We’ve long felt the support of the Akito scissors brand in all we do at HairClubLive.com so it’s great to see them sharing the love with others, too. And how! Taking a trip to Cuba recently, team Akito intended to teach and donate scissors to barbers and hairdressers in the capital city of Havana. In fact, a meeting with William (pictured above) a 24-year-old, self-taught barber in a back alley ‘salon’, gave Akito team themselves plenty of learning opportunities! Owner John Allen declared himself amazed by watching William work just with a pair of kitchen scissors, a razor blade and a dodgy old pair of clippers. “We found that the majority of the scissors being used by the Cuban hairdressers and barbers were blunt, and a lot of the electrical equipment held together by tape, but the quality of the workmanship was great!”. Sounds like a visit with mutual benefits on both sides. Good for John and his team. It’s a brotherhood we all belong to, and proud of it.
