How did you get into your business, and what motivated you to start it? I got into the business because I grew up in my mother’s salon watching her style. From all that time in the shop, I learned how to use the clippers and started practicing on myself and my friends when I was 13 years old. Over the years, I developed a serious passion for it. Someday, I want to become a celebrity barber and own my own barber school so I can teach people who want to learn how to cut hair and become licensed barbers. I have been licensed for five years in Pennsylvania, and am now working and licensed in West Virginia.
