The award-winning Miguel Gutierrez, AKA, The Nomad Barber needs your help as he plans to travel round the world on nothing but his extensive barbering knowledge and the money in his backpocket.
With 10 years of barbering experience and winning numerous awards you would think Miguel would be a content man. However, his drive and ambition to learn the ancient methods of barbering will soon see Miguel embarking on an adventure into places many barbers would only dream of going.
The journey begins on June 12th 2013, ten years to the day that the Nomad Barber began his career in the world of barbering. He will fly to Turkey, the gateway of the Middle East, to begin a pilgrimage over 12 months to uncover the secrets and history of barbering and male grooming worldwide.
His aim is to work with and learn from fellow barbers in over five continents, discovering how a trade, which dates back to 3500 B.C., varies across the globe. Traveling on a budget by land, sea, or flight – this is truly a trip of a lifetime.
Miguel, commenting on this exciting adventure, said:
“I’ve been told by so many clients over the years that my trade is something I could take anywhere in the world. I’m now really excited to be able to put this to the test. The truth is, everyone needs a haircut.”
“Since being awarded American Crew UK’s Men’s hairstylist of the year in late 2012 I have been overwhelmed with the support I have received from the vast community of barbers across the globe. I hope that this trip will allow me to unite barbers from very different walks of life.”
The Journey is being part funded by co-sponsor and clipper manufacturer WAHL and also via a crowd funding campaign on Kick-starter offering haircuts internationally to raise enough cash to take a professional cameraman with him.
