We get around… Everyman Barbers has shops in Birmingham, Bristol, Nottingham, Leicester, Derby and Solihull. Owner and MD Noel Gilronan tells us all about it…
veryman Barbers is a place a man can feel at home in, and where comfort is finally on par with convenience - and with enough floor space to rival that of most traditional women’s salons, we have finally given a space to men where they can get all of their grooming needs met under one roof. We have also chosen great locations in major cities, with cheltenham and Manchester being our next locations for later this year. We’ve kept many elements of a traditional barber shop and modernised certain aspects to suit the needs of men today, with Everyman bespoke classic leather barbers’ chairs, and bespoke oak cutting stations Evola Heritage o finished with blackened steel tops and proper ceramic wash basins. All of our stores have full drinks licences so customers can grab a cold beer or cider, or a fresh coffee from our new freshly ground coffee machines
- both hot and cold drinks are self service. Then there’s our Everyman Media, a combination of free wifi, gaming stations, and non-stop rolling live sports. Did we mention our Everycam? With a simple click a client can check how busy we are in each of our stores before they visit, or if they are time conscious they can book an appointment via our website. At Everyman we ensure that all customers receive quality over quantity, which starts with us having a team of vastly experienced talented barbers who are regularly trained and educated in the latest techniques, who deliver people to people service with honest advice and proper barber banter. our talented barbers begin with a thorough consultation before the haircut starts.

The Theradome® LH80 PRO Laser Helmet uses Laser Phototherapy (also known as Low-Level Laser Light Therapy) to stimulate weak hair follicles and provide them with targeted laser energy. This increases microcirculation, bringing nutrients and oxygen to stimulate hair growth and to stop or slow hair loss. Laser phototherapy also stimulates keratin production leading to better quality hair and thicker strands. Visit theradomeforhairloss.co.uk for full details

Brand stand Becoming a product ambassador is on the bucket list for many barbers and hairdressers, but is it all it seems? How do you become one and what does it entail?
lter Ego Italy has two uK ambassadors, who tell us how it has helped their career, and the opportunities available. “My relationship with Alter Ego Italy happened very organically,” explained Pete Burkill, Alter Ego Italy uK creative Ambassador. “They sent me some products to try and use on my editorial work. This happens quite a lot and I’m usually sceptical of trying new products in such a pressured environment. But these products really drew me in. I loved the smell, the packaging and the ethos of the company.” Pete started to use the products on shoots and shows, and credited them in publications.
“The relationship grew from there,” he said. “As well as using the products they were keen to use my background in education and thought I would be a good fit for what the brand stands for. “I have worked with many brands over the years but loved the fact that I was given an opportunity to work with a brand that is new and fresh in the uK without any preconceptions. I wasn’t looking to be a brand ambassador but this gave me the opportunity to work with a former colleague, Issie churcher, and to be involved in the direction of the company was an exciting proposition.” Issie churcher, uK colour Ambassador for Alter Ego, told us that if someone asks you to be a brand ambassador you have to believe in what they offer. “There are certain things I look for before I’ll commit and you need to make sure they are the company for you,” she said. “I’m looking for a high performance in the colour as well as the care range. I like
to work creatively so I look at a colour range like an artists’ palette. I was sent products and colours to play with and was impressed with the results so knew I wanted to help them grow in the uK. You have to believe what you are working with – I want to be true to my word when talking to clients or the press about what I can achieve and how it helps with my work. “Being a brand ambassador should be a two-way relationship; not only do they want you to help promote their products, but they should also open doors for you to meeting other industry professionals, sparking new relationships and introducing you to more creatives. Everyone’s journey is different but being an ambassador can certainly point you in directions you’d never dreamed possible!” For more information on Alter ego italy products visit sweetsquared. com/spotlight-on-alterego
Pete’s toP tiPs:
issie’s toP tiPs: • choose a brand you believe in; not just the products but the brand ethos and philosophy. • Have as much involvement as you want; working with a smaller brand will offer more opportunities to have a say in direction, collections, shows or shoots. • Be true to yourself, don’t get swayed by a big fee or session work. Work with a brand you are proud to talk about.
52 | THEBARBERMAGAZINE.co.uK
• Money is important and to commit solely to one brand it has to be worth your while. Know your worth and don’t jump into something for the glory of a title. • You have to believe in what the brand and products stand for, you don’t want to feel like a fraud when talking about them. • It’s a two-way relationship and demands attention and respect from both sides.

he Movember Foundation, in association with Rugby League Cares, launched a burly Man Van built to get rugby league fans feeling excited (and better equipped) to care for their health. The van boasts a trophy room, rugby league memorabilia, a suite of barbers for haircuts and shaves - and of course the opportunity to learn about the importance of men’s health. Run primarily by Rugby League Cares along with the crew at the Movember Foundation, between May and November of this year, the van is visiting a long list of major rugby league events and club matches, encouraging men to take pride in their health - just like rugby legends do. Many of the towns and cities the Man

Van will visit are areas facing serious health challenges - including lower than average life expectancies and higher than average rates of cancer and heart disease. The Movember Foundation has the fantastic support of Barber B and his team from Piranha Hair Studio & Academy. Barber B has worked with Rugby League Cares to support explayers re-train to become barbers, and has got involved in the project recognising the importance of men’s health and the role barbers can play. His team have completed Movember’s online Movember Rated Barber training and joined the global community of barbers who proactively use the power of conversation that happen in the barber’s chair to improve the health of men.

To start with, m y business partner steve Rowbottom an d myself put in an awful lot of time and research to ensure that our business mod el was efficient and able to demon strate to pote ntial franchisees th at Westrow is a great and viable op tion. We observed quite quickly that our strateg y needed to be transferable, so that it could operate in mult iple locations, using the same syste m, brand and quality. As a key point in this, the fra nchise model also ne eded to be te achable and believable ; there really is little point havin Barber B is a long-time supporter of training those that want to take up barbering as a profession, and getting men to talk about the importance of men’s health issues. With his Barbering Academy (P.B.A.) he has been handing out information about the issues surrounding men’s health, together with the Movember Foundation, and Rugby League Cares. “Our aim is to create awareness to help reduce the rate of men dying early,” he said. “Many causes of these deaths could have been prevented. Getting men to take notice of their health and fitness will help our lads stay healthier and live longer.” To find out more about Barber B please visit barberb.co.uk.
“Partnering with Rugby League Cares on this initiative allows us to deliver a fun experience for rugby fans that can also save lives,” said Owen Sharp, CEO at the Movember Foundation. If you’re interested in joining the global community of barbers read more about it at movemberratedbarbers. com, and to donate or learn more about Movember, please visit movember.com.
The Movember Foundation has one goal: to stop men dying too young. As the only global charity tackling men’s health issues year-round, the foundation supports the following causes: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Since 2003, the support of more than 5 million men and women has funded over 1,200 innovative projects across 20 countries.
