elcome to a jampacked April issue! I am super excited for you all to read this issue as we have some fantastic stories lined up! This month we want to educate you all on how to use your social media pages to grow your brand and increase your client base. You may use your social media platforms every day, but are you uploading suitable content for your clients? Head over to page 53 for some top tips. Moving away from social media, we focus on the good old days with a little help from the experts. Follow us as we take a stylish step back in time to see which classic trends will be making a comeback this year (one of my favourites this month!). We have also included a sustainability feature, including a unique barbershop that works without any electricity whatsoever! This is a fantastic read which could give you some ideas to reduce your shop’s carbon footprint. Check this out on page 30. We love to hear feedback from you guys so please get in touch to let us know what you liked, and if there is anything you think we should be covering over the next few months. On behalf of myself and the team here at The Barber Magazine, we hope you enjoy this issue and have a great month. Editor
