Learn the biggest secrets of the top and multiple award-winning barbers.

Barber Forum will take place on April 13 as part of the largest beauty event in Slovenia – Beauty Forum 2024 – at the Exhibition Center Gospodarsko Razstavišče in Ljubljana. It is intended for practically everyone; both amateurs and beginners as well as professional barbers. The program is designed in such a way that you will acquire new knowledge and skills or upgrade them further. We will also provide individual and very limited workshops with barber Saja Majstor.

Ross Mathieson (Great Britain) and Saja Majstor (Serbia) will perform on the big stage.

Ross Mathieson (Great Britain) by Trimužijat akademija

The owner and founder of the Son of The Bear salon and head of the barber academy comes to Slovenia with an extremely inspiring story. At the age of 29, he left a promising career in engineering because he felt it wasn’t perfecting him and became a barber. “I’ve been passionate about barbering since I was seventeen, but it was always on the sidelines. It wasn’t until my girlfriend encouraged me to become a barber that I took the plunge and never looked back. You’re never too old to retrain or change careers!” believes Mathieson. In a short time he became an exceptional master, among other things he can boast of:

  • Winner: British Barber Hall of Fame
  • Winner: Salon awards – barber of the year
  • Finalist: Josh op international awards – career progression winner – long hair & editorial image
  • Finalist: Pro World Series barber of the year
  • Finalist (2021-2023): British master barber – barber of the year

You can expect him to share his wealth of knowledge with you and inspire you with his passion for barbering. But beware! Maybe his short jokes will make your abs hurt 🙂
