MEET CALLUM

Barber + Blow recently expanded into 1Rebel Broadgate and has expanded its Barber team with the addition of Callum. We sat down with Callum to discuss what makes him a Rebel of the barbering world...

 

How long have you worked at Barber + Blow?

I'm about to start my second week!

What attracted you to the role?

The concept and atmosphere is spot on at B+B, as well as the opportunity to learn and work around Ben, someone who I definitely look up to in the barber industry. 

How long have you worked with hair? 

I picked up scissors for the first time in January 2016 at LSB and finished the course July so I'm pretty new to the industry. 

What is your favourite part of working at Barber + Blow? 

The atmosphere, the B+B staff, the 1Rebel team and of course the clients.

What is your favourite current hair trend?

Has to be a zero fade, textured to with a blunt fringe but I really want mod cuts to come back in - I love that style!

What is your least favourite hair trend of all time? 

Dreadlocks.

Who is your celebrity hair crush?

Alex Turner, from the early days through to his current style.

Who (dead or alive) would you most want in your chair?

Jimi Hendrix.

Who (dead or alive) would you least want in your chair?

Sol Campbell (I'm a Spurs fan).

What conversation path will you lead us down?

Depends on the person... It sounds cliched, because barbers always ask "any holidays booked?" but I'm always interested about travel and people's experiences/the culture in different cities or their home country.

Where do you find hair inspo?

@Staygold31, @therealjimmyq (not a barber but his cuts and style inspire me), @kevinluchmun and finally @ldn_brbr.

Be sure to introduce yourself to Callum in studio and book yourself in for an appointment.
