    Luke's Barbershop at Foot Locker
    We caught up with Luke Dolan, of Luke's Barbershop after his recent run of pop ups in Foot Locker stores across the UK. Check it out What’s been your highlight of your time at Foot Locker? The Marble Arch store launch was a highlight because it was so busy and the energy in the venue was electric. Charlie Sloth on the decks and my 3-chair pop swamped with models, actors, DJs and Foot Locker hierarchy waiting as long as necessary!  Any funny moments? A special and funny moment for me was walking in to Marble Arch on the night before opening and they surprised me with a giant sign with my branding on it that was going to be in the centre of the store! I was like are you serious?! How did your team find it?

    Freshwater's Finest
    Freshwater is one of Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Duke Kahanamoku held his first Australian surf demonstration at Freshwater Beach, so the locals like to claim that Freshwater is home to Australian Surfing. It's because of this historic event and the even bigger claim that you could say that surfing runs through the local’s veins. There is a fair bit of truth about that; one visit to Freshwater and you’ll see that the beach is what really brings the community together. Uppercut Deluxe Ambassador, Pat Capocci, is one talented dude. You probably know him best for his music or maybe his surfing. A few moons ago Pat was a sign writer, but Pat decided to put down his paintbrush and pick up a set of scissors. Barbering came pretty natural to Pat and after paying his dues, he opened up his own shop – Flying Tiger Barbershop.

    Shane Nesbitt at Lefty's Barbershop
    Last Monday we brought down our very own Shane Nesbitt for an education and social night at Lefty’s Barbershop in San Diego, CA. We had barbers from all across Southern California join us for a chance to get together and learn some things from the man himself. We love when we get these opportunities to give back to the barbering community and come together to support one another.
