For the next few months we will be featuring our talented staff at Men+Co. We have the most skilled barbers in the City, country and quite possibly the entire Hair Industry globally. So let’s get to know some of the talent behind the brand.
This month’s Barber Spotlight is on our lovely, Miss Jo our longest standing barber on staff, our former Ms Collins Manager and our busiest City location barber. We spoke with her about barbering, life and her future in Australia.
Can you tell us why you love barbering?
The creativity you can have with barbering it be with the hair on your head or hair on your face. And all types of people you meet along the way.
Having migrated here from the UK, It has always been a dream of mine to live in Australia where the sun always shines! (But, I choose Melbourne haha!!!!)
The way of life & the wildlife you can take off and in just a hour out of the CBD and your surroundings are beautiful at any time of the year.
What your favourite thing about your clientele?
The story’s they have; if it’s nights out with friends or taking their kid out somewhere it’s always nice to hear others fun times
What your clients leave with after their appointmentt with you?
That everyone is different in their own way and to accept and enjoy each and everyone when you have the chance to talk to someone and even learn something from them no matter how big or small.
What’s something personal you would like our readers to know….
Moving here as a 23 year old, on my own, it was so frightening and exciting at the same time. Since, I have found times very difficult but if it wasn’t for the people I’ve met along the way [and of course Chris and Gary for giving me the opportunity of sponsorship] I wouldn’t be in this beautiful country right now.
What does the future hold for you and Men+Co?
My plans are to make myself more permanent here in Australia and hopefully see another thriving Men+Co open in Australia by yours truly.
