Xotics hosted their pre-battle social at 9th Chapter Barbershop in Los Angeles. The vibe was positive at the eclectic shop as it slowly filled up with some of Southern California’s top barbers. There is an expression in the south called , “Southern hospitality”, but thanks to Ayesha & Parris (9th Chapter barbershop) I really felt welcomed in the city of Angels. I took a mini tour of the shop thx to @thebarberdolltheslayer and she told me to check out the vending machine in the back. I asked myself why is she telling me to check out the vending machine? I’ve seen vending machines in barber shops before. However, once I looked , I realized that this was a very unique and enjoyable vending machine. Let’s just say , I had no problems paying my money for the little treat. If you get a chance and you visit the shop make sure you go in the back to the vending machine.
I really like network events like this because you get to talk to people in your profession about similar subjects; things that only a real, true barber would understand. I also had the pleasure of meeting one of LA’s top stylists , @theegoogoo ; very cool sista! A few people like @successaddict from the Xotics camp came through to rep for the brand. Some more notable barbers that attended were @TheBarberDollSlayer, Stacey Kutz, JC the Barber, @GroomCity and of course Cutis Smith of Xotics. If you are ever in LA, make sure you check out 9th Chapter Barbershop.
