For about six months we dedicated ourselves to exploring the stories of a group of barbers that were some of the first and some of the best barbers in Amsterdam. This idea came about due to a conversation with a barber at Cut Throat in Amsterdam, where we learned about the hard work that went into learning and practicing the traditional skills of cutting hair men’s hair.
Mind you… there is a big difference between a barber and a hairdresser. A hairdresser may be very good at cutting hair but a barber has the specialized training needed to sculpt facial hair as well as understanding the finer points of hairdressing. Barbers are also for exclusively for men. Check out our 5 part-series and learn about the sometimes difficult path to becoming a barber, starting with the first episode of the owners of Cut Throat Amsterdam explaining their 10-year journey and the kick in the ass they needed to start Cut Throat with its “barber plus” concept.
