iCandy Scissors Australia Appoints Lance Liufau as ICANDY SCISSORS ALLSTAR GLOBAL EDUCATOR 2020.
Biography: Here's the Word on Lance,
Lance is a 36-year old New Zealander born of Samoan Chinese ethnicity, a father, husband, art lover and barber.
He grew up in West Auckland for the first 19 years of his life and has spent the last 17 years living in Brisbane, where Lance’s barbering career began in 2005.
Lance started cutting in a barbershop in the heart of the Logan Area and has worked in and around the greater parts of Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
About seven years ago Lance became interested in sharing his knowledge and skill set with others to assist those wishing to gain more from their profession and learn techniques to use in their day-to-day work. He organised his first workshop in 2013 and since then Lance has shared his knowledge with many barbers at various events and education sessions.
Fast forward to today, Lance has performed stage work at HairBiz Forum, Hair Expo and the Brisbane Hair & Beauty Expo every year since 2014. He’s worked with, and performed workshops for, various companies such as Wahl Australia, De Lorenzo, Paul Mitchell as well as a range of wholesale distributors.
Lance is currently one of three owners of The Loft Barbershop (Australia), the former Editor of Barbershop Magazine and is also a former Wahl Education & Artistic Team Member and an iCandy Scissors Ambassador since 2016.
One accomplishment that Lance is proud of is having organised a 24-hour cutting event for Men’s Mental Health in November 2018. It was open to all barbers who wanted to help, and Lance is proud to say that the barbering industry came together for a great cause and raised both funds and awareness.
