I have been a Barber for 28 years. With a Shop at home until my boys were old enough for me to work outside the home. I was a Barber at a shop in Pekin, Illinois for 12 years. My Father In Law became sick and I wanted to be closer to help when they needed it. The opportunity for me to open my own shop came on February 7,2009, I decided it was time. No Regrets and No looking back. I absolutly love being a BarberShop owner. The community has been very encouraging. what great support I've had from everyone since opening my own shop. I can actually say I am very fortunate to be loving what I do, and my customers make every day a great day.
