Who says you can’t start over and do what you want to do your own way?
After decades in sales and operations management in the newspaper, plastics, and oil industries I decided that Act 2 would be on my terms.
I’d do something I wanted to do.
Initially thinking I would be an art major, I wanted a creative field.
I wanted something social, allowing me to both interact with my many friends and acquaintances more often and where I could meet new people and make new friends as well.
Community based? Flexible? Earnings ties directly as to effort?
Thanks to my good friend Gabby Venturo, who went back to barbering himself after thirty years away from it, I decided barbering could be the right fit. Check, check, check, check, check. It hit all the marks.
Barber school was great. Great group of peers from all walks of life and all different ages and lifestyles. One better than the next. All creative and passionate about what they do and what lies ahead. A great and varied group of instructors that prepared me with the basics, good habits, and a ton of knowledge and then helped refine what skills I had. Some taught different techniques and approaches. Some, how to spot trouble areas or area that could be improved. Some reinforced the basics. A great group of instructors and I truly appreciate them all. Thank you NEHA.
I cut and shaved wherever I could get experience. I cut in the shop, at home, on vacation … on a beach. Friends, relatives, the elderly, children. As many types of hair and as many styles as I could. Thank you to all that showed up, especially in the beginning when the cuts were likely not as good as they are now. Your support was noticed and is instrumental in any success I may have.
What’s next? Becoming the best barber I can be. Helping to raise the barbering standards and expectations of clients. But not ‘just’ cutting and shaving. I want people to have the best products they can to care for and maintain their look and style. To that end, I have been continually learning and studying and researching. After much research (and not a little trial and error!), I’ve started blending my own small-batch high-quality beard oils, beard balms, a mustache wax, and skin conditioner / tattoo oil. They’ve been surprisingly big hits and have received great reviews and are being sold here on-line and in numerous barbershops and stores. I’ve designed my logo and have some artwork on my merchandise for those who’ve asked to support the growing brand. Again, its all very appreciated and humbling.
We’ll see where it all leads… It’s time to keep stepping up my game.SKU: n/a

Patent approved 07/14/2015
This is an electric neck duster we discovered at a hair show. It vacuums the hair off the neck, cape and your counter top and easily empty’s with a push of a button into the waste bin. We have found this ideal for use since the regualar brush type neck dusters are impossible to sanitize and talc is unhealthy to breathe. It is quiet, efficient and best of all it sanitizes itself with UV radiation every time you set it back into it’s holder.
The purpose of the hand held ClipPro system is to vacuum away small pieces of hair from the back of the necks and shoulders after receiving a haircut. The silicone heads are removable and can be washed with any kind of soap or bacteria chide then are ready for reuse. The UV light system in the holder sterilizes the heads when unit is placed in the holder. The unit turns on when lifted, shuts down when placed in the

The vacuum system is safer; it’s harder to pass bacteria from client to client.
A Barber or Hair Stylist needs something to remove small hairs off the back of the neck and face of their client.
A small hand held vacuum device (about 8.5 inches long) is great for vacuuming hair off of a client’s neck, and can be conveniently stored on the work station. In the Barbering or Hair Styling business it is vital that everything be sanitized and kept in clean environment. Everyone unfortunately does not follow this rule. Today some businesses use the brushes or dusters to remove hair from the clients, which makes it the responsibility of the workers to sanitize the dusters. Many Stylists do not comply. In most states the duster cannot be used because it’s hard to sterilize. The removable plastic heads on the ClipPro and the UV light system make it easy to sterilize.SKU: n/a

Beard Balm, Beard oil
Get Barbered Odin Beard oil, Beard Balm
After a lot of research, trial and error, and a lot of fine tuning, I am really proud of how they work and how everyone loves these scents. Try some. You’ll be glad you did.

This balm will leave your beard softer, healthier, and more manageable. Put a dollop in between your fingers and work into your beard. Style as desired. Ooze confidence.SKU: n/a
