(TORONTO, ON – December 18th, 2019) – Saturday Life Recording Artist, Sage Harris, has opened “Saturday Life Barber Shop” in his hometown of Scarborough with longtime friend and head barber Akram Berki. In celebration and in the spirit of the season, the two will be donating 10 percent of all haircut proceeds this weekend (Dec 20 to 22) to Dr Roz’s Healing Place to purchase gifts for the children staying in the emergency shelter with their mothers.
“I grew up with my mom in Scarborough; we lived in and out of different women’s shelters. I couldn’t even afford a haircut, so I wanted to open a barber shop that supports my local community”, remarked Sage Harris. “Saturday Life Barber shop is an experience from start to finish, our guests leave feeling relaxed, and refreshed with a razor-sharp haircut”.
As an adolescent, Harris spent many Christmas mornings in various women’s shelters, alongside his mother and younger sister. A place of refuge for the Harris family was Dr. Roz’s Healing Place – A center for Empowerment and Healing. Knowing firsthand the struggle young mothers face living in shelters; Harris has partnered with Dr. Roz’s Healing Place to give back this holiday season.
Earlier this year, Harris launched Saturday Life Records, an independent record label to release new music and his upcoming debut EP – Prince Hills. Continuing with the branding, Saturday Life Barber Shop located in the suburbs of Scarborough where Harris grew up and blends traditional barbering with the latest trends and techniques. As a premium barber shop, it features a non-alcoholic beverage bar, lounge, and an in-house custom jewellery store.
The collaboration that formed Saturday Life Barber Shop stemmed from a high school friendship between Harris and co-owner/head barber, Akram Bekri. Together they both designed a unique space with a modern-day look and feel. The joint venture is a prototype of a national rollout of Saturday Life Records, infusing the music industry with a premium lifestyle experience.
