Loving the news that Akito Scissors – longtime supporters of HCL and our OpenChairNight (since the first one in 2014 we think!) – have signed up HairClubLive’s Mathew Watt as brand ambassador. Mathew owns the Mathew Watt Hairdressing salon and Nail Bar in Edinburgh, and we’ve met him on several OpenChairNights in the city. The partnership with Akito will be one founded on cutting and colour skills, with Mathew using his hairdressing expertise and passion for education to help grow the brand. A representative for Akito the brand are “intrigued by Mathew’s love for social media and posting creative, educational content via his different social media plaforms. Akito Scissors’ have a philosophy – to work with ambitious, up and coming hairdressers, including those who want to establish themselves in the industry, making Mathew a perfect for the brand.” We’re thrilled for all concerned. During the rest of this year, Mathew will be doing educational tours and seminars and putting together collections with the Akito Scissors Associates Team. He says; “I am extremely excited and honoured to have became an Ambassador for Akito Scissors. Being asked to represent such an amazing brand is a great feeling. The people behind Akito Scissors are inspirational and I can’t wait to be working closely with them and be part of their journey.” Ah! Good luck mate!
