Thomas Allen has been working to perfect his barbering skills over the last 7 years; after completing the Barber Stylist program at the Bennet Career Institute, and developing his craft in barbershops across the country from Cincinnati, Ohio to Washington, DC.
Thomas’ interest in barbering began at the age of 14 when he decided to learn how to cut his own hair, because he wasn't able to afford to pay for a haircut at a barbershop. From these humble beginnings Thomas continued to practice his skills by offering haircuts to friends in his basement at home, and students in the bathroom at his high school.
Thomas' hustle and spirit for the work that he loves continues to push him as he stays up-to-date on the latest barbering trends and techniques. He offers a plethora of services and is comfortable working with a variety of hair textures.
Born and raised in Washington, DC, Antwanetta fell in love with doing hair at the age of 10. She learned first by doing her own hair and then continued to hone her skills by practicing various styles on her siblings. With more practice she perfected her skills throughout high school, and found her passion for the art of hairstyling which she's now pursuing full-time.
Antwanetta excels at natural styles including Locs, Cornrows, Gel Twists, Retwists, and Hair Re-attachment.
Currently enrolled at Bennett Career Institute, Antwanetta is completing her education in Barber/Styling with graduation expected in 2022.
As a native Washingtonian, Randy's passion for cutting hair, and admiration for the craft of barbering, began when his father would take him to the place he most felt at home - the Barbershop. As a young boy sitting around watching the barbers work, and listening to the elders talk, it became apparent to Randy why his father enjoyed going to the barbershop - it's a place of community, where you share knowledge, ideas, and camaraderie. At the age of 16 he decided to pick up his first pair of clippers, and his journey to become a barber began.
Randy continues to learn and grow, now apprenticing at Exclusive Blendz under the direction of Owner and Master Barber, Marcus "Marco" Moore. Randy plans to further his career in barbering, pursuing traditional and non-traditional education. He is currently studying to obtain his license in barbering, and will become fully licensed in 2023.
"Being an integral part of my community, working with a great team, and having the privilege of creating memories for others at the barbershop is one of my lifelong dreams." - Randy
