At SHED, we’re not just about choppin’ it up and being punk rock; we’re committed to making a positive impact in our community. That’s why we’re excited to announce two upcoming events that are close to our hearts. Join us as we partner with St. Edward’s University for a day of free haircuts and an insightful discussion on redefining the barbershop experience. We’re also teaming up with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to participate in the Out of the Darkness Walk. These events go beyond just grooming; they’re about fostering connection, supporting inclusivity in our male-dominated spaces and leading in love.
Redefining Me(n) – September 26th
On September 26th, from noon to 5pm, St. Edward’s is offering its student’s free cuts by our very own Adrian and Andy. Right now they are raffling off times here and you can follow along with St. Edward’s Diversity & Inclusion events on Instagram. But the day doesn’t end with the cut.
At 6pm, join us for our Redefining Me(n) get-together and talk. We believe in addressing antiquated stereotypes and promoting inclusivity in places like barbershops. Our talk will focus on redefining the barbershop experience, injecting it with love and acceptance. We’ll share our thoughts on how we can make these spaces more welcoming for everyone.
During this session, Adrian and Andy will also answer your questions and talk about their journeys as leaders in this male-dominated industry. They’ll share insights into how they lead with love and promote an environment where everyone feels valued. In line, all are welcome to the Redefining Me(n) talk.
Out of the Darkness Walk – November 4th
On November 4th, we’re teaming up with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to participate in the Out of the Darkness Walk. This event, taking place at the State Capitol, is a powerful and casual gathering of remembrance, hope, and support. It’s a time to acknowledge the impact of suicide and mental health conditions on our lives and the lives of our loved ones.
The walk lasts for about an hour, but its impact lasts a lifetime. We aim to donate as a team, and we invite our community and friends to join us. Together, we’ll not only raise funds but also raise awareness about mental health issues. By participating, we can send a strong message of support and solidarity. Speaking from the heart, we’re so thankful you’re here with us.
Nothing But Love
We’re not just cutting hair; we’re cutting through stigmas and stereotypes. Join us on September 26th for an enlightening discussion on redefining the barbershop and how we can inspire the next generation of good men. Then, mark your calendar for November 4th as we walk together in the Out of the Darkness event to support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
These events embody our commitment to inclusivity, love, and community. We believe that together, we can make a difference and create spaces where everyone feels welcome and supported. Stay tuned for more details on these exciting events, and let’s come together to make a positive impact.
See you there <3
