In The Cut: Sheffield’s Black Barbershops – A Community Hub for Mental Health and Support

At the Centre for Equity and Inclusion, we recently collaborated with PgR student Macole Lannaman during Men's Mental Health Awareness Month on an event called In The Cut - Celebrating The Black Barbershop as a space for healing at Sheffield Students' Union.

At the Centre for Equity and Inclusion, we recently collaborated with PgR student Macole Lannaman during Men’s Mental Health Awareness Month on an event called In The Cut – Celebrating The Black Barbershop as a space for healing at Sheffield Students’ Union.

The event, in partnership with three black Barbers from Fades and Top Chopper Hair Studio and local mental health organisation SACHMA, brought attention to the vital role that Black barbershops play in supporting mental health within the local Sheffield community. These spaces extend beyond hair, fostering discussions on masculinity and mental health without judgment.

The event also recognised the importance of connecting Black students to the local community, highlighting the cultural relevance of Black barbershops. Beyond hair care, these Black barbershops symbolise warmth, support, and cultural significance, nurturing the well-being of our community.
