The class will feature Sherrod and The Wave USA founder Jason Kelley, to help the many men and women who’ve depended on their barbers for their good looks. Now, that salons are closed due to stay-at-home orders and business shutdowns in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia, looking fresh has become the thing of the past.

Now, more than ever we are learning to appreciate and value the barbers and hairstylists in our lives since being on lockdown.

Kelley and his business partner Fiona Crystal, founder of DIGITALDASH PR, organized the Live as part of an overall initiative called, Quarantine and Build. Since their companies have felt the effects of the coronavirus, their new mission has been to help the community navigate their day to day through this quarantine season. 

"In the midst of crisis, we are getting creative to help the community cope and excel while quarantining. This is a time to heal and reset. A time to learn. A time to build," said Crystal. "Things are now virtual and the idea of the Quarantine and Build was born out of that, a necessity to adapt to a new virtual reality."

"It's been an interesting time too, you know, to pivot and understand different revenue streams but also understand different ways we could add quality of life to reach our following and to the people who participate in the platform," said Kelley.

The Wave holds virtual learning classes and fun experiences for the community every week. To learn more, click here.
