Matt Horder, Revlon Professional general manager for UK & Ireland, says: “It’s fantastic to have an American Crew All-Star back in Ireland. Chris is an extremely skilled barber and a talented educator. We’ve seen his journey progress alongside the American Crew brand as an educator and this is a fitting way to acknowledge his outstanding commitment and achievements.” 

“American Crew is more than just a product company, we are also dedicated to developing people, which we do through our network of All-Stars, who act as figureheads for the brand and in turn create a strong community, which we’re extremely proud of.”

Chris says, “To receive this honour is absolutely incredible. It’s something I’ve wanted to achieve ever since I started working with American Crew. It came as a total surprise while I was attending my first American Crew Retreat in Barcelona. It’s still sinking in, but I’m excited to get going with more stage work and get back in the classroom educating. Being part of the team is an honour. My mind is blown.”
