End of an Era: Barber School.

If you’ve been following my Instagram, you may have noticed that I’ve finished barber school at the end of March. It’s been a quick 10 months, but I’ve got to say, it was a blast! I’ve learned something completely foreign to me, met a lot of great folks , and didn’t veer away from the goal: become a licensed barber and rule the world… Well, I think the last part is part of a different plan, but whatever…

I remember pulling up to the school to check it out and thinking, “Can I do this?” and had the want of driving back home and say fuck it. I mean, I’ve postponed looking into a barber school for nearly three years, and to suddenly find a school and show up to it? Yeah, it was scary! Of course, it’s always intimidating to jump into something so new such as barbering, and even more intimidating considering I’ve never cut hair whatsoever prior to! And being around people who more than likely cut hair on a regular? Man… Then you gotta think about you actually have to cut someones hair for the very first time?!?! Fuuuck…

But alas, I stuck with it, had great people help me throughout the duration of school, and I’m proud to say that as of April 8, 2013, I am officially a licensed barber! Now, I’m not attaching “barber” to my title, because I want my skill-level to be at a certain place first, and that won’t be for a good few years! Even so, I’ll be wanting my skills to be at a different place by then!

So, will I ever be “Jan Hella The Barber?” “The Rebel Barber?” “Hella The Barber” Shit, who knows!

Big thanks to everyone who has supported this journey! Grant’s Golden Brand, Layrite, Crown Shaving Co., Frankie The Barber, Chops Barbershop, each and every barber I’ve had the pleasure to meet and cut along side with throughout school, all my readers and followers, especially the ones who came down and entrusted me with their hair and faces, and whoever else I may have forgotten!

It’s been a blast and now my journey continues in the barber shop!

Until the next time…
