Q. What is your story as a barber?
A. There are two hairdressers in the family so I have been influenced from a very young age. This was one of the reasons why I decided as a kid that I want to be a hairdresser. Later on it turned out that I had more affinity to cutting men’s hair – this is how I became a barber.
Q. What do you like best about your job?
A. Maybe the way you can completely transform the appearance of a person with a new haircut or a neatly trimmed beard. This “small” change also has a favourable effect on the mood of my clients, and this is what makes me most happy, too.
Q. What inspires you?
A. Similarly to most of us I gain my primary inspiration from online videos related to barbering and of course from the work of my colleagues.
Q. Which is your favourite style?
A. I don’t have one. A mistake often made is when a barber cuts the same shape or style for every client. They can become good at it, of course, but we all know that the same style does not fit everyone because it may not suit the shape of the client’s head.
Q. Tell us something surprising about you!
A. Nothing comes to mind, really… Maybe one thing: back in my apprentice days we visited a home for the mentally and physically handicapped once a week to cut the hair of the patients. Serving them was a very nice feeling and although they did not know it, I received a lot from them in turn. This experience made me see many things in a different light.
