The Real Trippy and Tim Dodd from Turnstyles Barbershop

Tim Dodd, Owner of Turnstyles Barbers located in Coffs Harbour, on the Central Coast of NSW, Australia, let us know he was going to bring over one of the hottest talents in Los Angeles to Coffs Harbour. He had scouted Timothy Wayne Tripp Jnr, AKA The Real Trippy, so we jumped on board to get involved.
The idea was to share skills with the Barbering community.
Trippy had come from the harshest of harsh backgrounds, and barbering had truly been his salvation. A very humble guy with ultimate respect for the trade.
Not only did he show off and demonstrate those amazing fades barbers all aspire to, he told us all the trade tricks and tips to achieve this, and afro hair fading skills.
Next was Roddy From Barberco demonstrating a perfect cutthroat shave, amazing to see Roddy carry this out so professionally when the whole audience came down from their seats and surrounded him.

Luke from The Bearded Chap came on stage to give The Complete Beard Education, using Jimbo, our editor, as a model. Luke ran through proper application of Beard Oil, Beard Balm, Moustache wax  and proper maintenance for your beard. 
The audience was engaged and asked countless questions.There were prizes and VIP bags as well provided by sponsors.
All of this came about from Instagram, how cool is that? Such a great way for barbers worldwide to connect.
The industry needs more people like Tim.
TIm wanted to thank the following supporters: Turnstyles Barbers, The Cutthroat Journal (hey, that’s us!), The Real Trippy, Barberco Barber Supplies, Norris Hair and Beauty supplies, TAFE Hairdressing Department Coffs Harbour, The Bearded Chap.
