January 18th: "She's My Barber Battle"

"She's My Barber Battle"

All Female Barber Competition and Education

I cannot stress how excited I am for this competition everyone! There will be some amazing ladies battling like HerChairHisHair featured barbers Lady Jae and Corina with Rachel "Roqkandy" Graziano coming to support! Maybe we can get her to battle, too. ;) Of course there will be featured judge Lici_LadyBarber so I cannot wait to catch up with all of these talented women and you should take advantage of meeting them all under the same roof.

Kerry of ShesMyBarber has promised a super competition! From the combover/fade to 15 minute fast fade and freestyle as well it will be a day full of hard work and some fantastic cuts. Competitors are up for gift bags, trophies and cash prizes too! There will also be plenty of education so for all my students and cosmos reading this, I cannot stress how important it will be to attend. Network with your fellow ladies but most importantly walk away with some serious knowledge!

San Francisco Barbers: Esquire Network Sip & Shave

One of the things I have set up is Google Alerts. While it helps me keep on top of new products coming out it also helps me find out about awesome events like Esquire Network's Sip and Shave.

It will be held at the Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco, taking place from August 8-10, 2014. The 'Sip & Shave' will offer festival attendees complimentary shave sessions, specialty cocktails and exclusive access to meet Esquire Network's Jay Larson and Sean Patton from BEST BARS IN AMERICA, and chefs Naomi Pomeroy and Kris Morningstar from KNIFE FIGHT.

"Embodying the genres Esquire Network's programming celebrates, Outside Lands is the perfect balance of music, cocktails and cuisine," said Deena Stern, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Digital for Esquire Network. "Our audience enjoys spending time and sharing experiences with friends. This intimate activation provides the perfect opportunity to sample the Esquire Network brand while connecting with our young, curious and sophisticated audience."

My goal is to always make more connections as a Barber because that's when you set yourself up for future success. I wish I could be there for this event and I urge each of you to go and network (bring business cards, comp cards, anything to promote your work).  Like I mentioned in my previous post How To Make More Money, one of the biggest things you can do is improve your social skills as a Barber. Yes, these people will be shaved by other Barbers but why not approach them and ask what they liked about it? Or if they're looking for a new Barber? Can't hurt to ask a question. Or better yet, ask these Barbers how they were contacted to work this event for Esquire Network, that can't hurt either!

Have fun for me and check back Thursday 11 AM EST. See you then!

Warmest wishes,
