MAN v FAT talks to the Lions Barber Collective
This month’s webinar saw us chat to Tom Chapman from the Lions Barber Collective, a collective of barbers from around the world who are dedicated to opening up discussion around mental health and suicide prevention in men. Their aim is to encourage customers to chat to their barber, turning barbershops into safe spaces where you can talk through whatever is on your mind without fear of judgement.
Many thanks to Tom for taking time out of his busy schedule to talk to us – it was a really interesting chat, and the collective is doing such great things. They’ve teamed up with The Bluebeard’s Revenge to create a specially branded hair gel with 50p from every tub sold being donated straight back to the charity. The insides of The Bluebeards Revenge cartons have also been rebranded with powerful messages to support The Lions Barber Collective, so it’s an easy way to support them (and keep your hair in check).
Catch up on the webinar below. Also, apologies to Tom for the camera being on him for the entire first half, even through my intro – I clocked that my settings were set to focus purely on him a little too late!
You can find more information about the Lions Barber Collective and the work they do over on their website, where you can also find a handy map of the barbers who have taken part in their #BarberTalk training.
