Local food and fashion collaboration, Hustle&Scout and The Forage, will present a Movember charity drive at their final market event for the year this Saturday, 22 November.
To raise awareness and money for men’s health, the twilight market will take gold coin donations upon entry and present a pop-up barber shop for men, with all proceeds going directly to the Movember Foundation. The barber shop will be run by local barber shop, Barbero Canberra, based in Bailey’s Arcade. Barbero will close its doors on 22 November, and pop-up exclusively from 3-8pm at Hangar #47, Fairbairn. Men can book at the event to get a haircut, traditional barber shave, beard and mo trims, and mo styling. Men’s facial hair products, such as Mo Wax from the Uppercut Deluxe range, will be available for purchase, and photographers will also be roaming the event to take official portraits of stylish ‘Mo- Bros’.
This will be the first pop-up appearance for Barbero owner and barber, Karan Khanna. Karan opened his inner city shopfront only six months ago to fulfil a life-long dream of owning his own barber shop. The son of a hairdresser, Karan grew up in the salon environment, and moved from India to Australia in 2007 to study hairdressing in hope of starting his own business. “I run short of words to explain how much joy I get from lining up someone’s hair”, says Karan.
Karan will bring his signature motorbike to the market, which usually sits in his shop window, and will set- up shop next to debut stallholder and Barbero client, Braddon Tailors. “Style to me is tweed suits, old motorbikes, colognes and combed hair – I love that I can bring an element of this to the market whilst raising money for a great cause”. Karan is also currently preparing to enter the 2015 Australian Hair Industry Awards for the first time for ‘Best New Barbershop of the Year’ and ‘Best Salon Design for the Year’.
Together, Hustle&Scout and The Forage will present over 80 food and fashion stalls, live music sets by Kaleid, Yum Yum and Guyy Lilleyman, and a styled Live Music Lounge by April’s Caravan. Details for the event’s Movember page can be found at: http://mosista.co/hustleandscout.
