Letter From the Editor
We’ve all heard it: If your dream doesn’t scare you then you’re not dreaming hard enough.
Consider me terrified then. In the year of 2015 , my mornings kicked up circus juggling of NYC bagels and iced coffee from a neighborhood foo truck. I felt an internal pull to pursue something else, outside of the music business, which had already consumed my life. It wasn’t until a couple random google searches and spa-like haircutting experiences that it hit me….I want to be a barber stylist. With a couple words of confidence from a decorated barber, designer, and dear friend in Brooklyn studio of “I’m not here to hold your hand,” it was just the energy I needed to quit my job and set sail.
My love for the hair business grew stronger as I dived deeper into the past. It was like the more I went into the history of hair and men’s style the more clarity I received for a bright future. I knew I wanted to honestly contribute something rich to society and if I were able to properly do that through self esteem building, then haircutting was truly my way. If a person was able to earn a date, get complement amongst friends, or get that job because of styling decision, those were the precious moments that I wanted to be apart of.
Building this brand helped me understand the power of institutions like the barbershop: where a man can evolve into a man.
