Professional colour house, OSMO is pleased to announce the appointment of its latest brand ambassador, Micky Graham. An expert in barbering and education, Micky is a self-taught barber of 10 years and recently opened his own studio space in Newcastle, County Down, named ‘Location X’. “I initially started my barbering journey at a local hair salon cutting men’s hair. I then started to book myself onto barbering courses with key educators like Menspire and Great British Barber Bash to develop my own passion and style of cutting and styling,” explains Micky. Micky continued his educational direction with the Great British Barber Bash and is now a Lead Educator for the team. He often hosts courses across the country and presents on stage exhibitions alongside fellow OSMO ambassador, Ollie Foster. It’s through this role that Micky started working even closer with key sponsors, OSMO. Micky loves working with OSMO’s product range to create his favourite looks: “I’m a big fan of finished looks using hairdryers and styling tools – unusual for barbering, but I just enjoy the result this achieves”. Having won British Master Barbers ‘Barber of the Year’ title in 2016, Micky is recognised for spotting upcoming trends and for his precision work. Excelling in all aspects of barbering, it’s his fading techniques that set him apart, whilst his energetic approach to teaching leaves students with not only new ideas, but renewed enthusiasm for the craft. “Micky has worked with us within his role at Great British Barber Bash for some time now and we’ve always been admirers of his work, so it was a natural progression for us both. We’re looking forward to embracing Micky’s energy and skills within the new educational programme we’ll be rolling out in 2022. It’s exciting times ahead for us all,” OSMO Brand Manager, Sinéad McLaughlin concludes.
