Shane is self admittedly Tenacious and Picky. He pays close attention to the fine details, and isn’t happy until the job is perfect. This should lend itself quite valuable to the beauty world, where good looks and feeling great, are paramount.
Shane tried his hands at barbering 20 years ago, but for reasons he’d rather not explain (family commitments) lol. He left to pursue more stable employment and raise a family with dreams of home ownership.
Since he was a small boy growing up in Vancouver, before his family moved to the small town of Grand Forks BC
Shane can remember his father taking him to an old school barber on the east side.
its there where the idea was first planted. And after many years of thoughts and wishes.
covid-19 brought on an opportunity to change paths and rekindle an old dream of himself becoming a barber
& so in June of 2020
he packed a suitcase. Rented a room in a basement in Dunbar and registered at London School on West Hastings in Vancouver. in “Old School Barbering”
After graduation in January 2021, Shane plans to bring his special blend of services to the oceanside region on Vancouver Island.
The future is bright.
