Last week some of the kiddos from His n’ Hers Barber School shared their colds with me, so UNFORTUNATELY, I missed a few days of Barber School this week!
This week we learned how to shave with a straight blade on a balloon. This is a tried and true way to help new BARBERS MAINTAIN a steady hand while shaving a face. I learned that you apply the shaving foam in a circular motion to help to stimulate the hair follicles, help the facial hair to stand up straight and cleanse the face. The next step is the hot towel (over the face and the shave foam) to open the pores to help get a closer shave.
We practiced this on pink balloons which we filled with water so they would stand up! We also drew faces on our balloons to give them a personality. Ruben made his a demon face and told us about his Ouija board experience. This just added to the excitement of the day!
BTW- My fades are slowly getting better! I have been testing a super duper undercover WAHL clipper using my new fade knowledge! During my sick time, I actually watched a bunch of fade videos on youtube. What are YOUR FAVORITE FADE VIDEOS??
