WAHL FADE IT FORWARD MENTORSHIP

Investing In The Future Of Barbering

From what we saw this morning at Chicago’s His and Hers Barber School, the future of the barber industry is in good hands. In an effort to help young people achieve their career dreams, Wahl Professional presented four Chicago-area youths with full scholarships to His & Hers Barber School after they successfully completed the Wahl Fade It Forward Mentorship Program. Today’s event served as the launch for this amazing program designed to inspire and foster future barber industry professionals.

The scholarship winners were paired with mentors to provide workforce development opportunities by UCAN, one of Chicago’s oldest social services. Wahl “Fade It Forward” barber mentors include pros from Raze Up Grooming Lounge, Nyra’s Hair Design Salon and Pro Image Cutz Ltd.

Lance Wahl, Global VP-Professional Products at Wahl Clipper Corporation and Garland “G-Whiz” Fox, Wahl Education & Artistic Team Member—who also serves as a barber mentor for the program— were both on hand to congratulate the scholarship winners and present each with a very important tool of their trade: their own Wahl Professional 5-Star Senior clippers. Congratulations to scholarship winners Mikayla Harper, Andre Whittington, Quientin M. Crump and Sebastian Moore.

↑ “I want to see them be greater than me,” said Garland “G-Whiz” Fox, Wahl Education & Artistic Team (W.E.A.T.) Member, about the scholarship winners. “We want them to be the next level of barbers…We want them to go to new heights.”

↑ How many cool cuts have these fave tools of the trade crafted?
