My God I love food. I LOVE the taste of junk food but I find if I eat it at work, the cuts I do after lunch need SO much focus because all I want to do is sleep. (And some lunch breaks, I do sleep for ten minutes…) Make the effort to eat as clean as you can. Your cuts will thank you for it.

A wonderful tip: Pour your neat Barbicide in after the water and mix. The other way makes many bubbles. Many bubbles. Like a pint with far too much head. This is the only time when too much head is tedious.
Happy Cutting With Poor Innuendoes!

Sunday morning. It should go without saying, but; Take care of yourself because no one else will. I think there is tremendous freedom in that statement alone.

Had such an inspiring day yesterday in London at Salon Smart put on by Creative Head Magazine. Proud to say that the brains behind Ruffians Barbers, Andrew Cannon, had a solo slot on stage to talk through key points in starting a brand from scratch. From what I gathered, it was the first time barbering had ever been talked about on that stage. And there will be more. A lot more. Happy Cutting!

Don’t stop until you’re proud of it.
