The slogan for Austin may be “Keep it weird,” but the Barber Authority powered by Andis kept the musical acts and crew at Austin City Limits looking clean cut and groomed with complimentary services performed in their mobile barbershop.
At the three-day event, Barber Authority lead by master barbers Steve Vilot and Matt Ketchum, recruited Austin stylist Heather Barclay, owner of Orange Salon, and her team to assist with the shaves, cuts, hair designs and bang trims for the VIPs in the Artist Lounge.
“The artists really appreciate the services we offer,” says Vilot, who also goes backstage to groom the headlining acts. “Our three chairs were consistently filled. A fresh cut right before going on stage makes a huge difference and with our talented crew using Andis cutting tools and heat styling tools, both men and women walked away looking their best.”
Andis supplied the barbering team with trimmers, clippers, hair dryers, capes, towels and the new RAZR Pro Lather Machine.
“Most of the artists want a clean up of their signature cut, but a few times there’s someone who wants a hair design and my T-Outliners are my brush to their canvas,” says Ketchum.
