Doing his thing!

Pont Smith talks to Des Murray

HairClubLive has been established for quite a few years now, and we’re super-proud of all our members over time, watching them blossom. One of our earliest supporters on the OpenChairNight tours is Pont Smith. Yep – see this pic of him at the Star of Kings back in 2015 having a little chat with Desmond Murray. Love it!

Today, Pont runs Bebop salon in Holloway Rd London with his partner Chloe Herve, and things are going really well. Not only is the salon a neat space well worth a visit, but Pont and Chloe are now rolling out a pioneering education concept. which is a wealth of simple but highly effective techniques under the label ‘Bebop Education’. Already lead educators for the R+Co brand in the UK and Ireland, Bebop’s own education platform explores a complete landscape of hairdressing, from precision cutting, wearable hair and men’s hair as well as investigating subcultures with references to art and fashion.

The pair explain: “We not only show you the technique behind the haircut and iron out any bad habits, but also give you the thinking behind it in its most simplified form so that you can understand and apply it to your work – cutting hair should never be complicated.”
