To get in gear up for the movie’s April 15th release, the cast of Barbershop: The Next Cut visited Chicago recently during a special two-day “Neighborhood Tour” in the Windy City!
First, a special red-carpet screening of the movie gave Chicago fans a heads up on the long-awaited film. Outside the theater, a mobile grooming airstream was parked with Wahl Professional’s barber Juan Ramos and Hyde Park Hair Salon’s master barbers Ishmael and Chris Golden inside doing cuts on show attendees.
Then the following day, cast members of Barbershop: The Next Cut participated in Urban Prep Academy’s annual “100% Announcement” event during which Urban Prep Academy high school seniors recently accepted to college, from its three campuses, ceremoniously exchanged their red ties for a special red and gold striped design indicating their college acceptance. This marks the seventh consecutive year that 100% of Urban Prep Academy seniors have been accepted to a four-year college or university. Ice Cube, Cedric the Entertainer, Regina Hall, Common and Deon Cole congratulated students and assisted with the tie presentation ceremony.
After the ceremony, the stars headed to the famous Hyde Park Hair Salon (President Obama’s barbershop) to meet with fans and give away more free haircuts on the Barbershop: The Next Cut mobile barbershop truck.
