line.  

Step four: Add glue 

Add glue to the scalp. With the first layer of glue, you don’t need to go all the way to the hairline. Spread it out all over the head and then either let it air dry or use a dryer to speed up the process. Wait until the first layer is completely dry and then add a second layer.  The second layer of glue needs to go all the way to the hairline: apply it in the same way, spreading with a brush. It’s fine to get some of the glue onto the hair at the sides, and if you accidently get glue past the hairline at the front then you can use an old pair of shears to carefully wipe it off.  

Step five: Attach the hair 

Once the glue has started to dry – it should become clear and slightly tacky – it is ready for you to attach the hair. Take one strand at a time and carefully stretch the hair out just a little to create a natural wave formation. Take care to lay it precisely across the head, from front to back, and press gently but firmly into the glue. Lay the middle strand first, and then work out towards one side. It’s important to ensure that all the waves you place are consistent with one and other, as this will ensure that the hair looks natural.   

If necessary, you can place a wave over the natural hair too to make sure that the transition is natural. Once you’ve finished one side, you can go back to the centre and work in the other direction. Again, it is important to make sure that every wave is uniform. Stretching the curls out just the right amount and then laying them in a consistent way can take a bit of practice – so use a mannequin first until you an get it right every time.  

Once you’ve got the practice, this process should only take around ten minutes. It really doesn’t have to be that time consuming! When all the hair is laid, you can trim off the loose ends from the front and back of the head.  

Step six: Dry the hair 

Start by pressing all of the hair into the scalp firmly with the palm of your hand. Then, apply the hairdryer for a few minutes before placing a wig cap over the top of hair. Let the client sit for around ten minutes with the cap over their hair, blow dry over the top for around five minutes, and then let it sit for another ten minutes. This compresses the hair into the glue to help it stick. When you’re done, use scissors to remove the cap when it’s done rather than simply pulling it off your head.  

Step seven: Style 

Use an old pair of clippers that you don’t mind snagging to go over the hair and make it look as natural as possible. As you go over it, you’ll see that the hair starts to blend well with the natural hair and stops looking false. Take the edges down a little bit shorter to help the sides properly. At this stage, take your time – it takes a lot of work to get this far, so you should make sure that you don’t mess it up in the final stages.  

 

Ultimately, practice makes perfect with this kind of style. Put the time in working on a mannequin, and you’ll have the confidence when it comes to actually styling a real client. This is a great thing to master, because it can really transform a person’s look. Let me know how you get on, and don’t forget to subscribe to Adrin’s Youtube channel for new straightforward barbering tutorials or visit my website http://www.larrythebarberman.com for all thing barbering

DL Master Barber’s Straight Talking Interview, For The Greater Financial Good Of Young Barbers

Celebrity barber and motivational speaker DL Master Barber is on a mission to make sure that young barbers do the right thing, treat their customers right and ultimately treat their barbershops as what they are: a business. I’m very happy to be amplifying that message for barbers across the world.  

DL hasn’t necessarily had an easy ride to the top: his barbering career saw him earn a lot of money, and then it saw him lose a lot of money. Thanks to this experience, he’s now able to give barbers the jolt of energy that they need to do things differently: 

“When me and my mother came up from Ohio, she had no plan – but she had a purpose, which was to change my life. She just wanted more opportunity for me. Like a lot of us, I graduated from the school of hard knocks. I just wanted something different, to change the financial situation for me and my mother.  

“This made me so passionate about becoming a barber. I didn’t know this passion would move me into a different space and time. Jheri curls came out and barbershops were closing because they weren’t making the transition. And then Hip Hop came along, and the rap artists all had to come to Hollywood and sign their record deals. I was cutting off the Jheri curls and giving them flat tops.  

“So, I end up doing a lot of the New York rappers because they would talk, they’d say there’s this kid who’s nice with the clippers. That catapulted me into meeting more and more rappers. We were having fun, I was cutting hair. I was going to the hotel not knowing who I was cutting because they didn’t have their faces on the album covers.” 

Then ‘Yo! MTV Raps’ started showing music videos and live performances, and everything changed: rappers needed an image to go with their words and beats. DL had already built up the credibility needed to position himself as someone who could help rappers define this style. 

“It changed my life. It changed their life. They needed barbers to create these unique styles for them. Thus, me meeting Tupac Shakur.”  

 

It’s not hard to see, then, how DL was able to create so much success for himself at a very early stage for his career, and it’s hard not to picture him out there living the dream. But it’s not always to cling onto that wealth, especially when you’re young, and barbers can learn as much from the mistakes as from the successes: 

“At the age of 19 I opened up my first shop. At the age of 21 I became a multimillionaire. By the age of 23 I had lost all the money. I didn’t understand how money worked. I knew how to create the money, but I didn’t understand taxes or how to invest the money. I was spending more than I was bringing in. If you don’t know how to deal with your money, you’re gonna lose your money. 60% – 80% of all barbers and hair stylists retire broke, because we don’t understand how money works.” 

The experience of learning this the hard way has made DL determined to give other barbers the education that he missed out on. Helping others in the industry learn how to build their career in the right way has become one of the driving forces in his life. 

“I’m not just speaking it, I’m a living example of it. I want barbers to understand that this is our craft: it’s not just about putting hair on the floor or going to trade shows.” 

As the barbering industry has grown, many more opportunities have opened up. This makes it easier for barbers to network with each other and learn from one and other. But alongside this comes the empty hype, and DL cautions against barbers who turn up at shows or follow their favourite stars on Instagram without actually learning anything. He also warns barbers that trying to copy the work of an inspirational figure isn’t the way to achieve success: you have to be original and find what works for you.  

So how can barbers make this happen? Well, one way is to create standards. “This is what barbers need. Some barbershops have it – a standard of how they do business. You raise your income by raising your value.” Another way is to rectify the mistakes that you’re making. I asked DL to describe the biggest mistake he sees, and explain how it can be fixed: 

“That’s easy. The biggest mistake is education. You have to be educated. You have to be motivated, inspired and empowered to educate yourself. Most barbers want to put hair on the floor but don’t want to educate themselves. Most barbers stay in their neighbourhood, in their shop and think they know everything. If you want to be the best, then you have to educate yourself.” 

And DL is taking a proactive approach in changing this, too – producing content, including books, that barbers can use to educate themselves. These focus on helping barbers create a lifestyle that allows you to save money without struggling. Check out the book, ‘Pocket Game – The Art of Saving Without Saving’ to get all of the secrets. Designed to fit in your back pocket, you can keep this book on hand and get to the wisdom inside when you need it most.  

If you’re not in the mood for reading, then DL also offers mentoring and training sessions where barbers can get. “I did something very different this time: I came up with this idea called the situation room. Wherever I went, I decided to have four barbers come to my room with two problems and came up with a strategic plan to help them overcome these problems. Because a lot of the time, these shows are so big you don’t get the help you really need.  

“I also have a mentoring programme. That’s a six-week course helping people get to their goals. You want to be a platform artist, compete in shows, work with celebrities… that’s what I’ve been doing for twenty+ years. I want to educate, inspire and empower barbers and stylists.” 

 

I’m sure that this video has given you a lot to think about! Perhaps the biggest takeaway is the need to be financially competent as well as good with the clippers to make it as a master barber.  

I think it’s crucial that we bring DL Master Barber to the UK so that British barbers get a chance to learn some of his secrets. I’m going to work hard to help make that happen so that we can get DL on stage, but before that happens, here are the final thoughts that he wants to leave you with: 

“I want you to live your dreams. I want you to stay focused. I want you to believe that you can do what you want to do when you want to do it. There’s an old saying that says ‘if you do what you ought to do, when you ought to do it, then there’ll come a time can do what you want to do when you want to do it.  

“All you’ve got to do is find your ‘it’. And once you find it, what are you going to do with it? Who do you need to bring in to get it? And once you get it, what are you going to do with it? You are a priceless original, so be the best that you can be. And listen to guys like Larry, who are bringing information right into your phone!”

Times Of Paul Taylor Clinch While At Schorem Barbier Rotterdam 2017

Rotterdam’s Schorem Barbier has become an infamous destination for barbers who want to embrace the crazier side of the industry. I was very interested to speak to the British barber Paul Taylor Clinch to find out how he ended up joining their gang – and what it’s really like to work there.  

“Like a lot of people, I was a huge fan. I followed their work online for about two years: as soon as they started doing videos I was watching them on the way to work to feel inspired through the day. I liked their work ethic: work hard, play hard.  

“One day they posted something in Dutch and I was naturally curious. It was basically saying that they were offering a position. Anyone who has seen their documentary will know that Demon Daan got his job there by writing an email that basically said, ‘I’m the guy you’re looking for.’ I wrote my CV, and thought I’d see if lightning can strike in the same place twice. So, it was a professional CV, but at the end I added ‘I’m the guy you’re looking for.’“ 

It clearly resonated, because almost immediately Schorem were in touch to say that they wanted to fly Paul out for a trial. Nervous but excited, Paul jumped on a flight and left to meet his heroes. Once there he spent the day at the shop watching them operate and waiting for his chance to impress with his cutting skills:  

“When it was my turn to do my two models, Rob and Leen came in. And because it was the end of the day, I had the whole team sat on the waiting bench watching. I kid you not, Rob was just sat in the middle leaning forward and squinting at me. Rob checked one side of my cut and Leen checked the other. Luckily they offered me the job there and then.” 

I doubt that luck had much to do with it. Schorem are committed to finding excellent barbers who can maintain their quality. Part of working their means learning to execute 12 specific cuts: these are the looks that Schorem clients expect to walk away with. 

“I was getting into pomps, but I had no idea how the guys at the shop did it. It’s really nice that we all train together: even though we cut what’s on the posters, and that’s one of the golden rules, everyone has different strengths within that. It’s so amazing that we can keep learning off each other.” 

The guys behind Schorem have managed to create a family atmosphere within their crew, and within the barbering community they’re known almost as much for their hijinks as for their cuts. It didn’t take Paul long to realise what he’d gotten into: 

“My first day I got picked up from the airport and Rob said we’re going to do a photo shoot. I thought okay, probably for the website, like a mugshot. I get there, and Gio is pretty much naked, holding some playing cards to cover himself. So I think, this is going to be a weird photo shoot. Rob says to me, ‘we need you to get naked’. I took my shirt off and he says no – naked.” So barbers who want to join the Schorem team can certainly expect a baptism by fire! 

 

A lot of barbers back home in the UK long to jump on a plane and start working at a shop like Schorem. But is it really that different to the traditional shops that we have here?  

“I think the beauty of it is doing the classic haircuts. In England it started to slow down a bit, people were chopping off the pomps. The classic cuts suit everyone. At the shop now, we only do what’s on our posters. So, I get to do the cuts that I love every day. It’s also amazing to learn while I’m there. Rob especially shares his knowledge so openly and so freely.” 

Aside from the cuts themselves, there’s also something special about the boys that Rob recruits to be on his team. “You have to be a little bit loopy to work there. I love the fact that at Schorem, as opposed to a traditional shop, we face away from the mirror. It reminds people that they’re not just there for a haircut, and it also means that we can all talk together throughout the day.” 

“After we’ve done the last cut of the day, we’ll spend an hour just cleaning up with a beer. We like to chill out at the shop: people will pop in just for a beer and a chat. It’s so much more of a hang out. It’s brilliant because when I’m not in the shop I only hear Dutch speech – I have no idea what’s going on around me!” 

Finding a shop that feels more like a family is a great way to make sure that you’re career in barbering is fulfilling; not everyone can work with the barber at Schorem, but anyone can foster this atmosphere in their own shop. I hope Paul’s account inspires you – for more interesting interviews, don’t forget to follow Larry the Barber Man on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.
