1) How did you get barbering?
It all started when I found a beard trimmer under my sink. I developed a curiosity about how hard the barbering was and decided to give it a try. I started with the simpler shape and ended up with a hair clipper to give full haircuts. After several years of practicing, I received my first pair of professional clipper as a gift. With these haircutters, my old hairdressers and the desire to be one of the best hairdressers out there, I set off.
2) What do you like most as a barber?
What I like most about being a barber is the ability that I have to create; create hairstyles, create looks, create fades and make people more confident.
3) What is unique in your barbershop?
We produce a high quality top Notch grooming experience for the everyday classic, trendy and fashionable man and his kids.
4) What changes have you seen in the barber over the years?
I remember the barbering when I started, none of the big Clipper brands had a 0 or 1/2 guard, just a company called Speed-O-Guide and it was a 000. Barbering has also changed from shortcuts to more Style changes haircuts and it’s amazing.
5) Where do you get inspiration from?
I get inspired by other talented stylists and hairdressers. Now every day I find inspiration where I look, Facebook, You Tube, etc.
6) How do you help customers find their best looks?
First, I look at the customer and notice what kind of hair they have and what options they have for this type of hair. Then I look at her facial structure and try to find out what suits her head best.
7) What can the boys do at home to make it fresh from the barber style?
There’s really no way to make this barber feel fresh, however, you can use your beard and hairline with a beard trimmer (like the one found under my sink), electric or classic razor, and some fresh care pomade to style your hair You can book with her hairdresser.
8) What are the top hair trends for men this year?
The top hair trends are combovers, pompadours, hard part, structured chaotic tops, undercuts, skin fades, low fades and high top fades.
