Babyliss4Barbers has launched a limited edition Influencer Collection inspired by three of the biggest barber names in the industry: Sofie Pok (@staygold31), Rob Ferrel (@Robtheoriginal) and Joshua Hawkins (AKA Hawk the Barber Prodigy @_thehawkvision.) The three are kicking off the offering with a tour of the US, demonstrating their skills with the new collection.
Pok, an award-winning barber and lead member of the BabylissPRO Barberology Team, is based in Los Angeles. Inspired by her attention to detail and modern West Coast style, BabylissPRO has created the BlackFX Metal Lithium Clipper with a Graphite Fade blade to help her establish her clean lines.
“I feel really honored to be one of the three barbers in this influencer collection for Babyliss,” says Pok. “Seeing a clipper inspired by me just makes me so proud. I made sure my clipper came with a graphite fade blade which makes it really nice and smooth when fading – I can’t wait for people to get their hands on this collection!”
The WhiteFX Metal Lithium Clipper with a DLC/Titanium Taper blade is inspired by Ferrel. As an original member of the BabylissPRO Barberology Team, Ferrel has become world-famous for his laser sharp, intricate and lifelike hair portraits, in addition to his authentic barbering skills.
Finally, the RedFX Metal Lithium Clipper with a DLC/Titanium Taper blade, has been created for Hawkins. Recently awarded “Best Barber in America," Hawkin's commitment to classic barbering techniques, mixed with a modern approach to shape and design, make him a master of his craft. Each clipper includes an additional interchangeable gold taper arm and gold bottom cap to mix, match and customize.
“I think it’s a true blessing,” says Hawkins. “This is the first time any clipper company has done anything like this with influencers, so I just think it’s huge that we were chosen out of so many amazing artists to be a part of this concept.”
