Schorem (@schorembarbier)

Schorem needs no introduction.

Jason Schneidman (@themensgroomer)

Even if you’ve never heard of him, you’ve surely seen his work. As the go-to hairstylist and friend of Hollywood A-listers like Rob Lowe and Hugh Jackman, Jason Schneidman is a self-described “celebrity groomer/hairstylist/dad/husband/American-made enthusiast/soul-searching surfer.”

When he’s not busy with his celebrity clientele, Schneidman holds down his day job at the Chris McMillan Salon in Los Angeles.

The Feed: One of the reasons we picked Schneidman is that his feed isn’t all just hair! Follow this moppy-haired hairstylist to keep up with his favorite (non-hair-related) pastime – surfing – and adorable family.
