As a result of the COVID-19 stay-at-home order, Wahl Professional is providing free barbering education to barbers and stylists each week through the company’s Facebook page with the help of the Wahl Education and Artistic (W.E.A.T.) members.
The clipper manufacturer is hosting Facebook Lives twice a day with various WEAT educators, who are providing step-by-step instructions and answering questions on how to create a collection of different looks. The videos are being housed on Wahl Professional’s Facebook profile and can be re-watched in case a viewer misses the live stream.
This week, Nieves Almaraz (@howtofadehair), Miguel Rosas (@newstyle84), Juan Ramos (@offical_j_ramos), Kevin Nguyen (@yakuzabarber), and Andy Rosario (@andyfademaster) will be taking over the clipper manufacturer’s Facebook page to teach viewers different techniques and cuts.
Wahl Professional is also hosting Instagram Lives, in which followers can get to know the selected WEAT members and learn how they are handling the slowdown in business during these times.
Another way the company is staying engaged is through Disruptour Live on Instagram, which is hosted by all the tour educators and host Byrd Mena (@byrdmena) as a way to interact with the community, while travel is put on hold.
