N ot a m e m b e r ? J o i n at a s so c iate d h a i rp rofe s sio n a ls .c o m 15 the buzz The Future is Fluid Creating for people, not gender by Britt DuBose There is an amazing shift happening in the hair industry. More and more hair professionals and salons are transitioning to gender-neutral pricing, basing cost on time and product, rather than gender. But that's only part of the equation. What about our mindset and our creative process as stylists and barbers? Rather than basing our approach on masculinity or femininity, we can create for the person, not the gender. We can create a truly inclusive culture. Kate Warner @katne_sharpe Cut and color: Kate Warner Photographer: Pierson James, @piersonjamez Model: Elliot Wolf Kate Warner, stylist and owner of Katne Sharpe, focuses on removing gender from the conversation. "My objective is to blur industry standards," she says. "Instead, I create looks inspired by that human—looks that highlight them and make them feel more comfortable in their own skin." Warner was inspired by a cut she received as a hair model for her favorite barber, Sofie Pok (@staygold31). "I wanted to recreate the look in my own style as a representation of how I've grown as an artist over the years," she says. Shark Fin Shears were used to create the cut. The color was created using evo Staino. The textured style was achieved using Davines This is a Texturizing Dust and Cult & King Setspray.
