Zerogapped is a barbering magazine for all the female barbers of the world.
ZEROGapped aspires to provide those in the industry who feel that for whatever reason, the current platforms available do not provide them with the freedom of self-expression. We aim to offer this in an unbiased and supportive manner whilst recognising that in our commonality of work different groups often experience different issues.
In the interest of equality and diversity, ZEROGapped feels that opinions and debate from all should be respected and valued, however, all content will be reviewed and any messages considered offensive will not be published.
This magazine is the brainchild of Ruby a previous editor and publisher, she saw a gap in the market for a barbering magazine just for women who cut short hair and rock it in style.
I trained as a Hairdresser upon leaving school at 15, training with the John English Group, entering various competitions and being awarded ‘Hairdresser Of The Year’ judged by Jingles In London.
I fell Into Sales & Marketing at 19 years old within the Publishing Industry and there I remained working for many Blue Chip organisations and clients for 28 years.
I decided I wanted to combine my skills and so I set about studying with TPG Education http://www.tpgeducation.co.uk/ In Manchester, where I completed a VTCT L2 In Barbering https://www.vtct.org.uk/qualification-category/hairdressing-barbering/
I advanced pretty quickly as I had already previous training under my belt and off I went to get the shop floor experience I needed to perfect the craft.
I have worked at numerous Barbershops and I started my own Pop-Up Barber Business 2 years ago https://www.facebook.com/femaleonlybarber/ where I operate at Pride & LGBTQ Festivals & Events across the UK Barbering for women!! This has been a roaring success and even more following the ever-popular TV Series, Gentleman Jack!! I have appeared on Radio, stage etc and various organised events.
A bit about me but now It’s all about you … the reader and I hope you enjoy ZEROGapped as much as I’ve enjoyed bringing It to life!!
Happy Barbering ✂️
