RYG: How long have you been a Male Groomer (Barber)?DSCN0056

EG : Professionally 19 years

RYG: Why did you choose this profession?

EG: I have always loved barbering, but I was working in a factory. Well, the factory had a laid-off and I was one of the persons let go.  After a while, they called us back to work; only to laid-off again.  Right then; I decided to become a barber. I signed up for school and have enjoyed my decision ever since.

RYG: What do you love about this industry?

EG: Everything! I enjoy meeting new clients and sharing life experience with my regular clients.  The creativity it takes to produce outstanding work constantly.  Enhancing my clients’ appearance; making them feel good.

RYG: What have been some challenges you had to face?

EG: Several years ago, I went into the hospital for a routine hernia surgery. During surgery the physician or his assistant hit a nerve in my right arm. Now, I deal with twitching and involuntary movements in that arm. Through it all, my clients remained faithful. I just thank God because the incident happened to my right arm but I am left handed.

RYG: What advice do you have for new barbers coming into the industry?

EG: Have respect for your craft and your clients. Give your clients the type of service you would appreciate if you were on the receiving end.  Dress with prestige and honor.  Give back to your client as well as the community you service.  Never stop enhancing your craft.  Have unity.
