Interior and the Exterior Wellness Working Together
For more than 20 years, I’ve created barbershops that allow me to work in a space where I can bring the interiors and exteriors of men together. I believe the combination of a sound body and clear mind is a force-multiplier for health, wellness, and happiness; the balance we should all find. In a setting like a barbershop, people need to have confidence in my style, because I’m trusted for my wisdom when it comes to my clients’ own looks.
Your go-to outfit when you’re socializing is oftentimes your “go-to” because it makes you feel good, and it makes you look even better. Always wearing clothing from Buck Mason that allows me to create comfortably, and standing in a pair of HELM footwear are my standard. I’m on my feet all day in a barbershop, so it’s important to have grounding to pair with fashion that allows me to operate freely.
My barbershops offer a fresh take on where the exterior and interior meet. I operate from a core belief that balance is at the center of wellness. It is this perspective that is the foundation that inspires me to shape my client’s experience.
