Master Barber Transforms a Traveler from New Zealand's Style

come on in tom is it Tom or Tommy Tommy Tommy welcome thank you you've come all the way over from New Zealand and I have yeah okay are you travelling around Europe yeah I've got um 2-year visas from New Zealand this is my second year here and yeah I'm really excited to be here there's pretty cool place cool so tell us what we're gonna do well I'm looking to cut this locks a bit short so maybe kind of the same estar but just kind of quite a bit shorter yeah so maybe like short on the sides a little bit longer on the top but nothing nothing too major okay yeah you want to see the ears or not yeah yes see this I think so we can cut it maybe cut it short up and over the ear taper in the back but still keeping some softness and length through the top yeah some curl through there yeah so if it's sort of came in like that yeah would that be too short yeah no that looks fun so you want quite quite a lot off then really yeah yeah yeah wait we can go we can go we go full well it I'm going money I'm growing mine about yeah yes yes perfectly what about the beard even anything was a bit I've ain't just a tidy up like maybe along the neat car yeah clean it up clean it yeah freshen it up make it look a bit sharper you got a good pistach coming in on there so yeah so I'm think I might keep that would look cool I think maybe we could take her the beard in a little bit more and then accentuate the moustache a little bit that would be cool yeah really man let's do that I'm not gonna we do you're not going to use clippers on it it doesn't need clippers it's gonna look a bit I need it to look a bit softer said what would do is with damp it down first Tommy and then we'll get started so tell me about all your adventures well we've been traveling around did you go around the Europe or do you just come straight to the UK when it came straight to the UK and we found some work on the Isles of Scilly just off corner yeah I'll just sit here yeah working at a hotel there which was yeah it was pretty interesting experience I worked there for about seven months and then with the money we saved up we travelled around um like Germany and Prague and although for a little bit Christmas markets yeah checking those out it was pretty sweet eh and then you came back here for Christmas and this year with the money we saved up we're just kind of doing a bunch of um work ways are they here in England or around Europe yeah yeah bought ourselves a Chiron's yeah that's kind of traveling around nice yeah so you've looked are you vlogging this or plug in this or not bothering kind of doing like a photo of the day yeah what Instagram it or yeah Instagram Facebook kind of both yeah but we're kind of doing it um one we kind of switch days to like I do one day she'll do the next day and then so on and so on no cool that's her team have you got you got a good following or family not you're not trying to sort of make like a living out of it or anything like that or now it's more fun just more fun here okay so I'm gonna we're gonna start the back Tommy and in between chatting to you I'm gonna sort of talk about what I'm doing for the purpose of Carlos being here we've got a we've got to try and make it look like there's a point to him being here your point to his existence the initial cut that we're going to do with the scissors it's going to determine how short we go with this haircut as you can see it gives me an it gives me the graduation that I'm looking for when I cut in at this angle so picking it up I can see my last section I'm just gonna come down and then I'll leave all this soft here because I don't want Tommy's hair to look literally like he's just stepped out of a a barber shop I went to look a little bit soft and a little bit grown out still looking because that sort of like his vibe am i right Tommy yeah that's one he's got like that grown out vibe at the moment we're just removing the bulk getting rid of a little bit over length and just creating some shape now so just working our way through the haircut feel we're not the shape you can see automatically that get that softness and get that bit of texture to it so what do you miss about New Zealand and so would you miss about New Zealand and what's the best thing you've so far about the UK or ways the roads yeah yeah my brother says that when he comes over here he says the driving over here is just like terrible but then every people that from America have been able here you know that I speaking to they all say that the same like they find it really difficult driving in the UK you know and what so what's the best thing you found about the UK then what's what's the thing that you've liked you've got a guy I'm really gonna miss this when we leave the UK nothing we go to another country that's that's pretty awesome like so the fact that with the fact that we're in Europe brilliant breaks it well does I sell all this country isn't so much like history and stuff that's another's really really cool yeah I think as well yeah I suppose it's one of those things that you sort of make that connections with other people and then you know that it's gonna be hard to come back and get a visa to come back again it once you've done your two-year visa it's it's quite difficult isn't it to get back again yeah but you're here in the barber shop getting a good haircut and you can you can take that well he's getting that a haircut are do you not drive a manual you didn't before oh well you don't know but you know how see don't you yeah but you haven't driven one for a long time but Carlos is it because he's lazy why you take it off your crutch on your crutch I have to move it to change on your other gear stick yeah he could put it somewhere yeah rather his crutch the micro suppose that's why that's why I sit in the back now he saw it just does that way driving trying to get his hand behind like stop it get off for some reason he puts me in a child see as well weird and yeah so should we take the hair right around the ear then so it's a little so it's completely off the air and short or in the sides yeah yeah okay cool so it's building up some shape you start to see that you've got all that nice graduation and that nice texture through there I'm gonna come round and we'll tidy all this up at the very end but for now I'm leaving it just because I'm just letting myself give give myself the option to see how it sits how long has it been since he's had short hair like this Wow was it so you basically just been traveling and not spending any money on hair okay so I'm going to go around the ear creating that little bit of shape in there and then again leaving it a little bit softer because if witness isn't being a scissor cut you don't want it to look too harsh otherwise I might as well just go anything just clip it all the sides off so there right Tommy okay so we're going to keep the hair coming forward with a bit of direction [Applause] oh he's watching his pirate always back back spar and any any trouble with Alex sparring is that he comes to work next day moaning moaning moaning that his arms and his back hurts Tommy I'm going to do the same on this side because it makes it look better so it looks even should do something different this side get some padding gone so just take the weight from behind the ear and we're gonna cut with some direction going forward do you have Tim Tams in New Zealand what we do ah that's what I miss when I went to Australia I fell in love with Tim Tams yeah and sherry ripes do you have cherry roach oh man I love a cherry right look we're just doing about cherry ripe sin Tim Tams oh no they're not oh I love a cherry person love me who likes Tara rocks to me ah really yeah Oh boxer mix chocolate stereotypes and sit those aside yeah yeah post them out to me quiet we're trying to film here he's attacking you attack attack attack that's it that is ferocious he'll try and bite you he hasn't ESIC Lee hasn't been given his contract by Eric yet there Erica as I said in the contract over yet yeah keep giving Greg too much money if you can't afford to take him on that's what it is okay so we're gonna go through the top now and have a little look and we're gonna blend it in but we're gonna leave a little bit of length for Tommy through the top Tommy you're gonna wear it over to sort of one side so I'll push it across one side like that a little bit maybe yeah yeah I kind of like either way yeah so you swing both ways okay cool okay we're gonna go a little bit shorter on the crown and work the way through to the front just that little bit longer so we start at the crown now bring it back [Applause] I'm just going to take that weight off the crown area I'm a bit like Marmite on the channel I think yeah I get I give you a yeast infection that's what those [Laughter] yeah they have they have Marmite a Vegemite so they have both they need yeah so I'm Johnny in the blue Marmite at the moment that's reduce salt so I'm just reducing my salt levels I like like I don't think I'll stop eating Marmite jeepers do you put Marmite in your baked beans as well oh that's great so oh yeah if you have a Marmite on toast and then put baked beans on it or just put a little dollop of Marmite in we're baked beans people call me people call me a revolutionary but I think it's a bit string but that's what people call me they call me they could be the Jamie Oliver of my time seeming that were the same age I probably he's the Jamie Oliver of his time probably I'm probably just not that well I'm not talking about the haircut mate it's boring okay so we're gonna raise so what I'm doing now so I'm razor cutting the rest of the haircut out so we can create all this soft edge so he's got a curly hair and if I use filling scissors or texturizing scissors they leave a straight edge running through a curly hair so what I'm doing is I'm using a cutthroat razor or Athenian razor slicing through the hair and as you can see it just gives you that softness so you've got the initial haircut that's taking the length away and now I'm just going through I'm just picking up sections of hair and doing it visual you know just moving the hair around seeing how it's it's if it's bit so I don't quite quite like I take them away looking for shape I'm looking for weight looking for too much waiting in an area so when we go through the back through here for example there's a bit too much weight through here and when that dries it will look a bit bulky so take a bit of that weight out there it's just a little bit lighter it makes it feel nice and light as well makes it a nice and light haircut it leaves a lot of texture through the haircut which is great I'm just following the haircut and then using the razor to go back over the haircut I've already done and that will just give that soft edge to it and I've left all this length through the middle at the moment so we can have a little blur to have a little play see what we want to do with it see if Tommy likes it if you want it really disconnected we can have it like disconnected and long and keep it all long like that so you can wear it over to one side and push it to one side you could stick it back a little bit or we can go a bit short or with a length through the front what do you want to do man maybe a little bit off the front yes so it's not in your eyes so much in the air yeah so what we do is with curly hair so here's a little tip for people that cut in curly hair so curly hair obviously when we cut hair we pull it tight we're looking for tension as we let go we've cut it but obviously with curly hair it's going to bounce up we want to dry this so as soon as you dry this it's gonna go see how that comes up to here and I'm gonna pull it out it's down past his nose so that's going to go from there to there without that without me even cutting any so I have to think about how much I'm gonna cut and where I'm gonna cut it from because as soon as I start cutting this it's gonna bounce up and anything to end up with a fringe wrap here and it's not going to look right so happy really mindful about this so I'm going to come in and cut an angle so you can see straight away it just bounces straight up as soon as I let go of it bouncing pinging up so I have to be really mindful about this so also the other thing I have to do is well I'm cutting is just keep pushing it back up keep moving it around that looking better so you've still got softness in there and you can wear it over this side you can push it over that side you know I think if I go too much short or with it you're going to end up with it just bouncing right up and you're going to end up with no hair through the front and gonna have like a weird a weird fringe just sitting in there and it's gonna going to lose that shape so you notice I've just sort of gone around the edges and then just taken away a little bit of weight that was what apparent there and you and you and you can see basically that I'm just leaving that it just looks like it's grown out it's got that real soft edge to it you know I wouldn't pick tup all these techniques over the last 26 years kind of hair but you know this this is a head this is this is hairdressing which is not a barbering technique really as such okay so we're gonna just draw out naturally and just see how it drives it then we're gonna over look at the bit the beard there's a little bit of neck hair under here we can clean that up under there just allow that to sit over the top okay and then we're gonna just clean up the facial hair [Applause] so just given that a clean line helps to make it look a little bit more contoured okay I'm going to clean up this neckline you were saying to me that was a bit of this a little bit as I go baking you a little bit of that so we're gonna clean that up it changes the shape of your face straight away as well it's like just marking out the neckline I'm just going to give you a little bit of shape here with a moustache okay I'm going to taper this in with the Clippers and we're gonna have a little look see how shapes forming out I might just keep a little bit of this link through the front here if that's okay with you yeah cool okay I'm gonna go in with two yeah it's quite a lot of light well I like to call like well-being festivals now right you know all around the well all around the world but they've really come into their own a lot more haven't they you know I mean no I'm working I'm working at three this year so working at one called the Sun and Moon Festival and that's in sort like sorry and there's one called the big big retreat that's in Pembrokeshire and wells and then I'm doing men fest so it's a men's festival they do women fest first and then and then they do men fest afterwards and that's down in Froome down in Somerset so it's like the first ones connecting – obviously we've got s in within and a way yeah and then divine mastery and after that if that's your that's your thing okay so I'm gonna go in with them one and just give that little little bit more shape [Applause] you still want to keep I don't you want to keep the beard and you want to keep it pretty long ish but just about giving you a little bit of seat all right Tommy so I think I'm gonna put some sea salt spray in here and just they're just dry and naturally sour don't make it look too big and Buffon is that okay yeah what'd we say no no I mean she hey that means she hates it me I mean don't mean she hates it what she's saying is I don't like it so if you like it that's great been some citrus Python it's citrusy and spicy that's why they call it that I haven't tasted it no it's not something I regularly do know that I don't do that Carlos no I windows inside of Windows you know that's Windows yeah sunshine coach okay brother what we saying say Michael I say okay so I left it a little bit soft around the back swim in so you know it looks like you've had a good haircut but it doesn't look like you've just had a haircut you know what I mean so you know you got that soft edges rather than hard edges lots of loads and loads of texture loads of layers in there she should feel lighter but you got some direction and movement to your haircut yeah yeah that's it thanks for watching this

  2. Big shout-out to Mahesh, Craig and the boys from Gentleman & Rogues Club – the best barbers in Poole! Used to cut me on a regular basis when I lived in the UK.

  3. He didn’t look too happy after comparatively
    But the shock of a haircut always has me feeling weird immediately after. I would let Mahesh cut my hair however he wanted

  4. loving this channel, new subscriber here, but also a new barber, and learning so much from yous, the difference between me and other barbers, a just started off my own business, mobile barber, which I focus on clients which can't get out the house or can't make it to a barber shop due to there working hours 🙂 love you guys are bread brand, keep the amazing vids coming 🙂

  5. There was really only one way to cut this hair and Mahesh absolutely NAILED it!
    He walked in looking scruffy althou his hair has great potiential, well he went to the right guy and got the cut he really needed.
    If you know hair, then you know this guys hair will grow back and look the absolute business!

  6. He looked so unique before, and now he looks like an average british guy. Also, this fringe makes his face looks fatter. I expected the hairdresser to cut it on a side a bit to avoid this symmetry on his round face.

  7. harika ustalık, çok hoş kesim ellerine sağlık. ((wonderful craftsmanship, very pleasant cut health into your hands.))
