Thank you to all of our clients, collaborators, neighbors, friends, and barbers for an amazing first month in business.
In our first month we saw 315 returning and new client appointments who we've already made some amazing memories with in our new space together. That number is not even including all of our wonderful new walk-ins from the neighborhood. We raised $700 for The Homeless Alliance on our first day in collaboration with the The Hair Cafe Cosmetology & Barber College and you all coming out for cuts to make that happen.
We have designed Oklahoma's first barbershop Artist is Residence program and are honored to have Rico Young as our first artist. Bigger plans are coming and we are excited to have his new solo exhibit this fall.
"Cuts and Culture" is our aim and we are intentional about elevating the barbershop space to be more than a place you get your haircut. Thank you all for trying it out and experiencing this new concept with us. 1 month down and many more to go. We are grateful for all of our clients and friends!
ROOTED ARTIST IN RESIDENCE: RICO YOUNG
Each quarter Rooted will host a local artist in residence. This program was designed to provide a platform for local artists to do solo showcases and for the community to experience it. Rooted’s first artist is none other than local sketch artist, Rico Young of Young Portraits/ Rico's Art. Learn more about Rico here and be on the look out for his spotlight event coming in October.
