In this week's Spotlight we feature "Learn A Man, Earn A Man" by Barry Fletcher
Barry Fletcher has heard many stories from both men and women about relationships issues and picks up this emotional topic where Steve Harvey's popular book, "Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man" leaves off. While inspired by Mr. Harvey "learn a Man, Earn a Man is a heart to heart talk about relationships based on the compilation of 30 years of listening to both men and women confide their innermost secret struggles, desires and questions about the opposite sex while sitting in his salon chair.
If you ask the question "who is Barry Fletcher?" you're likely to get several responses.
One likely response is that he's a 30-year veteran of the hair industry who's won his fair share of hair competitions. You'll also get that he's a hugely successful hair care entrepreneur, with a celebrity clientele. And another response would be that he's a three-time author and one of the most sought after African-American cosmetology experts in the US.
It's all true.
These days, though, Barry Fletcher will tell you that while he relishes his legacy, his focus now is more on giving back to an industry and community which for many years has been good to him.
He does this by traveling the world sharing his extensive hair knowledge and by documenting his life experiences in a series of books- "Why Are Black Women Losing their Hair?" Hair is Sexual and latest, "Learn a Man, Earn a Man".
Late summer, Bermuda welcomed the famed hair impresario when visited for a beauty seminar. While her he chatted with Salon Magazine, and shared how he started in cosmetology, what his creative inspirations are the importance of supporting the black hair industry and, believe it or not, how the sport of boxing played a role in his life.
