Christopher Triana brings the art of barbering to V Collective!

We're not always in the studio on Tuesdays, but we're always working on elevating the craft of hairdressing.  Christopher Triana joined the collective back in 2016 where he brings the art of barbering to the studio.  When he's not at the studio, he's teaching the barbering program at the Bellus Academy, as well as bringing his students to us.  A year ago, we decided to go rogue from the standard salon (an establishment where a hairdresser, beautician or couturier conducts business) and build a studio (place where people go to learn, practice, or study an art).  In light...
