About me

Master Barber and owner of Reginald’s BarberShop since 2008.

It all began one summer day when my parents, both in the hairdressing business, sent me to a leading hairdressing school in Brussels. When I took a seat and discovered what the industry was all about and all the incredible things you can create, that the passion for haircare was born. After four great years of study and learning , I proudly acquired my diploma.

Here after, I chose to achieve more experience by working at well-known hairdressers at avenue louise and Woluwé where I had the opportunity to work during several years and receive training by World Champions in the business! Following these fantastic years, I truly mastered the Art of Barbering.
With all this knowledge and amazing experience, it was time for me to start on my own. My dream finally came true to open my Barber Shop and create an environment for men.

To keep up with the latest trends, I join regular courses and participate at various competitions (e.g.: Finalist Belgium Championship 2009) Hence, I always welcome anybody willing to join me as a model on such days or other Fotoshooting days.

The Barber’s Pole (History)

The modern barber pole originated in the days when bloodletting was one of the principal duties of the barber and was historically a representation of bloody bandages wrapped around a pole. Back in medieval times, barbers even performed surgery on customers, as well as tooth extractions.

The red and white stripes symbolize the bandages used during the procedure: red for the blood-stained and white for the clean bandages. Originally, these bandages were hung on the pole to dry after washing. As the bandages blew in the wind, they would twist together to form the spiral pattern similar to the stripes in the modern-day barber pole.

The barber pole became emblematic of the barber/surgeon’s profession. Later, the cloths were replaced by a painted wooden pole of red and white stripes. Another more fanciful interpretation of these barber pole colours is that red represents arterial blood, blue is symbolic of venous blood, and white depicts the bandage.
