Nybro barber appointed People’s Hairdresser
The Barber of the Year competition was canceled last autumn and the corona restrictions made the organizers think again. This resulted in a completely new competition concept that was Covid-19 safe. The barbers competed in their own barbershop on a rock head instead of a model, and the competition entry was sent in as a photo. This is how it was important to not only think about hair and hairstyle but also photography and how to communicate a vision in pictures and social media.
There were 76 barbers who signed up. And it was Ali Alahmad and who runs the hairdressing salon Troy Salon in Nybro who was chosen as the People’s hairdresser and also came second in the class Barber of the Year.
Come with the big wave of refugees in 2015
It is only six years since he came to Sweden. He brought the big wave of refugees in 2015 and already after only one year he opened his hair salon in Nybro. Since then he has another salon in Kalmar and today he has six employees.
During the trip I was awarded the barber of the year 2018, participated in Barber battle 2018, reached the semifinals of the barber competition 2019 and now I finally got the best award a hairdresser can get, namely when I was chosen by the people to win the competition Head2Head Barber Challenge 2021 as peoples choise. After five years in Sweden, I can not say more than a big thank you to the first Sweden who opened the door for me and gave me new opportunities to realize my dreams but also to you out there who visit Troys Salon, he says.
