Luke is shaving his head 💇‍♂️ Watch LIVE 5:30 tonight 👨‍🦲

Dry July Community Ambassador Luke Gibson vowed to shave his head if he reached $7k.

Guess what…Luke reached $7444.64 🎉

So tonight he’ll be shaving his head live on Facebook.

Luke had one condition, we had to have a ‘real’ hairdresser there to fix it up, so The Resident Barber will be joining us.

Watch along at 5:30 tonight.

Thank you Luke for all your fundraising efforts!!

My bf got his hair done by lachy today and by far he said it’s the best haircut his gotten in ages & he said for once a barber actually took his time on the haircut instead of just rushing it and made sure the haircut was on point!!! very impressed by this barber he is coming back in to see him 100%
JUST SAY.N HEH..
This barber shop is a Absolute None Fictional .. i
I go in for standard hair cut both barbers Standing there on there phones doing nothing .. tells me that they can't cut my hair because I have to book and make a Reservation.
( What a Joke) as I leave another bloke (tradesman) takes 10min to get a park and walks in as I'm out the front and there still doing nothing and ASWELL gets turned away because he hadn't made a appointment LMAO..
at the same time another guy pulls up and ASWELL gets told no go !! WTF that's ??
($100 $120 They just turned away)
as the third Guy (Tradie) not amused finds his way to his car vier the peak Traffic another guy who seemed to be the 3.00pm reservation shows up and has a cigarette out the front before attending his appointment while at this time the Top Gun Barbers (Bill & Ben ?) we will call them are still at 3.22pm busy observing scrolling there Face Book, Snapchat or whatever that was more important than 3 $$$ cashed up males (MEN) looking for a Simple Haircut, Either there working for the Dole or its a Cover for other opportunity,s or there the Stupidest Business Owners Entrepreneurs standing there throwing and giving money away as the Busy barbers gave advise as we left ,,
he Said"""
THAT THERE IS ANOTHER BARBERS 900mtres Down the Road (LMAO WTF), AND THERE OPEN NOW IF YOU WANTED A HAIR CUT TODAY ..
...
NOW AM I JUST A STUPID TRUCK DRIVER OR IS THIS NOT A NORMAL BUSINESS PRACTICE TO SUPPLY A PROFESSIONAL PUBLIC SERVICE IN THE OPPORTUNITY OF BECOMING A STABILTISED AND FINANCIAL REWARDING BUSINESS ..

Lauren and Tyler's wedding at Sault Restaurant Daylesford is now on my website here:

http://www.perlaphotography.com.au/sault-wedding-daylesford/

It was 2008. Lauren was out with a friend in a pub. The friend asked Lauren what kind of man she wanted in her life. Lauren looked around the pub and spotted Tyler, a complete stranger back then. She pointed at him and said: “Him”.

Little did she know that the following evening Lauren was going to officially meet Tyler, who was playing in another pub.. destiny, they say..

Fast forward 9 nine years, Lauren and Tyler got married at Sault Restaurant Daylesford surrounded by their closest friends and family and their 2 beloved dogs Cosmo and Phoenix.

The rain literally stopped the minute we started taking photos and started again as soon as we walked into the reception. Lauren and I looked at each other and said” it’s almost like the weather gods looked down and said: yep, now the rain can start again”

Tyler and Lauren I wish you an amazing honeymoon in Africa tracking gorillas in the forest!!!

Emma Morgan and Samantha Krajina are two women who greatly inspire me. Every time I've met them, I have been impressed with the community support that they encourage. By attending their workshops and events I’ve been introduced to a circle of Geelong’s creative small business people. #grateful

If these women put on an event, pay attention, you just know it will be worthwhile. The Great Geelong Story was no different. Some great snippets of advice shared by the guest speakers. On this occasion it was The Resident Barber, Bearded Bros & King of the castle cafe. Josiah started out in a restored shipping container and ignored his Dad’s advice to dump it and start again. Nik took stock of where he was in life and started this venture. His goodies are so tasty people can’t believe they are healthy. They’re guest staring in popup shops and flying out the door. Robbie started life as a ‘rat bag’ and hung out in the mall. Now he lives & breathes #Geelong while continually evolving his business. He shared how he copes with growing pains, he’s gone from 2 to 18 staff and may need a few more soon.

This nonprofit event helped raise funds for the #GiveWhereYouLiveFoundation and Feed Geelong. There were several businesses who donated towards the raffle prizes. Thank you to every single one of you for supporting this wonderful community cause. I helped by filming the event and creating this video.

Well… what a start to 2022 we’ve had.
Pakington street still at a stand still and the goal to have the container back as a temporary until the shop is fixed and ready.

Our First week back we had 4 staff off being close contacts we had to cancel/ reschedule over 190+ clients for the week. The 2nd week we had a staff off each day rescheduling further 80+ clients. Week 3 we faced 4 staff off with covid-19 rescheduling a further 200+ clients and lucky all staff were ok and healthy.

Coming to week 4 my youngest catching covid and eventually ended up catching it my self. Further more clients being needed to be rescheduled.

Not here to put government down at all by any stretch but that’s a lot of lost business and I’m sure there’s many more story’s out there.

This is just one story of a small business struggling to maintain its professional business with frustrations and also clients frustrations to not getting haircuts believe me we’d love to be cutting hair and providing our services but this thing called corona keeps knocking.

Please be patient with us. We are all trying to fight and battle this new way of living with covid.
Heartfelt shout out to any other businesses out there struggling with staff and the consistent evolving issues arising with covid.

Hope your all doing ok!
On the positive we’ll have a solid month of staff and cutting hair!

Much love.
The Team Resident!
