Shop Talk Movement
As a barber, cosmetologist, NAHA entrant and educator, Rodrick Samuels has clipped his way to the top of the beauty industry. Samuels also is cutting through the unease surrounding colon cancer by partnering with Fight Colorectal Cancer and the University of South Carolina’s Center for Colon Cancer Research to spearhead the Shop Talk Movement, a campaign encouraging barbers and beauticians to start conversations about colon cancer while cutting their client’s hair. This program educates barbers and stylists on how to talk to their clients about colon cancer prevention and early detection.“The Shop Talk Movement is special because as barbers and stylists, not only are we shaping heads, we’re shaping lives, too,” Samuels explains. “People should be excited about the movement because it’s helping educate people about this highly-preventable disease.”
