“People don’t know they’re getting a bad shave until they get a good one,” says Adam. “A great shave and haircut should not only be an amazing experience for a client, it should be a demonstration of a barber’s skills and abilities.”
Adam emphasizes experience over service when if comes to shaving. “Your client should lie back, completely relax and fall into a state of complete calm as you work,” he details. “Once you’re done, you slowly bring your client back around with rejuvenating citrus aromas. It needs to be spa-like.”

With a Business Degree from Cox School of Business and a graduate of the London College of Fashion, University of Arts, London, Adam brings a unique combination of higher learning to the stage. “My style is to build people up,” he explains. “My job is to make others succeed and take barbering in the right direction.”
