Witness American BaBylissPRO Barberology legend Frank da Barber (@frankdabarber) in action as he joins globally acclaimed educator Barber Josh O.P. (@barber.josh.o.p) on the most anticipated Australian tour in the industry’s history. This exceptional tour, brought to you by BaBylissPRO and 4BARBERS, is set to make waves across Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, and will culminate in a grand finale at EXPO4BARBERS on the Gold Coast.

Frank Soto, better known as 'Frank Da Barber' (@frankdabarber), stands out as one of the most requested artists in the BaBylissPRO Barberology team. Renowned for his ability to dispel the fear associated with barbering, Frank's passionate and straightforward approach, combined with a profound understanding of the craft, has garnered him a clientele that includes professional athletes and coaches.

Originating from humble beginnings, Frank developed a love for barbering out of necessity. Despite coming from the Eastside of Orlando without connections to Hollywood artists or big concerts, he concentrated on understanding that achieving his goals required treating every person in his chair like a celebrity he once aspired to cut.

His prowess extends beyond the physical chair, as evidenced by his extensive following of over 140K on social media. Frank recognises the power of social platforms and has harnessed it to reach a broad audience.

Frank emphasises the importance of customer service as the paramount skill in the barbering industry. He believes that treating every client like a VIP is crucial for success. Armed with the best quality tools for the job, Frank consistently pushes creative boundaries, establishing a reputation rooted in individuality and reinventing the traditional approach to barbering.

Joshua O’Meara-Patel, better known as ‘Barber Josh O.P.’ (@barber.josh.o.p) is a global leader and pioneer within the barbering and men’s hairdressing industry. He is the co-owner of OP45, the owner/director of Barber.josh.o.p Education and the sole creator of the world renowned cutting method; The D.F.S Formula™️.

With a sleek, elegant style, Josh is renowned for his precision and efficiency in his craft. Striving to help people achieve their dreams, Josh aims to help barbers become the best versions of themselves, both in barbering and as human beings.
