Will Elmgren, known as The Clouded Barber, is on a mission to create a unique barber experience for his clients. With a passion for barbering and a dedication to his craft, Will has built a loyal client base over the span of 9 years. But he wants to take things to the next level and create an experience that sets him apart from other barbers.

For Will, barbering is not just about cutting hair. It’s about creating an experience for his clients that goes beyond just getting a haircut. He wants to create an environment where his clients feel comfortable and relaxed, where they can come to escape their daily stresses and leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

To achieve this, Will plans to open his own barbershop/suite in the near future. He wants to create a space that is not just a place to get a haircut, but a destination where clients can come to relax and unwind. He envisions an atmosphere that is welcoming and inviting, with a focus on creating a unique experience for each client.

“I want to offer services that go beyond just cutting hair,” says Will. “I want to create an atmosphere where my clients can come to feel good about themselves and leave feeling confident and refreshed.”

One of the ways Will plans to create a unique experience is by offering personalized consultations for each client. He wants to get to know his clients and understand their individual needs and preferences. By doing so, he can create a customized experience that is tailored to each client’s specific desires.

Another way Will plans to set himself apart is by offering a range of services beyond just haircuts. He wants to create a space where clients can come to relax and unwind, whether that means getting a shave, a facial, or a massage.

“I want to create a space that is not just a place to get a haircut, but a place to escape and unwind,” says Will.

Before he had this dream he wants to do, Will started as a Hip-hop artist with his group, Orbit X. While he was in the music space he collaborated with artists such as Sadat X from Brand Nubian, and also did a mixtape that featured known artists. He would also perform at the Opera House as well and a few other spots around the city of Toronto. This experience led him to where he is now.

With his unique story and dedication to his craft, Will Elmgren, The Clouded Barber, is poised to become a household name in the barbering community. He wants to create an experience that is memorable and unique for each client, and he is dedicated to making that vision a reality.
