rob the original


It’s been a crazy artistic ride since the last Rob The Original update.  A lot of people ask how he became so skilled at carving hair, and he always reminds his fans art came before barbering.  So Rob decided to expand his portfolio. From pizza to salt-he sees art in everything.

Rob also found himself on Cedric The Entertainer’s Barber Battle where he battled top barbers from around the nation including the personal barber of LeBron James.  We won’t spoil it for you (Fine. He wins!), but Mr. Original left pretty happy with the whole experience.

While all of this is happening Rob continues to travel the globe with the Babyliss Pro team showing everyone his tools of choice, and why they have taken his hair art to the next level.
