Whats up everyone I’m dale, a 24 year old barber from new jersey. Ive been a barber for approximately 4 years now and its been the best 4 of my life. It has brought me many opportunities and helped me find my passion for travel,alongside many other activities. I started in the basement of my home,using a Walmart put together station.I eventually saved my haircut to turn my basement into an actual looking barbershop. I was only cutting hair part time for the first few months because my main job was in the IT field. I found my happiness and passion within hair so i decided to start anew and pursue hair. Throughout my 4 years i have done numerous guest barbering around the US and other parts of the world. I have learned from barbers everywhere and last but not least, performed haircuts in some of the worlds most scenic places. I believe in hard work to achieve and believe learning is never done. I am strongly towards the unity of barbers across the world because we all share one heart for the hair, which is why i love traveling for the love of hair and the community.
