Over the weekend, thousands of barbers traveled from more than 64 different countries to visit the inspiring Barber Connect event in Telford, near Birmingham UK. With over 70 barber specific exhibitors and brands, this event always offers a unique opportunity for the sharing of new barber shop ideas, barbering techniques and of course a perfect chance to review and sample the latest products on the market first hand and through innovative seminars.
Uppercut Deluxe were at the show all weekend holding it down with their large exhibition space sponsored by Deus Ex Machina and Sailor Jerry Rum. The entire Uppercut Deluxe range was showcased in full, including the latest Matt Pomade which launched in March and has quickly become an essential part of the daily grooming routine for many guys.
Also on show was the newly launched Wash Range which includes all new formulations in an Everyday Shampoo, Everyday Conditioner and a game changing new product Degreaser.
But what's Barber Connect without a few of our favourite UK Barbers! Living legends Chris Brownless from North West Barber Co and George Coady from Folsom Barber Club were on site for the entire event to do what they do best.. Both of the guys truly out did themselves, working tirelessly to demonstrate how to execute and style classic and modern looks for the everyday guy. A testament not only to their technical skills as barbers but also their work ethic. Nice one boys.
A big thanks goes out to anybody and everybody that came to visit the Uppercut Deluxe stand and made it one of the busiest trade shows to date. For anybody who missed out, we look forward to meeting you next year.
