Another day has come and gone. But it was like no other day for those who attended Uomo’s Professional Shaving Workshop.
We had another sold-out class, with eager professionals wanting to learn the craft of straight razor shaving. It is always so rewarding to me to be able to share what I have learned over twenty years in the beauty and barbering industry. This is what professionals need to do. Pass on their knowledge to enhance our industry standards. I encourage all professionals who have something to share to get out there and give back to the industry that has given us all so much. It is our duty and responsibility to be ambassadors of our trade!
Today, we had people from Nanaimo and the Sunshine Coast as well as Victoria come and join us in a six hour intensive workshop. They all walked away with the understanding of the very foundation of an ancient craft. They learned the 14 shaving areas of the face, the four main strokes in shaving as well as OM proprietary terminology such as the 4 T’s. They are a mental checklist that every barber needs to do before they start shaving. It ensures accuracy and comfort for the client.
Everyone had a chance to work with live models (gulp!) and they are performed admirably. I think the next generation of shavers walked out of my store today, and I am very proud of them.
Thank you everyone who attended, and I wish you all the best of luck in your shaving endeavors!
