Too short, too asymmetric, too bald? Just some of the quarantine disasters that have fallen on people as they take to DIY haircuts.
Now, a barber has come to the rescue by giving virtual consultations to guide men on how to execute the perfect cut during lockdown.
Not only is Birmingham-based Anil Salhan helping his fellow man look their best, he’s also fundraising cash – with 100% of money raised donated to mental health charities.
Anil, founder of award-winning BLACC+BLOND, launched the initiative to help individuals – or their partners, armed with clippers and scissors – with a 45-minute appointment.
Speaking to Uspire, Anil said: “Being in constant communication with my existing client-base of 200+ men has proved to me that the impact of not getting a haircut extends to their mental health.
“Be it the impartial chats they have in the barber chair, or how looking good radiates a positive mindset.
“I’m hoping the sessions can offer some valuable relief in these unprecedented times.”
In addition to the consultations, award-winning Anil has posted tutorials on how to do a buzzcut style and trim a beard on the salon’s Instagram page.
He’s also created a range of beanie hats to cover up overgrown hair, again with 100% of the profits being donated to his selected charities.
