Wahl Professional And Nomad Barber Announce New Series Of Videos
Miguel Gutierrez, better known as the Nomad Barber (@nomadbarber), travels from place to place in search of stories. With help from Wahl Professional, he’ll find plenty more stories as the two have announced an extension to the Nomad Barber web series.
“Miguel is an extremely passionate, hard-working artist,” says Aaron Flick, Senior Marketing Associate, Professional Division, Wahl Clipper Corporation. “His interviews, videography and photography are top notch. More importantly, Miguel is authentic and driven to share with the world the art of barbering.”
The new installments of the Nomad Barber video series will take Miguel to about 20 new locations between now and September of next year.
“I am excited to be documenting (my travels) alongside Wahl and feel like the authentic and genuine family values of Wahl work well with my brand too—it all just feels organic,” says Miguel.
Miguel has been traveling all over the world since 2013, when the first installment was posted to his YouTube channel. Since then, more than 90 videos capturing his journeys and interviews have been added, showing unique perspectives—his, along with barbers from places such as Hong Kong, Chile, Vietnam and Cape Town.
“I hope the stories and struggles people go through in some countries will help viewers realize that they aren’t alone and things could be worse or better for themselves,” says Miguel. “The videos are meant to evoke some emotion as well as being able to relate to the barbers.”
The raw depiction of his adventures has captivated a passionate following, with subscribers, followers and views numbering the millions. And Wahl Professional, seeing the potential in the partnership, has been with him since the start.
“I contacted Wahl as my first point of call a few years back to tell them my plans, we chatted for a while and decided to partner up to help show the world a new side of barbering and they’ve supported me ever since,” says Miguel.
