OUR STORY

Hi it’s Vaan,

The first time I started cutting hair was in 1996.  After receiving my cosmetology license and working as an assistant at a popular chain salon, I began to build my own clientele in my parents’ garage. The clients washed their hair in a standing shower, sat on a cushioned stool and the only light source was a fluorescent light hung from the ceiling.  Since then, I have had the honor to work alongside some of the greatest icons in the hair industry:  James Morrison, Founder of Toni & Guy USA; Joaquin Regalado, Founder of Hair Salon Educators; and Anh CoTran, Celebrity Stylist and Co-Owner of Ramirez Tran Salon, just to name a few.

From a stylist’s perspective, cutting men’s hair using a pair of scissors is far more superior than using the clipper blades. Clipper blades have its own perks, but are mostly a one-size-fits-all piece of equipment and is too limiting for all the aspects of haircutting. In contrast, a pair of scissors has endless capabilities to mold and sculpt the hair, as if it is the extension of the artists’ hands. The beauty of the two blades when they collide together is so simple yet so intriguing to me. I am greatly influenced by Risa Fukui, a Japanese paper cutting artist who uses scissors to create art and has inspired me to honor the two blades when I’m creating hairstyles.

In the beginning, I didn’t pay as much attention to my male clientele, as the majority were female. Being in a salon environment that offered full-service, cutting men’s hair was just part of the package — it wasn’t a big deal.  Very few male clients ever mentioned their experiences at a barbershop. In fact, most of them hadn’t even been to a barbershop.

These were a different caliber of men.  They preferred the salon atmosphere and didn’t mind paying a higher price for a quality haircut. One thing I did hear repeatedly were witty remarks about the women they were forced to share their space with, which showed their discomfort in a place that was mainly catered to women. For clients who had been to a barbershop before landing in my chair, these clients told me the techniques I use to cut their hair made it more manageable and the growing out process was more natural.

The inspiration for starting an exclusive men’s salon came to me one day when a handsome man came into my life, who swept me off my feet and later became my husband. I was shocked to have met a man whose obsession for hair outweighs mine. It was then that I began to see the correlation between the artistry of hair and men, and immediately set to work to create a Scissor Cutting Guide that teaches hair stylists how to specifically cut men’s hair. Men’s haircut qualities are often overlooked and the stylists’ haircutting skills are often sacrificed.

The idea for PRESS Men’s Hair came from one solid foundation — and that is quality.

When I think of Press, I think of a man wearing a ‘pressed’ button down shirt…crisp and sharp. That is essentially the underlying quality for each service we give. A man deserves to go to a “salon” and receive an educated and tasteful haircut that he can be proud of.  If I can do anything in this world, I would like to change that standard for all men.

Hope to get the chance to meet you!
