Open Barbers is not-for-profit. At least 10% of our clients rely on their appointments being subsidised and our home haircut services operates weekly for people unable to leave the house. Please support these clients by donating to us through Patreon.
From December 2021 – January 2022, our small but vital Crowdfunder helped cover costs while the salon closed unexpectedly over the winter holiday season due to the sudden surge in COVID-19 Omicron cases.
In March 2021 we turned 10 years old while the salon was still closed under the COVID-19 lockdown. We ran a Crowdfunder campaign along with 10 exciting online events which you can revisit on our 10th birthday page.
From March 2020 – March 2021, one of our clients organised a Go Fund Me campaign to support our freelancers during the lockdowns and restricted salon capacity cased by COVID-19.
In July 2020, supporters donated £5,417 to Richard Houguez’s Crowdfunder campaign Help support Open Barbers & their freelancers during the COVID-19 lockdown
We renovated and opened a dedicated salon in 2016 thanks to the generosity of our clients and supporters through our crowdfunding campaign.
The School for Social Entrepreneurs gave us practical support and motivation to get Open Barbers going.
