Barber by trade, Rockstar at heart
When you’ve played in bands when you were young, you know the dream is to one day get your big break. You work hard, you write the songs, you do the small unpaid gigs and when you realise you’re paying more than you get paid, you realise it is just an expensive hobby.
Boudewijn Jurriaans, better known as Barber Birdman, is a household name in the barber scene in Europe. He has been a barber for some time now and is the owner of Amsterdam Dandy barber shop in the historic city centre of Haarlem.
For a few years he has been on stage on various barber shows across Europe. Instead of his band, it was his passion for cutting hair that led him to rock on big stages, realising his dream.
Specialising in classic mens haircuts, Barber Birdman believes mens hair should be cut in a way that is easy to maintain, lasts longer and is easy to style for the client.
By adding modern cutting techniques and design to the classic barber styles, he’s found a way to achieve all that.
Let’s not forget, he does a mean shave too. Straight razor skills make for a big part in his skill set and are the one thing that set a barber apart from a mens stylist.
So if you’re keen on learning shaving and beard trimming, he’s your guy.
