TOM CHAPMAN OPENS FIRST LIONS BARBERSHOP

A non-profit barbershop run by Tom Chapman, the founder of the life-saving and multi-award winning charity Lions Barber Collective, has opened in Carnaby Street, London. The shop will help fund free mental health training for hair professionals with the aim to train the entire hair and beauty industry to bridge the gap between the communities they serve and the professionals/ organisations that can help those in need. Although 72% of those who take their life have had no contact with mental health services in the year before they die, they have probably had a haircut. Amazingly, 100% of the profits from this first shop and all that follow will be donated to The Lions Barber Collective in line with their vision of a world free from suicide. The Lions Barbers will be located within the world’s first men’s make-up store, War Paint For Men.
