My passion for cutting hair began when I was young, just a student in high school. After developing the habit of giving myself haircuts, I knew I wanted to be a barber. My barber at the time, Gabriel Gonzalez, took me under his wing and began to give me the hands-on experience I needed to become a barber. At the same time, I enrolled in Barber College and by 2005, I was a full-fledged, licensed barber. I continued to move up the ladder in the barber world, working my way into one of the highest rated and upscale barbershops in Beverly Hills — The Art of Shaving. This is where I learned to combine my passion, innate talent, and acquired knowledge under the careful eye of the respected David Laureano Jr.
I opened my own shop in 2014 — Gentlemen’s Barbershop in Marina Del Rey. I offer an extensive list of barbering services including several men’s hair grooming techniques — basic haircuts, scissor trims, modern clipper cuts, fades and designs, beard trims, traditional hot towel straight razor shaves and so much more. I have clients from all over the world and from all walks of life. I provide a relaxing, comfortable environment which leaves my customers feeling satisfied and looking sharp every time.
In my line of work, if I want to remain current and effective, I have to be aware of my client’s needs. I saw an emerging opportunity to provide additional value to my clients with micropigmentation. Part of my passion for the barbering business is making people feel confident and great about themselves. I know that micropigmentation is another way to take the service I offer to a whole new level. This technique helps men regain their confidence when hair loss, alopecia scars, and even cancer treatment strips them from being the secure, confident man they once were. Completing the process of micropigmentation can give a man, not only a full head of hair, but the confidence needed to succeed in the world today.
