From the Window…To the Wahl: “Barbershop” Is Back!
Fresh cut by Wahl Education and Artistic Team Member Juan Ramos on the #BarbershopTour.
Wahl Professionals is headed to the big screen—again!—as the official promotional clippers for “Barbershop: The Next Cut”! And they’re helping Calvin (Ice Cube) and Eddie (Cedric the Entertainer) give their clients the freshest cuts.
It’s been more than 10 years since the last film in the “Barbershop” series, and Wahl is celebrating in a big way. The company partnered with Warner Bros. Pictures and MGM Pictures for the #BarbershopTour, hitting six cities across the country before the movie’s release on April 15. The tour showcases a mobile “Barbershop” experience, including free cuts from Wahl Education and Artistic Team Member Juan Ramos and local barbers on board the three-station trailer to perform #YourNextCut. The tour stopped in Chicago, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Dallas, Miami and Philadelphia, and will hit L.A. in early April.
The film features prominent trends that are captivating the industry, such as: the high fade and flattop, dark Caesar, the all-around afro, comb-over with a hard part and comb-over with a mid-shadow fade. Wahl hopes to inspire barbers and stylists and provide a look into the world of haircutting and styling through the big screen.
Like so many “Barbershop” fans, Juan is excited to see the hair culture spotlighted in the film and loves sharing his passion on the #BarbershopTour.
“I get the motivation to perform each cut from my passion,” said Juan. “The passion to do what I do, the passion to stay on top—the passion of a barber doing hair.”
