Bennie Pollard has a thick resume. He is the owner of Bennie and Friends salon in Louisville, Kentucky, founder of the BennieFactor professional product line and a multi-time NAHA finalist and winner. He has recently turned his attention to styles and products for his male clientele. The result was the Gage for Men complete line of hair care products, and his signature Responsible Style collection of men’s looks, featuring three styles for guys that are short and “clean cut” with the potential for a more adventurous styling option.

Pollard and national platform artists Aaron Ring and Christie Young use a variety of techniques, including shear-over-comb and clipper cutting to achieve a precise perimeter, tapers and fades. Not content with the classic men’s cutting techniques, the team incorporates contemporary tricks like twist cutting and razor texturizing for styles that are preppy or piece-y.
