About the book
In 2011 the down-to-earth entrepreneurs and polar opposites Bertus and Leen started barbershop Schorem. A place where men could be amongst themselves and where you could only choose between twelve different haircuts. A home away from home, as they call it. To their own surprise, their shop in Rotterdam grew to be an international sensation. They now make appearances around the world in halls packed with frenzied fans and have developed a highly successful pomade line called Reuzel, which is sold in 85 countries. Partly thanks to them, the barber’s trade is experiencing a global revival. In Schorem, the quirky craftsmen speak candidly about their turbulent youths, the wild adventures of their rock star existence, the art of ‘staying true to yourself’, depressions, stage fright, unbridled ambition, success and their friendship, which now runs twenty-five years.
