Barber Battle Tips by @Lici_LadyBarber

Every coast hosts a battle and some battles travel from city to city. With so much competition and so many different judges, how could you possibly know what to do to win? Every barber at some point battles whether early or later in their career but it seems that it's extremely hard to place in most of these events.

Lici_LadyBarber was recently one of THREE judges at the She's My Barber Battle in Oakland, California. With so many fantastic women competing, it was definitely hard to tell who was going to come out on top.

I caught up with Lici after the event and asked what sets a barber apart from the others during the competition? Is it the haircut only? Or the tools they use? Perhaps just sheer luck of doing a better job than they normally do? And she schooled me on the whole situation so we figured it would be a great idea to share this information with everyone. 

Comment below! Have you battled before? Or are you possibly considering it? Has the video helped you understand the process either way? Let us know.
Always,
Cassie

Repost Worthy: It's a Man's Man's World

The other "C" takes us on a journey of what it is like to be a Lady Barber from her perspective. I think many of us can relate to it on a personal and professional level regardless the industry you belong to be it medical, creative or technical. We all belong in someone else's world to a degree at any given point of our careers and this speaks to it extremely well. I will let "C" take it from here....

 

I Am Her

Welcome to my world. Its a man’s world around here sometimes. I am a Master Barber and it has been my pleasure to for the last 13 years to keep the men in my world looking manly.

 The benefit of being a woman in a male dominated field is that I add a certain something. A touch, not unlike the midas type, that keeps them coming back for more and more. My expertise goes beyond basic haircuts and trims. From hair to skin care. From timepieces to sneakers. From classic menswear to street style, that woman’s touch. Thats the finishing touch that they all seek.

Ultimately, I love when a man is dressed and impeccably groomed. Whether he going to formal event, the office, dinner party or just hitting the streets with his people. Well dressed for any occasion is my thing.

So here I am celebrating what I see, what makes sense and looks good. I am sharing what I know. Razors. Shaving oils. Haircuts. Maintaing styles at home, barbershop etiquette[...].
