One of the aspects I love most about the professional beauty industry is that it’s a beacon for female leaders —from salon owners to brand upper managers and everything in between. One of these powerful women? Barbering extraordinaire Sofie Pok (@staygold31), who is gracing this issue’s cover. At time of print, Pok has amassed nearly 400K followers on Instagram in addition to working as a BaBylissPRO educator, and she uses both of these platforms to disseminate education and inspiration to her audience. To find out more about Pok and how she emerged as a leader in barbering, flip to page 26.

Want to attend a virtual session with Pok to learn how to incorporate trending barbering techniques into your men’s grooming appointments? You’re in luck! Pok is a featured speaker at our inaugural Beauty Go Pro show, taking place October 24-27, 2021. It’s not too late to register.
