SKILLS Profile – Episode 6 “The Brand”

 

In this episode, our CEO @barber.mo talks about how he came up with the name of the shop, “SKILLS By Barber Mo”

 

He mentioned that he took inspiration from the Apple brand story wherein when you hear Apple these days you don’t necessarily think of it as a fruit but either a device. He wanted to have a name that can complement the type of job or service that the barbers do, which is as an artist and as a person who handcrafts his job suited for each different individual that he will serve.

Barber Mo was inspired by the Apple story and he wanted to follow through with the same mindset when he started his own brand.

That’s when he thought of the word “SKILLS” as being the type of person who got what it takes to deliver the best quality service and experience.

 

And for the people in the future to think of whenever they hear the word “SKILLS” by Barber Mo, that this is the place where you can get the best hair and beard grooming service, with the proper quality and experience that you can never find somewhere else.

SKILLS Profile – Episode 3 “The Dream”

 

In this episode, our CEO @barber.mo talks about how he pursued his dreams despite the limited support of the people around him when he started working for someone else. In his point of view, you are the only one responsible for your dream so don’t expect anyone to do it for you.

 

He stressed that the most important thing that you need to have is “Experience” and at the same time to have your own “Vision” or purpose. And even when you have both you still need to convince someone to support you on that Dream which is never easy, and always neglected.

 

Barber Mo stressed that the most important thing that you need to have is “Experience” and a “Vision” or purpose.

Most people decide to do things based on what is good for them not what is good for you or to anyone, You cannot ask or tell people to do something just because it is wrong on your point-of-view and it is with that thought that he didn’t want to work anymore for someone else and that he wanted to do something which is bigger and greater.

 

Since he saw that the future that he envisioned is not with someone else but only by himself then he started to plan and made move by doing a list of everything that what the client needs and what he wanted to avoid as well as all the bad experiences that he faced and if ever he will open his very own shop in the future he will be ready.

SKILLS Profile – Episode 2 “The Struggle”

 

In this episode our CEO Barber Mo talks about his experience when he arrived in Dubai and how much he struggled with the way people look at them and the industry that he is on as well as the experience that led people to not trust the barbers or stylist.

 

In his perspective being a barber is more than just cutting hair but is a form of “Art” and a form of “Counseling” to help the people to be more comfortable and not make them feel like they are just a client and they are just barbers that have to cut your hair, and that’s it.

 

Barber Mo discusses how the people (clients) view them as Barbers and why the Barbers struggle to deliver the client’s expectations.

He stressed the importance of understanding the client to avoid instilling more fear and disappointment, that was the challenge for him as he was working as a freelancer before but when he started to apply for a job that’s when he found out about the truth in his industry.

He was shocked to find out the weird questions that his boss was asking.

The most common question that every boss or interviewee asks is “How much money can you make for me in a month”? and next to that would be “How fast can you cut hair?”

 

He was shocked to hear about these questions and nobody even bothered to ask if “How much can you make my clients satisfied?”

 

That’s when he understood why the people struggle to trust their barbers and why the barbers are struggling to advise their client, because of the misunderstanding as well as the expectations of both parties.

SKILLS Talk – Episode 2 “THE KERATIN HAIR TREATMENT IS NOT FOR STRAIGHTENING”

 

In this episode our Senior Barber @barber.mo talks about the common misconception of the Keratin Hair Treatment, what is the Keratin Treatment? and does it really straighten the Hair? Let’s find out!

 

Keratin Protein found in Hair

Keratin Protein found in Hair Strands, skin and in our Nails

 

Keratin is a natural type of protein found in your skin, hair, and nails. This protein forms fibers that make it strong. It acts as an external protective and internal structural protein to protect your hair and keep them healthy.

 

Due to exposure to external factors like the sun (Most especially here in the Middle East), chemicals from your styling products, or changes in your lifestyle, the keratin which is present in the hair gets depleted. This loss is the result that leads to dry, damaged, and dull hair.

 

Unhealthy/Damaged Hair

Unhealthy and Damaged Hair

 

As mentioned above, The Keratin Hair Treatment doesn’t have the purpose of having your hair straight. The reason why you think like that is because of the process of doing the Keratin as it involves using the blow-dry to remove the moisture and the main reason is the flat-iron that helps seal the solution upon application.

The benefits of having the Keratin Hair Treatment is it makes the hair more manageable, making it look healthier, it saves you a lot of time in styling your hair as well as using the blow-dry and using less hair product.

 

If you are planning or interested to do your Keratin Hair Treatment in the future make sure to do the following tips and advice for your safety.

 

Hair Consultation Before Doing the Keratin Hair Treatment

Doing the Hair Consultation is Very Important before you do any Hair Treatment/Coloring Procedure

 

  1. Find a professional who has a good background in doing the Keratin Hair Treatment.
  2. Check the product that they are using and avoid if Formaldehyde is found, ask if they have any alternative, or find another salon that has Formaldehyde-free Keratin Hair Treatment.
  3. Make sure to do a consultation first if your scalp or hair is capable of the Treatment.
  4. Inform your stylist about all your past history in the last few months and if you did any hair straightening/relaxing as this could affect the results during the process.
  5. Make sure to follow the advice of your stylist after doing the Keratin Hair Treatment in order to prolong and maintain the effects of the Treatment.
  6. Make sure to only use the home care products advised by the stylist for your hair maintenance.
