8. Sur La Route Bag ($215.00)

Cassie Kurtz, master barber, owner of Beyond the Beard, and founder of the non-profit Her Chair His Hair

“It has an adjustable camera section at the bottom, area for you to store combs, clipper attachments, clippers and shears safely as well as a laptop sleeve, two bottle sleeves, and a whole main compartment. I love that the weight distributes vertically, so it doesn’t make you feel like you’re tilting forward or backwards a la summer camp days. It’s not a small investment for a bag but I have zero regrets — I have used it for travel on planes, trains as well as the subway.”

9. The Philip Wolff Edition Zuka (set of 2, $64.99)

Philip Wolff + Alfredo Lewis, hair artists and global educators

“Our number one muuuuuuuuuust have tool for both salons and barber shops is…drumroll…The Philip Wolff edition Zuka! It is a lightweight, adjustable silicone rubber cape seal used in conjunction with the hair cutting cape that catches your client’s hair. The soft, silicone rubber Zuka cape seals help protect clients and their clothing from the icky drip of water or hair color seeping under the cutting cape, and the annoying itch of hair clippings against their skin. It’s even BARBICIDE-certified. This WILL take your client’s experience to the level of luxury they deserve in 2021!”
