The Barber Disinfectant Barber spotlight is about featuring barbers who look to stay ahead of trends and pioneer the way for new ideas and looks. These barbers and their shops always have their finger on the pulse of the industry. This week’s spotlight is Yvette Bagley a veteran barber from the great state of Texas. She represents a barber shop with 6 locations that stays up on current trends and caters to men’s haircuts. Diesel Barbershop in San Antonio has 6 barbershop locations and they all use Mod Clean Barber Disinfectant. Here is how it has changed barber disinfecting for them.
22 years ago if someone would have told me that I’d still be in the barber industry, I would not have believed them. I’ve been through many challenges and different shops along the way, but dedication and loyalty are my strong points so that’s what helped me throughout my career. My name is Yvette Bagley and I have been a licensed cosmetologist since 1995. I am licensed to do hair in Texas and Arizona. I can definitely say that the rules for disinfection in both States are VERY strict. I take pride in making sure all of my customers are safe from infectious diseases and anything that can affect their health. In my 22 years of disinfecting and sterilizing my brushes and combs, I always used liquid disinfectant. It was the only thing available and all I knew to use. However, it’s crazy how much you can waste by not measuring it before you put it in the jar. I used to work in this one shop where they would not let you use a liquid disinfectant jar. I had to put all of my combs along with everyone else’s combs in one huge plastic box in the back of the shop. It was disgusting, to say the least! Fortunately, I no longer work in a shop like that. In 2014, I found the most amazing barbershop to work at ever! Diesel Barbershop in San Antonio, Texas is a combination of barbershop, salon and part arcade. Yes, I said arcade! It’s like the ultimate man cave to get your haircut while you have a beer to relax, chill and hangout! My co-workers and I are all about diesel. We’re always on the lookout for new and innovative ways to keep our shop clean and safe for our clients.So, when I came across Mod Clean on Instagram, I decided to buy one bag to try it out. I introduced it to my general manager and the owner of Diesel barbershop. They asked me to get feedback from everyone to see how they liked it and BOOM!!! Game Changer!! Everyone loved it! After we figured out that one bag of Mod Clean Barber Disinfectant fills 32 jars and saves money compared to the clunky 64 oz. bottles of liquid disinfectant, we ordered Mod Clean for all six diesel barbershop locations! The staff loves the simplicity of putting in one Mod Clean Barber Disinfectant Pod in their disinfectant jar, wait till the bubbles come up, mix it with the lid and that’s it! Perfectly measured every time with no mess. No waste. Literally saving you time and money. Because you know in our industry, time is money.Thank you to the inventors and creators of Mod Clean for impressing me after 22 years in the barber/ beauty industry! You guys ROCK!!
