PROJECT MEN HEADED TO THE HOME OF WAHL HQ FOR A DAY WITH SIMON SHAW GLOBAL ARTISTIC DIRECTOR & THE TEAM AT WAHL.

The day started off with a guided tour of the home of Wahl UK.  Simon took the team through the history of the brand to its current day.  Then it was all things clippers!  Joining the team was the Fellowship’s Spotlight Award Winner Yasemin Hassan (junior barber & Joe & Co, in London) & the Concept Hair Barber Level 3 2022 Winner.

 

George Smith comments: “I for the first time ever did a full haircut with a set of clippers and I loved it. It really opened my eyes to come away from hairdressing and that there is much more too it. To jump back into the traditional barbering techniques was so interesting and I just loved it! Best day yet…so far!”

 

Janene Hawkins comments: “The day kicked off with an amazing tour of the Wahl establishment, meeting all team members that were working, then onto the academy where a lesson on maintenance of Clippers was given.  Then we completed two hair cuts the Rocker and a low mushroom fade, Mic Damiano lots of help given where required.  Embedding skills throughout the day. Great hospitality from Wahl.”

 

Roisin Murphy added: “I absolutely loved the day at Wahl headquarters. It was really great to see the history behind the brand. We started with some demos then we recreated the look straight after. Overall, the day was really insightful to learn about the brand and the barbering industry.  I felt I’ve come away with new knowledge to using different clippers. It was a lovely day with the Project men team as always.”

 

Yasemin Hassan comments: “Highlight for me was actually seeing the history of Wahl and the innovation.  There were three parts to the training, I loved how hands on it was and creating looks with equipment I haven’t used before.  One thing for me which I thought was incredible, especially because I love working with long hair, was using a Wahl Clippers to create a long hair look. I loved learning about the different equipment. Simon was great with the demonstration, and I loved creating the long hair look using clippers which is something I definitely want to experiment with a model at Joe and Co!!! It was fun learning new techniques to fading and brushing up on barbering essentials like clipper over comb and clipper over comb.
