Owner & Master Barber - Ishmael Coye knew he was destined for a career in Barbering since he was 12 years old. He used his passion to create art not only on a sketchpad but through haircuts. Friends and family acknowledged that Ishmael didn’t offer just a simple haircut but perfectly etched hairstyles as a way to express the individuality and creativity of himself and his clients.
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.
