With this being our 20th edition the BarberNV team would like to take a moment to thank anyone who has helped us get to this point. Everyone we have featured, interviewed, showcased, and of course to all our readers — old and new. 

So, it’s a massive thank you from everyone on the BarberNV team. And to add to that we recently won the Salutation Award at the Fellowship for British Hairdressing luncheon. Thank you to everyone who has made these milestones possible.  

Continuing with our series on mental health in barbering, we talked to Lions Barber Collective founder, Tom Chapman about his work and why barbers hold a privileged place in society. Expanding this we’re also looking into the history of beards and their relationship with masculinity, as well as a comeback of an old favourite — the mullet.   

We give our rundown of the International Barber Awards, as well as a fantastic first-hand account from third place winner, Kipp Evans. Back in the UK, we visited the launch of the fantastic new Jacks of London, World of Golf London site.  

And of course, as it is the season, we’ve got our Christmas Gift Guide in case you’re stuck for ideas! As well as all the usual features, news, and products you’d come to expect from us.  

Looking forward to 2019 we aim to push the quality of BarberNV even further — to deliver new and exciting content from across the globe.
