Old school barber skills reap big time rewards

Team GIBS welcomes Steve Vilot to the family!

“Write and draw your dreams on paper in details. My dreams have appeared. Over and over and over.” ~ Steve Vilot

Steve Vilot, owner of Sims Barbershops and director of Barber Authority is old school. So old school he’s been a master barber more than half his life. So old school he penned this interview on paper. So old school his small-town barber skills land him on tour with some of music’s biggest names. This husband and father of two sons turned a one chair shop into an 11 seater and we just had to have him on Team GIBS. Meet Steve Vilot, and grab a pen.

Describe yourself in five words: Dad, husband, barber, friend and sex symbol.

You made it to Team GIBS. What’s your secret? I’m a 26 year, overnight success story. Write and draw your dreams on paper in details. My dreams have appeared. over and over and over.

What are you known for? I grew up in a small town; I had to take care of everybody. Age, race, short, long, beards and shaves. I have found my hair tricks cross over; the real depth comes through.

What do you want us to know about you? I love to cut hair. I’m constantly visualizing to the flow. It’s a live instant art project. I was in the business for 13+ yrs when I was featured in Milady Textbook. Then I started working for the Art of Shaving doing popup shaves in store. Working in New York and Boston regularly changed my world. I was hired to teach P!nk how to do a fake shave for a movie in which she plays a barber. Next thing I know I’m on tour with Eminem... then Dave Mathews. It’s been fun.

Favorite GIBS combo? Hitman Texturizing Spray and Outlaw Hair Spackle. I do three to four sprays of Hitman and blow-dry… another three to four sprays, more blow dry. Then light with Outlaw. It rocks. Every time.

Tips for aspiring barbers/stylists coming up in the game? I have been gifted the ability to take my tools across the world because I put in 110%. Don’t treat this profession as a side hustle.

How you enjoying Team GIBS? The GIBS family is something I didn’t see until it happened. It’s Merry Christmas, Happy New Year AND Thanksgiving with 20plus like-minded hair professionals. It’s powerful.

Eminem, Dave Matthews… You do a lot of big names. Surprisingly, they have a hard time finding a barber to take care of the whole crew. That’s why the small town barber is a great fit to take care of them all. With Dave Mathews, I do 62 people, from Dave to the bus driver. With Eminem, I do 16 people and my favorite is shaving Paul Rosenberg’s head. Paul is Em’s manager and CEO of Def Jam Records. They take me around the world to do it.

What makes a great barber/stylist? Passion to cut, shave and style your friends. Everyone that sits in my chair is an instant friend.

You bring more to the table: I tour as a barber and I love it. I have two shops in my hometown of Pittsfield, Massachusetts and started my new chapter in October 2017, with Barber Authority Nashville. Stay tuned!!!

The sudden loss of my entire savings while trying to navigate the business of crypto currency investment struck home. Today, It feels like the online space is being monitored and controlled by these scammers who are only worried about the next person to defraud. They seem obsessed with reaching the tippy-top of the pile of souls, and they don’t care who gets squashed along their way. Even at my lowest point they still refused to confirm my payout, I never felt so betrayed and abandoned as i was struggling after becoming a single parent. The fraud company had gotten what it wanted out of me (free labor and a brand new future pile of debts in my arms), so now I didn’t matter anymore. I was hurting in every way, and nobody seemed to care – they just kept coming up with excuses and asked for a deposit each time . Economic realities + a lack of support = my inability to meet up to meet up with fee, I tried and I simply couldn’t hack the never-ending demands. Faced with the daunting reality of loosing such a significant sum, I sought alternative avenues for assistance. It was then that I stumbled upon a Crypto recovery firm J E T H A C K S R E C O V E R Y C E N T R E operating on Telegram under the handle @ J E T H A C K S S. Not seeing much option for me, I decided to enlist their services. Providing the team with some available details regarding my transactions with the fraud company , they launched a process to retrieve my funds. I had my doubts and edginess but at the end, the firm’s professionalism and competence was flawlessly put to very high efficient use and my funds was successfully recovered within the very short span of 2 days. This experience has been an eye opener for me and I’ve come to realize the importance of vigilance and due diligence when indulging in any form of financial investments, most especially in the digital world. I also advise seeking professional assistance from a reputable recovery service such as J E T H A C K S 7 @ G M A I L . C O M for those dealing with similar crisis, their services has proven to be very effective in helping people retrieve what’s rightfully theirs.

I just received a call from Ty that my final payment had been confirmed after months of being harassed by the loan officer. I wanted to thank the entire team at J E T H A C K S R E C O V E R Y C E N T R E who helped me in the recovery process of my fund, Each of you were so gracious and professional. I have to admit at first, I was a little hesitant and uncertain of the outcome, but after seeing what you were able to do with my friend’s recovery case after only a few days, it is very reassuring. The aftermath of My financial situation as a result of a terrible decision I made to invest with a crypto trading company was not a kind one, but you guys all went above and beyond to help me achieve my new position and I am so appreciative.  The process was as seamless as possibly could be and always communicated so effectively with me along the way.  Each time l’ve had a question I’ve been answered with utmost clarity and that speaks volume to the transparency level of your firm.

A few months ago I was asked to join an affiliate group on Telegram that facilitates financial growth for its members. I was a newbie in the field with all kinds of extra tasks in my life, I hesitated and expressed a lot of doubt. I explained i couldn’t invest with them given a lot of factors and I didn’t want to gamble with my hard earned cash. However, my financial reality to meet up with expectations and secure a better future for my kids was heavily weighing on my mind and so I reluctantly accepted and investing a little sum for a start… we got going and everything was proceeding smoothly which made me to really trust them and I eventually invested almost all my savings and I later went on to remit to the scammers what i had left in an attempt to clear some of the withdrawals fees. This has been the most mentally challenging part of my life, I felt trapped and confused about how to get my funds out considering how all my previous efforts has gone the opposite direction and am still getting tasked with more withdrawal payments. While I was on the brink of losing everything, I decided to confide in a friend, already it was clear to me I couldn’t keep this to myself anymore. well am glad I did because then I got to learn about J E T H A C K S R E C O V E R Y C E N T R E and that was how I got to recover back my funds from the scam group. Apparently my friend has had a previous issue which the team assisted him in resolving it so it was a lot easier to connect me to the team once I explained what I was dealing with. I wrote to the team on their official Telegram handle @ J E T H A C K S S where we maintained communication during the time it took to trace down and successfully recover back my funds. I’m really grateful we’ve got cyber security firms like J E T H A C K S R E C O V E R Y C E N T R E that can serve as a safe haven to protect us against cyber criminals, you can also contact the team via Email : J E T H A C K S 7 @ G M A I L .

I have noticed the rate of increasing fraudulent activities going on online nowadays most especially on the cryptocurrency markets. I’m still puzzled at how some people would purposely choose a deceitful line of livelihood and causing people deep pain and damages that could last them forever. Now that my crypto assets are recovered, I have more freedom and luckily am able to start rebuilding my life again. Today I thought about the whole event that happened and I wonder what could have become the outcome of me if It wasn’t for the Timely intervention of J E T H A C K S RECOVERY CENTRE. I agree that a big part of the reason for the increasing rate of online money scam’s (which people have identified in comments and in the article) is time spent grooming potential clients using their first initial payouts to solidify their position which ends up getting that person hooked and before that person realize what’s going on, they have already lost everything. After loosing my hard earned money to a forex trading company, I took a huge time out to properly research possible means to trace and retrieve lost/stolen funds while struggling to remain sane as this situation really affected me mentally. I have felt less of a human being because of this scammers and appeared to be the most stupidest person before my family and friends. I know I could’ve done better with my judgements therefore I do accept some responsibility for my mistakes so even when I contacted the J E T H A C K S RECOVERY CENTRE for support, I still was very mistrustful about the process and it’s chances of being a success. Two days later, the team proved to me why they came highly recommended as they successfully traced and recovered my funds from the scammers. Such demonstration of extraordinary expertise and dedication is truly remarkable. therefore, I highly recommend the firm to anyone needing help for digital assets recovery, the team is very quick with responses and active on both Email : J E T H A C K S 7 @ G M A I L .
