I’ve been fielding a ton of questions about my decision to enroll in barber school and temporarily relocate to London.
I figured it might be worth my while to write out a quick FAQ as a way of addressing the main queries, so here goes:
Q: Barber school? RANDOM!
A: Yeah, I know. It’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while. I started cutting dude hair for fun in high school/college and have been doing it here and there ever since. I figured I might as well learn how to do it properly.
Q: Why in London?
A: I researched a bunch of barbering courses on the internetz; the one I chose was by far the highest quality training course and best fit for me in every way. The fact that it’s based in London was part of the allure– the London barber scene is having a moment right now, and it’s broadly recognized as THE culture to emulate at shops across the globe, in places as far-flung as Singapore, Dubai and Australia. Might as well learn from the best, right?
Q: What about your producing career?
A: I haven’t decided yet. I came to London/barber school with the intention of jumping back into producing when I return to Los Angeles. BUT, I’m having so much fun in barber school that I will leave the door open to that career path as well. In a perfect world, I could produce great projects AND play with hair all day. We’ll see how everything shakes down over the next few months…
Q: Which city do you like better, Los Angeles or London?
A: To be determined…
