Dubai. A truly sensational city, somewhere that needs to be seen to be believed. It was great to head over there and pop into Chaps

The industry in Dubai is expanding rapidly and it won’t be long before they’re creating some real waves on the international scene. So read on to find out about some of our favourite shops in the desert jewel. From Vancouver, Canada, we’re delighted to highlight the work of the Street Thug Barbers who have given up their Sundays every week to help the local homeless community in one of the most deprived areas in the country. Closer to home we have spoken with two top barber training schools right here in BarberNV’s home city of Glasgow. Mohair and Rebel Rebel have long been two of the city’s best known barbershops and now with Mohair’s own academy up and running and Rebel Rebel linking up with Glasgow Kelvin College to offer courses in modern barbering, the health of the industry here has never looked brighter. If you’ve been looking for tips on how to earn more engagement on Instagram with your cut pictures, then look no further. Top barbering photographer Dave Brown has given us his top tips, or if you want to really impress and get your work in BNV, hire him for a professional photoshoot – you won’t regret it!
