Barber relocates business to the heart of downtown
SUMMERSIDE - "I am invested in the city; it's a great place to do business."
That’s the message from Sean Aylward, owner of The Humble Barber, who recently relocated his business into the heart of downtown Summerside
Aylward hopes to gain exposure for his business through a unique music video series, The Barbershop Sessions, which are filmed on location.
"I want to expand my marketing from coast-to-coast and reach a broader audience, so I thought of doing the music videos with the help of my friend, Brendan Henry, owner of Minotaur Creative. Brendan is a branding genius, and he has helped me with my logo, website, video editing, and everything."
The Barbershop Sessions are an ongoing web-series featuring local and visiting musicians.
There's a common theme in the music videos that brings clients back to a time when life was simpler and barbers were confidantes of their clients.
"This place is designed for men and offers an escape from the rest of the world. I tried to design the shops with a more timeless then trendy theme, and where I help men develop style, and teach the benefits of using better products for their skin. It's better for them, and it makes them feel good."
Aylward strongly believes in jointly working with local businesses, in the hopes that they too will succeed, including being a part of the revitalization of downtown Summerside.
"I've had an overwhelming amount of support from everyone, and I couldn't ask to be in a better business community.”
