Salon International 2019 - A Round Up

On the weekend of the 5th,6th & 7th October, Salon International brung all of Industries leading Brands, Hairdressers & Barbers under one roof at the Excel London. We at OFF - CUT have been looking forward to the Sunday 6th in particular - We had been asked to showcase at least 1 Haircut on stage!!!

We had tasked Callum with showcasing a very popular Mens haircut of the moment - The Crop.

Below is some of the action from the day >>>

1 Year On....

Wow…. Where has that Year gone?!

365 Days after opening the doors to the Public for the very first time seems a very long time ago, lots has happened and we have grown quicker than we could’ve ever expected or hoped for, but it also only seems like last week….

We still have all the energy that we did on that very first day too and we are pretty sure that shows. Although its much easier when you’re doing something you love right?

The Team is up to 6 Full Time Staff now with the latest addition of Jimmy, with many regular Guest Barbers also playing a big part in where we find ourselves after the first year. OFF - CUT is thriving, with huge plans for the future. The love & support we have had on a near daily basis from the locals has been nothing short of crazy, some doubted us, some didn’t quite understand us or what we was trying to provide but we truly believe that we have proved them all wrong + some after our first year of trading.

Camberwell Fair 2019 - The Round Up

As some of you may know we took part in this years Camberwell Fair.

The day epitomised Camberwell, full of life, energy, variety & a huge sense of community.

Located next to our physical neighbours (nearly anyway) Lumberjack, we was instantly feeling the love from their great team, providing those Iced Coffees for the team in the warmer than predicted afternoon sun to get us through the back to back queue we accumulated while creating some theatre behind the chairs.

Another big shout out goes to Uppercut Deluxe for sending us a tonne of freebies to give to each and every interested person. Ranging from Mini Styling Tins to Combs to Sticker Packs.

Take a look below for some of the action from the day.

We’ll see you next year Camberwell Fair!

Camberwell Fair 2019

Camberwell Fair 2019 is a free entry festival taking place on Camberwell Green on 31st August 2019, 12pm-9pm.

Made possible by support from Arts Council England, Southwark Council, High Street Challenge, National Lottery Awards for All and sponsors Zipcar, Off -Cut Barbers and Easygym, the Fair will welcome 5000 people from Camberwell, neighbouring areas and beyond to come together eating, drinking, dancing, trading and celebrating this amazing community.

This will be the 5th Camberwell Fair in modern times, but there was a Fair on the same site from 1279-1855 until shut down by the authorities for ‘immoral and riotous behaviour’. Camberwell has changed a lot since those times, and the Fair of course reflects the people of modern Camberwell, but the spirit is the same – a chance for the whole community to come together and unite.

We will be bringing a ‘Mobile Barber Shop’ to the green for the whole duration of the Fair. A 2 Chair Set up bringing the OFF - CUT experience closer to the people.
