Hello dear readers. I have been cutting hair since I was born. First practicing on my siblings, and later at school. After years of education and training, I was finally able to open my own salon with my girlfriend (soon to be wife) Lize and it’s been a crazy ride ever since. We noticed people needed more than just a haircut but also advice on how to wear different styles and work with different types of faces and hair. This is why this blog become so popular when we decided to help our good friend Nick dress to his full potential. Looking forward to helping more men out there with their hair!
