Barberette and Open Barbers go worldwide in glossy haircare magazine “The Infringe”
The haircutting hub that is Klara and Grey, set up Open Barbers to offer an alternative to the mainstream hair salons, so that people could get the haircut they wanted in an environment that was welcoming and inclusive regardless of gender or sexuality.
Now business is thriving and there are two salons, plus they have moved into doing events, exhibitions and have apprentices. They're also to feature in The Infringe. Klara Vanova, Barberette said: "It's a great leap forward that mainstream hair care publications are getting in on our act at last."
Filming will take place at both salons at the end of November focusing on hair salons as gendered spaces, and around the theme of hair and it's place in our culture. It will look at how Barberette and Open Barbers present a unique gender-neutral approach to hairdressing.
Klara continued: ‘I am excited to show how proud I am of our amazingly colourful and diverse client base.’
If you haven't checked out Barberette then you should. It offers many types of haircutting (African Caribbean, Asian, Caucasian ) and colouring all in Gender Free pricing fashion!
The salon is also providing training for two 2 apprentices currently – ensuring that the LGBTQI community can learn the trade in a comfortable environment.
