Joost is a Barber of 26 years old from the Netherlands. He started with cutting hair when he was only 14. After school he was cutting his little brother and class mates and his soccer team. He learned a lot from just looking at Barbers and Stylists. When he turned 16 he went to a Cosmetology school to become a hairdresser. He learned to cut and shave men during his internship at a Barber shop in Gouda.
He learned this the old fashion way, this is how the team worked there for generations long. When Joost turned 18 he participated in The Hair Fashion Awards Competition. He became third for New coming talent. Of course with a men’s cut. He worked in different salons and after a couple of years he decided to travel the world.
Joost made a documentary for the ‘Coiffure Magazine’ to prove that if you are a good Stylist you can travel the world with only comb and shears. He traveled through Asia and Australia and saw the most beautiful places on earth and shared his knowledge there. This was a great experience. When Joost came back in The Netherlands he focused on becoming a better Stylist and Barber. He even got nominated for a Coiffure Award.
To become a ‘Master’ Barber he received his education all over the world. But the best training he ever got was from a 72 year old Barber who worked since he was 15. Joost loves to cut, shave and sharpen the razor-blades with perfection. For him there is nothing better to work as a Barber and share his knowledge all over the world.
