Finally! The Video You've Been Waiting For...

On November 30, 2014 five women from across the country came to join in on an amazing photo shoot. I've anxiously been waiting to release the women's photos and haircuts but this photo definitely helps in the meantime! 

Featured in the video are mini interviews of Roqkandy, Corina_LadyBarber, Lici_LadyBarber, QueenCutsNRoses, and of course StylistFairy!  Some of these ladies will be at the She's My Barber Battle on January 18th in Oakland, California so don't forget to check them out ahead of time!

The video was filmed and edited by none other than Will Rodriguez at Above The Norm Films who I think has done an amazing job. A big thank you to my amazing sponsor, Always Pro Barbers, photographer Alana Tyler Slutsky, social media expert Tiffany Greenstreet, videographers Will Rodriguez and Erin Yamagata, kick ass assistant Samantha Thomas and Skyla Veltman, booker extraordinaire at Wilhelmina Models Men's Division. 

Enjoy!

Always,
Cassie

ScissorSalute™: Behind the Scenes

This week was an exciting one for Her Chair His Hair primarily because the whole idea behind the site is meeting new barbers while connecting with them on both a professional and personal level. I was generously invited to sit in on this week's airing of the ScissorSalute™ Show which streams on USTREAM.tv Mondays 7:00-9:00 PM EST. To say this group was welcoming would be an understatement; by the time I left I felt like I knew each of them for a long time despite the crazy taping schedule!

The whole crew that you see on Instagram representing ScissorSalute™ was there with a buzz of energy to put on a fantastic show. Sefiroh (@Sefiroh), the creator of the show, Irene (@Newyorican_queen), co-owner, barbers Eli (@Elidabarber), , Ivan, Chauncey (@Chauncey_thebarber), and new addition Nicole Digilio representing Hair Stylists were hilarious and a great group to work with. This week they had Quisqueya Barbershop of Dover, NJ and I actually knew them from high school - talk about a small world! This Monday was a rare one off and I wanted to accept my invitation to see the show so I had no clue that the guys from Quisqueya would be there. Nestor (@Inked_Barber), David (@thefit_barber), Danny (@Danny_stylez91), Domingo (@Sir_Fade_Alot), were all there to show their best work and to answer questions about their career thus far. I know for a fact this shop stays busy!

What I loved most about Monday night was the feeling of collaboration. Every single person in that room was there because they love what they do and they wanted to share it beyond their shop. Male barbers, Lady Barbers, it didn't matter - we were all just talking shop and discussing what we love which, to me, is what this site is all about. I can't wait to be invited back and discuss Her Chair His Hair  more but most importantly, meet many new creatives and hang with the Scissor Salute crew. 

Don't forget to follow these fantastic barbers on Instagram, I've listed their handles next to their names throughout this article. Also, don't forget to catch the ScissorSalute™ Show every Monday 7-9 PM EST on Ustream.com! When you download it, the site will give you a heads up for tuning in the show.

Until next time!
