Why am I a Barber?

"I'm a barber because I've grown to value this trade, this craft, and this culture. But above all, valuing each and every single person that sits in MY chair. At the end, it's all about the relationships you build with strangers that become friends or practically family. THAT matters more than cutting people as fast as you can. Getting people in and out like a Machine... well-- that doesn't last.

I'm a barber that has failed at times, but that has been open to learn from it and just grow. Cutting out the BS and focusing on being me behind the chair and respect barbering in general. If it wasn't for the genuine people that return to you and sit in your chair, me nor any other barber wouldn't have a trade/job. We take that for granted at times.

I am a barber cause I want to approach every client with respect. Whether I'm a barber who wears a TIE, a barber who wears a PLAIN BLACK T-SHIRT or even just a Smock... Regardless, what speaks at the end is how professional you were and how genuine our service as barbers was .

Being a BARBER is about the people, NOT the money...

If you get it you get it."
