Born and raised in Chicago and growing up on the south and west sides, I’ve always found comfort in the atmosphere of “the shop.” Going to the barber every 2 weeks with my father was an experience that shaped my life. Every cut was an initiation into the “big boys club” followed by a trip to McDonald’s. Once in high school I joined the wrestling team but still had a calling for cutting hair. Some of my teammates became my first practice mannequins than I received formal training and Mystique Barber College formerly located in Broadview. During my 20 plus year career, I’ve worked in shops on the west and south sides of Chicago as well as in the west suburbs. Gaining a skill set with constant growth and specializing in slipper, shear and razor cuts as well as customer satisfaction.
I have been a barber at Hyde Park Hair Salon for nearly 3 years. I specialize in all types of haircuts and styles and I also do razor linings and designs.
