We caught up with Rebel City lass Emma, one of Rebels longest serving barbers, to chat classic cuts, dugs and Elvis.
How long have you been barbering for?
About 9 years, I started my training at Rebel and have been here ever since, I’m in with the bricks!
What do you like about barbering?
I love the fast pace and the banter. I used to do hair dressing too but to be honest I don’t really like doing ladies hair, I would much rather spend my day doing guys cuts than taking hours over a ladies cut and colour. My day flies in because I am so busy and I am doing something that I love.
What’s your favourite style to create?
At the moment I do a A LOT of fades so it’s quite refreshing when someone comes in for a short back and sides or something more creative, I also really enjoy styling longer hair.
Your must have KM product?
Full.Again is amazing for adding volume and it works wonder for my gents who are a wee bit follically challenged. Young.Again is my go to product for sleeker styles, it’s a miracle oil that smooths and adds incredible shine.
Who is your style icon?
Elvis, he was trendsetter in his day and his hair has become an such an iconic style, even now you can see his influence in some of the hairstyles that are fashionable
What do you get up to in your spare time?
I am a bit of a crazy dog lady, when I am not in work I like hanging out with my 2 dogs, a Jack Russell and a Jack Russell cross Chihuahua. They are my babies!
