Pope The Barber was born and raised in Los Angeles, Ca. She decided to become a barber right out of high school as she had previous experience and a love for the art cutting at high school events and local art shows. 10 years later, her passion has led her to where she is now; an international barber and platform educator as well as barber shop owner of Vatican Barbershop in Santa Ana, California. The creative culture of LA and everywhere she has traveled internationally broadened her neotraditional skills as she applies all of the various techniques she’s learned world wide to her craft. She is now one of the most well known female barbers in the world and hopes to spread her love and passion for the industry through continuously learning and educating.
