Earlier this month we were invited to RLI Connect with our pop-up barbers, in order to provide the full barbershop experience for attendees of the event.

RLI Connect took place this year at Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea Football Club, and as many of our barbers are avid Chelsea supporters there was competition between them about who got to take part! RLI Connect ran over May 8th and 9th, and we were kept busy the entire time.

The theme of RLI Connect this year was RETAILTAINMENT – and our travelling pop-up barbers offers exactly that for stores and events. We have worked with Facebook, Google, H&M, Footlocker, Hugo Boss, and several other high profile brands and retailers to provide customers with wet shaves, beard trims and haircuts at various events, customer evenings and store openings around the world to give extra value to your customers.

Retailers, leisure and entertainment operators, developers, mall owners and landlords and investors from around the world were in attendance at RLI Connect – all of them on the lookout for the next big thing.

With a theme of RETAILTAINMENT – the idea of breathing new life into a retail outlets and locations through in store entertainment and services – as customers are now more concerned with spending on experience and service, more so than buying new products.

About our pop-up barbers

The Pall Mall pop-up barbers is an innovative experience that we’ve created owing to the massive demand to bring barbering services to events and retail locations where barbering isn’t normally part of the service offering. We have recreated the experience customers receive in one of our barbershops exactly, through creating a ‘set’ that carries the traditional fittings and stylings of the Pall Mall Barbers stores, through to being able to carry out all of our services on location. Our well practiced and highly experienced barbers events team are able to deliver a high-quality experience at your event wherever you need us. For more information or to book our pop-up barbers please email us on info@pallmallbarbers.com.
