Listeners take a look in the mirror—do you need a haircut? Of course, we’ve all seen the memes about haircuts during the pandemic. But barbering is serious business; it’s also a service that happens in close contact. How has the industry (and individual barbers) responded? Quincy Jackson is a barber and proprietor of Q Jackson Barbershop. Quincy talks about what he’s doing; new training he’s received from industry leaders; how he’s in contact with fellow barbers like he’s never done before.
