BarberNV 11 Front CoverIt’s Californication time in BarberNV as we head over the pond to catch up with some of the Golden State’s hottest barbering prospects – Pope the Barber, 360Jeezy, and Like a Gentleman.

Meanwhile back home we spoke exclusively with the men newly crowned as the best barbers in Scotland and Britain. It’s another packed edition and hopefully you’ll enjoy reading it and perhaps pick up some knowledge along the way!

The barbering community has been in event mode as they trekked up and down the country for Barber UK, another Great British Barber Bash, the Scottish Hair and Beauty Show, and Barber Connect. We’ve got plenty of news to bring from all the big events, but we’re beginning to look a bit further afield…

BarberSociety Live is set to be the most exciting show of the summer and we’ll be heading out to Amsterdam to cover it in the flesh. Laid back, chilled out, with beers flowing and the barber banter in full swing, it’s a different take on the usual events but with no less barbering expertise on show. Chris Foster, Simon Shaw, Sid Sottung, and our very own Alan Findlay will all be wowing the crowds and you can expect plenty of content from it in the next issue – as long as we don’t over indulge in what Amsterdam has to offer! For now you can check our interview with BarberSociety Live’s founder Marc Van de Hare for more information on why you should be booking your flight.

Sticking with our global theme, our favourite Viking, Hjörtur Scheving, has opened up his very own Fit for Vikings barbershop in Oslo, Norway with some very British influence. It’s looking fantastic and we will be keeping our eye on the very intriguing concept.

One man who helped Hjörtur with advice to get the shop up and running was Tom Chapman and we’re delighted to cover his latest educational course and show off the quality of his students in our Showcase section. It’s great to see so much talent continuing to come through in the industry.

I haven’t even scratched the surface of what’s ahead of you, so dive right in.
