NAME:

Barry B. aka "TheStarsBarber"

Professional Title:

Celebrity Barber & Groomer - "The Dallas Cowboys Barber"

Background:

I am a licensed Barber for over 16 yrs. I started cutting hair when I was 16 years old in my basement. I knew right then that I had a gift. I'm very passionate about my career and I never feel like it's work. 

When you do what you love you never work a day in your life.

Do you have any product recommendations to give to our readers?

Some products I recommend and personally use are: Pomade by American Crew and Sweet Jamila by Xotics - Curtis Smith.

Where do you see your brand in the next couple of years?

With the launch of our "stars" barber lounge in North Dallas, and the tremendous support we've received I have hopes to start our own product line including: beauty products, dvds and more! 

What is it about the Dallas/Ft.Worth metroplex that makes for a great place to start a beauty related business?

Dallas is a wonderful place to open any business, my business partner Tim Parker, and I have only been here less than 5 years, believe or not, and we've experienced tremendous growth in that short period of time.

We have one of the best barber lounges in the DFW area, period.

I believe if your are unique and truly passionate about what you do, your brand will naturally grow.

What do you like do on your downtime? Any favorite restaurants that you like to experience in the DFW?

If it's one thing Dallas gets right every time, it's the food! My wife and I LOVE Max's Wine Dive, and who doesn't love the cupcake atm at Sprinkles?

Any last tips for local DFW beauty, spa and wellness professionals?

No one owes you a thing, you get what you earn.
