Dieuwertje Barber Interview

With palm trees waving in the cool Californian ocean breeze behind us, I sat down in the warm sunshine with Dieuwertje. Malibu Beach was the perfect setting to get this interview going and find out the story behind Dieuwertje’s success as a barber.

 

Finishing high school, Dieuwertje had a million ideas for her future. She wanted to do a bit of everything, with dreams of being a Marine to running a beauty salon. Essentially, she didn’t really know what she wanted to do. Inspired by her mom who ran a beauty company, Dieuwertje went to study beauty with an attitude of nonchalance but dedication to her studies nonetheless. After two years of study in the beauty industry, Dieuwertje started dabbling around hairdressing. She spent much of her time from morning to evening, even on school holidays, learning about hair styling and using toy dolls as her models. Dieuwertje progressed in her career with a very relaxed attitude, telling me that she thought along the way that “why not, everybody can learn doing haircuts”.

 

As we chat more, I start to ask Dieuwertje about her interest in barbering specifically. It started on a bit of a whim, when she was doing hairdressing mixed for both guys and girls. Many clients would come to her asking if she cuts beards. Her response at first was that she could, but she just didn’t have the tools for it. This was no real obstacle for Dieuwertje however, laughing as she says she “just Googled it” to find out how to barber. Her interest grew more and more in barbering and eventually Dieuwertje just decided “I want to open a barber shop”. She didn’t care too much about the doubtful questions from onlookers wondering just how she was going to start a barber shop. Dieuwertje started off small, setting up a men’s corner in her mom’s beauty salon, and refining her barbering techniques here.

 

Barbering was a refreshing change for Dieuwertje. While she simultaneously still cut and coloured women’s hair, she enjoyed the chilled out vibe with the guys. Rather than listening to the typical gossip and relationship problems that women tend to spill out at the hairdresser, Dieuwertje felt more comfortable doing guys hair. She invested a lot of time in education and interest in developing new techniques.

 

Dieuwertje never really expected barbering to take her around the world, but that’s exactly what it has done. She started entering competitions and competed in five last year. She started at the Spanish Barbering Competition and going to other countries around Europe such as The Netherlands and Britain. Her talents even took her the Barber Shop Connect, a prestigious competition where a nomination meant a lot to her. All this barbering experience and skills is a real credit to Dieuwertje – especially for someone who is only 22 years old! Not to mention the impressive fact that she is self-taught as well – this is just another reason that I felt like I was talking to a 35 year old during this interview.

 

Her youth is certainly just another motivating factor. Deiuwertje demonstrated to me again how motivated she was, speaking of goals she wanted to tick off her bucket list, with travel being a huge part of this. Dieuwrtje is clearly interested in barbering for the right reasons. She tells me honestly that to her it isn’t “about awards or always being the best”, but rather just self-improvement and being the best she can be at something she loves.

 

Dieuwertje is clever in how she combines her formal education and her life learning together. Her accumulative life experience and awesome attitude make her a great teacher as well. She runs education courses for other aspiring barbers. In these, she explains step-by-step hair cutting processes and shares her top tricks and techniques. Dieuwertje’s vast experience in barbering and approachable personality make these educational course highly effective.

 

Being on the younger side means that the realm of social media isn’t intimidating for Dieuwertje. She knows what hashtags to use on her instagram account and knows the right people to follow. Dieuwertje also acts an ambassador for big companies, helping to give herself a good name as well as boosting the business of companies on her Facebook.

 

A real unique character in the barbering industry and an inspiring one at that, chatting to Dieuwertje was really motivating. Seeing how someone so young can achieve so much with the right type of attitude and dedication is refreshing to see.

Celebrity Barber Kenny Duncan Shares His Barbering Story

 

Today, I sit down with Kenny Duncan, the Andis educator and barber extraordinaire, to get his story and insight into the barbering industry. Naturally, we start at his humble beginnings. “Just being honest,” Kenny explains, “I really didn’t want to be a barber. I just told all of my friends that I was going to cut hair to get me through college. When I started cutting hair early on, because I grew up poor, I went to the barbershop, and my mom gave me a twenty dollar bill. The barber charged me two additional dollars for my mustache, and she was under the impression that I took that two dollars and went to the game store or candy store and spent her money – she was really upset, and even called the barbershop, where the barber confirmed the price. From that point on, I had to do my own mustache with a pair of cordless trimmers from then on.”

Kenny spent his high school years cutting his own hair, and beginning to cut for others as well. “It started off with me telling everyone the first time was free. I charged four dollars for an outline and seven dollars for a haircut. My grandma’s second-floor front bedroom turned into my mini-barbershop.” Kenny believes the relationships one makes as a barber can make their life much richer, and it shows. Kenny has been traveling with Lady Gaga’s tour the last four years. “I get paid to travel the world,” he admits, “—all because of what I did with a pair of clippers.” This year, he’ll be ready to tour the world again with Janet Jackson.

 

Of course, traveling with celebrities isn’t the only thing Kenny keeps himself busy with. Asked about some of his other projects, he tells me, “We just finished up with the IBS trade show in New York today. I’m the lead educator with the Andis Clipper Company, and we had an amazing time – broke some sales records when it came to our tools, and had some great educational classes. This weekend as well is an event called Barbercon, where I just won the award for Educator of the Year.” Kenny has won not only that, but the Andis fame and respect within the industry where he strives to change the public opinion on urban barbers.

 

One would imagine that Kenny would be away from his shop constantly with so much traveling. I ask him how much time he actually does spend on the floor. “I actually balance out how I am going to do the tours – I don’t stay on the tours, but traditionally, I’ll go three days. For instance, I’ll be in the city for three days, work six hours, and then I’ll get to enjoy the city.”

 

As for his greatest moment in barbering, Kenny answers, “I don’t think it’s one, bro, that’s the crazy thing. I think each and every year, I look to have a decent experience in life, and it just so happens to be that barbering has been the means on how things have happened for me.”

Kenny is also known to have created quite a following on Instagram. Asked on how he gained his 60,000 plus followers, he tells me, “They’re family. I don’t like to put my name in lights. Instead of making the proverbial pie by myself, I’d rather figure out who is in my circle that can make a great crust or filling. I just want to be the person that presents the pie that sells to the masses.”

“If there’s anything I would like to say, is that I like to continue to associate myself with other brands, to figure out how we can partner up, so we can all end up achieving the goals we want to achieve and utilize the platform we have to have balance in life. Even this year, starting in April, I’ll be the artistic director with PP Education Center. I have a direct relationship with the Reserva an Online Appointment booking system – I’m a brand ambassador with them. I recently also became part of the Layrite brand of barbers. I’m associated with a product called Exotics, which has a traveling boutique barber trade show, and a barber competition, called the Hair Metal Tour.” Talk about barber brotherhood and life!

 

Kenny next talks about his likes and dislikes when it comes to the barbering industry. “I love that social media has put barbering on a new platform, and has shrunk the world. Many different relationships between barbers are also starting to form – there’s a lot of barber love. Barbering is a universal language that everyone speaks. We speak different languages, sure, but when you see someone with a pair of clippers in their hands, you know exactly what they’re trying to achieve and can appreciate it.”

On the flip side, Kenny brings up his dislikes and they are very similar to issues that many barbers I’ve spoken with have claimed. “Social media allows for unqualified, unjustified individuals to pretend they have credibility in a particular topic without any kind of validation or proof to back it up. Case and point: there are individuals who are very popular, but they don’t make a lot of money cutting hair in their barbershops. They sometimes have 200,000 followers on Instagram and suddenly they look like a barber god”.

 

For fans of Kenny, and his work, I of course have to ask him when his Youtube channel is coming. “I am my own biggest critic,” he admits. “Continue to follow kennyduncan.com and you’ll see the announcements when the Youtube channel is set to launch.”

 

I ask him about how he landed his gig on the Rocky movie, “Creed”. Kenny responds how he became well known through his Andis education as well as his relationships with other barbers. “A few years back, I was teaching a class in Atlanta and I met a guy named Wyatt Belton. He was a barber for “The Hunger Games” and he came to me to learn some tips on barbering. Since that day, we’ve been cool. Wyatt was good friends with someone who turned out to be a close friend of Michael B. Jordan, who was hired to be one of the lead actors in the movie. It was a challenge, for sure.”

 

As well as his longstanding career as an educator, barber and semi-celebrity, Kenny also has a range of products he offers to the barbering community. Asked about them, he tells me, “A few years back, I started aggressively focusing on combs. There was just not a good range of combs available in the market, and I wanted to fill the void. Through partnerships, and through relationships I had built over the years, we came up with the idea of creating a cutting comb collection; six different combs with a wide range from a barber taper comb to a flat top comb. They’re all made with quality materials that are heat resistant, and can even be styled with. I also have a series of different wooden razor holders because I became a fan of the Feather razor holder, but the Feather DX razor that I was using was a three-hundred dollar razor. I love it, but I know a lot of barbers that can’t afford it. This was a project I’ve been entered into now for at least a year and a half – I know good things are going to come out it.”

 

Kenny doesn’t know what the future holds exactly, but one thing is clear: he is going to keep living the barber life and dream, building relationships with barbers all around the world and bringing that barbering unity that the industry could really use more of.

Harry Green Gentlemans Barbers Shop: Harry and Rhy Talk Barbering

Double the trouble, double the skill – this time, I sit down with Harry and Rhys of Harry Greens Gentlemans Barbershop in Maldon, to talk to them about their journeys in the barbering industry. Harry started young: from a young age, the barbering industry seemed cool to him every time he went to a local barbershop and in general. “I came out of college when I was eighteen and had nothing lined up,” Harry explains. “My old man sorted out a job for me with a local shop and from there I just kept on moving forward. I went to school to do women’s hair, but it didn’t really click with me, so I sank back into barbering and there you go.”

 

Rhys, funnily enough, began his journey when Harry initially setup shop. He came in to work as an apprentice to Harry when he was turning twenty-four and stuck in a job he hated. “I saw how passionate Harry was about the industry and got in as an apprentice. From there, we’ve had the shop ready within a year and have been building it up collectively.” The true story of two partners in crime!

 

Harry and Rhys both are noted, and praised for, their styling. With an Instagram filled with examples of their work, the two have gained quite a following, especially for newcomers. When asked about their styles, both answer that they take the traditional and give it an urban twist. Clean fades and lines is one example, and the two styles mesh up almost exactly due to Harry’s training. “Doing a bit of women’s hair helped a lot with the techniques,” Harry explains. “We also get loads of inspiration from people like J Fades, amongst others when it comes to styling – you’ve got to stay on top of your game, and learning from other people is a must in the industry.”

 

Both gentlemen take improvement seriously. Harry talks about how he sees going to shows such as the Great British Barber Bash to be a fantastic way to stay on top of his game, as well as network. He and Rhys agree that they are always picking up new information, new techniques at shows, and it does a fantastic job in keeping their styles more than up to standards.

As big as shows are for the both of them, they unsurprisingly quote their greatest moments in barbering as both happening at the Great British Barber Bash: Harry for making it to the final round in the competition and Rhys for all the people who told them how he and Harry inspired them.

 

It is no surprise with all of that in mind that the fantastic duo has plans in the pipeworks for future education opportunities. Harry talks about possibly doing one day workshops or seminars in order to pass on what they have learned to interested parties. “We’ve had people approach us and ask about training and education, and Rhys and I really see ourselves getting more into it in the new year. I think a lot of people could benefit from us doing training courses, and the feedback on the idea has been amazing thus far.” You heard it here, folks, so keep your eyes peeled!

 

Tom Chapman was another person who approached Harry and Rhys, though this time it was not about training, per se. Instead, he wanted them to come aboard the Lion’s Barber Collective, a group of barbers that is based on recognizing mental illness and suicide in young men and helping to understand and prevent it. Harry tells me that there are plans to eventually push it over to the states and claims that it will be an absolutely massive thing in 2016 – another thing to keep an eye on, folks.

 

Given that Instagram has done an amazing job of showcasing their talent, neither of them have a lot of complaints on the platform. “You can’t show off the whole haircut in the picture is a fault, I suppose,” Harry laughs. Rhys is a bit more to the point: “There’s a lot of people who are ready to criticize our work when they don’t have any of their own posted. Its fine, of course, we are here to be criticized, but it is something that can become annoying at times when it’s non-constructive.”

 

On the opposite side, neither of them have a complaint for American clippers. In fact, both of them are exceptionally happy that they have had the chance to experiment with the clippers and hope that they begin to come to the UK more in the coming year. “It’s definitely improved my performance,” Harry admits. “There’s just so much more variety when it comes to American clippers, motors, blades, all of that. If we could get anything more out of UK barbers, we’d definitely want to see more variety!” They advise other barbers out there to definitely give American clippers a go.

Speaking of products, Harry and Rhys comment that they do have their own product line, namely beard oil and salt sprays that are currently in shop only. However, they do have mockups for future t-shirts posted on their Instagram and they are thinking of taking their products to an online shop in the future; 2016 is going to be an interesting year for these two!

 

As for where Harry and Rhys see themselves in the future, it is with big plans in mind: more barber shows and chances to be involved with them as well as getting their plans on educating other up and comers into full swing. As said earlier, 2016 is sure to be an interesting year for this dynamic duo and I, like many others, cannot wait to see what Harry Greens Gentlemans Barbershop does next!

Barbers: Greg And Lawrence of Gregory Max Barbers talk Barbering

Today, I sit down with Greg and Lawrence of Gregory Max Barbers – a small shop that has an open front to it and the walk-in traffic is massive.There is local market opposite the shop and people across the country also come to this shop and they become regular customers as well.
Motivation is what derived Greg from becoming a barber at the age of thirteen. Greg remembers his school days and says, “We weren’t the richest kids, so our father contributed in making me and my siblings stand out – my dad thought he was a barber himself”, he smiles. He started off by practicing on his brother’s hair as well as his friends, and then he got a job in an Italian-Asian barber shop. Greg joined another barber shop and worked there for six years.
Lawrence, on the other hand, is also a self-taught barber who started working in 1997. He started his practice from home and went on to do a few jobs that polished his skills. When Greg offered him a job, he eventually accepted.
When asked if both Greg and Lawrence were self-taught, Greg answered by saying “Definitely. I liked to think it’s one of the best ways to pick up your own kind of pace, your own style, which is very keen nowadays. A lot of people have got their own style. You have got the Irish lads that have their one set of very clean style. I have got my own style and Lawrence has his. Being in a small shop we bounce off each other and we do pick up on styles of each other as well”.
Asking Greg how he would distinguish his shop from other barber shops and why someone might come to Gregory Max Barbers shop, Greg answered that the time he put into the haircut and the time the shop is open, which is eleven to twelve hours a day is what makes the shop stand out. Furthermore, he added that he took 45 minutes to one hour in a customer’s haircut, which allows for more time to interact personally with them.
What about the styles they could do? Lawrence responded by saying “Probably more urban kind of styles.” Greg added Afro, Caribbean and skin fade-styles. Greg admitted that he and Lawrence did the short styles and they were not comfortable with long hair so the other barbers in the shop deal with that. “We stay away from long hair”, Greg added.
Marketing is essential for a business to thrive so I asked Greg his primary source of marketing. “I’ve got a website, Facebook, Instagram. Instagram is the greatest thing really.I would say it got me where I am.” He answered. Instagram played a big role in Lawrence’s life too as he revealed that through the power of Instagram he would be going to his family in Hong Kong and start working in a well-renowned barbershop.
Greg carries his own product named GMB as well. When asked about it, Greg explained that it stands for Gregory Max Barber. “We use sprays for the minute – we tend to use a massive amount for the youngsters and customers with long hair. We use it as a pre-blow drying product and it has gotten very popular”.
With so much going on, do these two barber brothers have time for contributing to education? Greg responded by saying that they do a bit of education in a Bletchley college. He added that students come to him, and ask him questions so he explains what he does and how his fellow barbers do it. “We do tutorials for them in term of business” he tells me. “Some students even come out to the front of the shop and peer in at times!” He laughs; it’s hard not to laugh with him.
During the interview, Greg revealed that they also does charity for the homeless and for the people who suffer from depression as well as other serious mental illnesses. Motivation and years of hard work have earned Greg two shops and wanting to open more are on his list.
According to Greg, opening Gregory Max Barbers is the greatest thing that he did and the fact that both his shops are going well is an achievement to Greg.However, Lawrence reveals that he once had his own shop too. “I was a bit too young to have it”, he says smiling, “But really the opportunity to work with amazing barbers I have picked up really from all of them you know. I have progressed”.
I inquired about the negatives in barbering that they would like to see changed to which they shared a knowing smile. According to Lawrence, everyone wants to get on the top. “I don’t like it when people hate on each other and try to maybe undermine people”. Indeed, many barbers have addressed the negative, and outright hateful, comments that show up on social media when their work is displayed as of late.
Another subject of long-standing debate is education and licensing for barbers. I asked them whether it is important to go to college and to be a registered barber: Greg personally thought that new barbers should go to college and learn barbering and the background on how to open a shop before they move on to their own.
Getting on the topic of tools I asked them why they had more American tools in their shop, Lawrence replied, “It definitely has upped the game having American tools”.When I asked him since when did he start using them to which Lawrence laughed and joked ‘Since I got Instagram”.Greg admitted he uses English tools as well as American tools. Nothing wrong with missing the American clipper train if you get on later, right?

These barber brothers are doing phenomenal work and are another standing example of how far the barbering community and spirit behind the “barber life” has come. As more talented individuals like them contribute to education the up-and-comers, I can only imagine the exciting possibilities on the horizon.

Barbering Educator: Vishal of VBD Education, Talks Barbering

Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care – a quote from Teddy Roosevelt that is also used by VBD Education creator, Vishal Baharani.

Vishal got his start as a barber when he was twenty-one years old, but like many other greats, did not have much of an interest in barbering or hairdressing. His early life was actually filled more with music, such as playing the cello – it would be his love for music that would coincidentally transition from musical art to visual art in the way of his styles, cuts and love for the barber life.

 

Noticeably, Vishal also wears quite a few tattoos and has several members in his family that are dedicated tattoo artists, and he wears his tattoos with pride. “A friend gave me my first tattoo at fifteen years of age – they’re a reflection of my journey, a temple to hold all of my values.” He points out a few and explains them to me: “Familia is family, there is “Love” here,” he then points to his forehead, “and this is Sanskrit. It means “love and be loved”. It is clear that tattoos play a huge role in his style and life. His clippers even come decorated with tattoos; his signature, of sorts.

 

Going through his education and training to become a barber, he would also discover his love for education. “Education is the most important thing for a person to have. Education is the difference between humans and animals, it plays a big part in how we treat people,” he explains. Vishal also elaborates that he did seminars in school for other students while attending. From there, he tells me, he knew that teaching was an absolute must in his life and that decision would ultimately lead to the academy that has changed thousands of lives, VBD Education.

 

VBD Education has done tours throughout Europe, and has plans on heading to Argentina as well as the states at some point in the near future. After experiencing a seminar for myself, I can definitely see what so many students have been getting out of it. He tells me that a big influence on how he works was the fact that he was trained by people from the United States in barbering. In fact, he expresses that he thinks it is the best country for the idea of barber life, and his choice in clippers clearly reflects that sentiment! Wielding his Oster Model 10 and a Wahl Five Senior typically, Vishal laughs and admits, “I can use European clippers, but I just don’t like to. Comparing them to the American models, you can see a big difference and it just feels more natural.”

 

During the seminar I attended, Vishal was kind enough to do his demonstrations alongside Paul Hewitt, AONO and Shane Nesbitt, Shane’s Barber Shop, using the Frequency 60hz to power his American clippers in the Spanish academy. “My experience was quite good. Technology can adapt any kind of clipper to my journeys, and it’s something I can use to keep delivering classic haircuts”. He’s equally pleased about Paul and Shane being on board, commenting on how excited he is that they think similarly to him and hold a lot of the same values. “It’s about the message, not the messenger,” Vishal states. “I want to get out there and spread these ideas and values of barber life and having Shane and Paul on board has just taken it to an all new level”.

 

So, what words does he impart with for people who might on the fence about attending a VBD Education seminar or master class? “We reassure signing on by showing that you can come to a VBD seminar, and it will open up a new way to see what barbering really is: the values, history, etc., so you can feel more confident. Passion for barbering, when you have knowledge, you have options, when you have options, you can choose “. From a man who balances a keen understanding of barbering, fashion and trends, the value in attendance is evident. One of the biggest advantage that is often raved about is how Vishal teaches not only the right skills and mindset a barber should have, but also brings in fashion as a way to help them see the perspective of the customer and how to reach them on a meaningful level.

 

If anyone is on the fence, you shouldn’t be. With Shane and Paul on hand, Vishal’s VBD Education tour is aiming to reach more people than ever and bring about a great new sense of what it means to be part of the barber life.
