Steve’s passion for good grooming began in his pre-teen years. He often came home from the local barber shop to clean up and define the lines of his haircut to make it perfect. At 14 years of age, the entrepreneurial Steve was born. He set up a barber shop at home and started bringing his buddies over for the $10 perfectly defined cut. Steve ‘the barber’ was in demand throughout his high school years. The entrepreneurial Steve completed his passionate vision by opening ‘MENtality: Fine Grooming for the Man’, a men’s barber salon.
