Meet our Barbers
I began my journey with cosmetology in 2001. Since then I have enjoyed time both as an educator, stylist and now barber. My journey has evolved into a love for barbering and the craft of improving ones image.
My time in Portland has placed me in some great shops that helped me develop the skills to better serve you and your grooming needs. I feel that I have been able to take positive things from all of my experiences and I look forward to having the opportunity to customize a cut for you! I would like to invite you to visit my Instagram and see if I may be a perfect fit for what you have been looking for in a barber. My IG is PDX.BARBER.KENNY
I am a native Oregonian and have been in the hair industry for 7 years. I went to Aveda Institute of Portland for cosmetology and have been in barbershops ever since. The laid back atmosphere of a barbershop is where I feel comfortable and I love the conversations I can have with strangers or the relationships that can be built. I love everything from skin fades to scissor cuts and love scupting a nice beard! No matter the service, attention to detail is a must! When I’m not at work you can find me walking my dog, sipping a beer or hanging out with my son Quinn.
As a native of the Rose City, I have a certain affinity for fall days and rain coats. Over the years, I have held numerous jobs across a vast array of unique industries; but something was always missing. That is, until I discovered barbering. The passion I have for working with hair gives me the creative outlet I'd been seeking all along, and has become my third obsession along with sneakers and fashion. When I'm not behind the chair, I'm spending time with my wife and our daughter, or engaging with the recovery community.
After spending 20 plus years in the car business, I found myself hanging out in the barbershop. All throughout my life I have enjoyed hair and the experience of the barbershop. I have a passion for the art of hair but more importantly the experience of the haircut. The time spent in the chair is a pause on life where you get to take care of yourself. Outside the shop you can find me at a meeting, or engaging with the recovery community.
