Embrace your hair growth!
During lockdown we noticed that a lot of young people were feeling low and rough as they couldn't get to a barber during these times.
It can be difficult when we don't feel our best, so we decided to create a #NoTrim Challenge, and invited young men to embrace their hair growth by sending in a ‘before lockdown’ picture of themselves (with a fresh trim), and an ‘after’ video embracing their current ‘lockdown look’.
All of the young men chosen to feature in the videos received a free 'post-lockdown' haircut with their own barber.
Local, well-known figures also got involved in the challenge, including:
- Youth Workers and Adolescent Workers
- A well-known Croydon YouTuber
- The author of the Amazon best-selling Caribbean cook book
- A Merton barber, who is a pillar in his community
The videos were fun and light-hearted and we saw the young men embrace their hair growth through positive action, and show support to other young men who may have been feeling the same way. A fresh trim after lockdown, paid for by Off the Record, was also something for the young men to look forward to.More videos
