On November 13th, The Brooklyn Bowl bowling alley in the Williamsburg, Brooklyn was packed with the industry's who's who for the Fellowship Show—a first-of-its-kind men's barbering and grooming education event dedicated to celebrating the craft, expertise and inclusion of the dynamic barbering community. The show brought together the biggest names in barbering for a night of education, community, networking and inspiration amongst barbers and stylists alike. 

Matty Conrad and Sofie Pok wrapped up the evening with two edgy cutting demonstrations.  

Top industry artists and influencers including Mark Bustos, Sofie Pok, Julius Arriola, Kevin Luchman, Rob the Original, Matty Conrad and Richard Mannah took to the stage to showcase upcoming trends, while also offering entertainment and high-level education for attendees. American Crew, the show's sponsor and a professional leader in men's grooming, was on site with guest gift bags and personal razor engraving. The brand's Artistic Director, Paul Willson, was also on hand to show support and engage with the barbering community.

In an effort to reach beyond and bring good will, a portion of the evening's proceeds were donated to Bustos' #BeAwesometoSomebody charity organization, where Bustos and his team provide haircuts to the homeless and hurting communities here in the U.S. and throughout the world.
