We would like to introduce you to Hank (BUTCH CUT) who will be cutting at Barberette on Monday 13th March 2017.
BUTCH CUT started September 2015 in Berlin as an sustainable community building art project. It's objective is to create a multi-generational safe space for gender non-conforming queer people and everyone else. Hank is the founder and main barber of this one-person, donation-based project.
They really enjoy cutting all kinds of hair, especially male retro and urban street styles, including razor fades and beard trims. They've been cutting their own and friends' hair for 20+ years. They really enjoy talking to people and create the style they want together with them. They don't impose haircuts on anyone and do their best to make the customer feel sexy in their skin and about their hair. They hope this positive attitude is transferred to and appreciated by the people who ask them to cut their hair.
To book with Hank during their pop-up at Barberette please contact them directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Services are donation-based
Our ethos is not just an unique selling point, but backed by 1700 + clients and supporters around the World who agrees, that there shouldn't be difference in pricing because of your gender. All we care is creating great hair for our clients.
We are a safe community space where everyone would be listened to side by side, and helped to express how they would like to look as an integral part of their identity.
Barberette is constantly challenging sexist pricing structures and attitudes of salons that impose their own stereotypical ideas of what their clients want.
We actively campaigns for change across mainstream media, such as the BBC, Modern Barber and Marie Claire and is in discussion with national hairdressing organizations and educational establishments to ensure that people of all genders, races and sexualities be made welcome, safe, equal and listened to, side by side in salons.
Barberette also has an active role in the Hackney community running pop-ups and sponsored cuts andshaves for charities such as Indigo, Opening Doors, Stonewall, Scope, Little Princess Trust, Moorfields Eye Hospital, Kith and Kids, Breast Cancer Awareness and homeless charities.
A few months ago we welcomed a new studio neighbor Mark Marmont, who moved in opposite the Barberette hub to open his very own gin distillery, 58 Gin.
As a business, we love to work collaboratively with the community, and here at Barberette we couldn’t resist the idea of bringing two stylish businesses together to produce our own branded gin. Cut Throat Gin has been specially developed for Barberette, combining five different botanicals to give a razor sharp finish with 47% vol.
