THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE TICO: Funny, Outgoing, Happy
With almost two decades of experience within the industry, Tico has mastered various techniques from leading global academies. He has gained experience and knowledge from UK academies such as Menspire Academy and Ego Barbers and US academies, including the Vidal Sassoon Academy and Paul Mitchell. Through continuous development and dedication to his craft, Tico has perfected many techniques and developed his knowledge to become an industry-leading barber.
Originally from Brazil, Tico moved to the US at a young age and started his career in 2003. After working in salons and barbershops throughout his early life, Tico decided to open his very own innovative barbershop that differentiated from others in the industry. He believed that the industry had become too narrow-minded and thus did not offer enough for the modern man.
His barbershop, Invictus Barber Shop, was founded in 2017 in Coconut Creek, Florida. The shop quickly developed a reputation for providing genuinely awesome haircuts and gained recognition around Florida. It attracted many famous Soccer and Basketball players, UFC fighters, and other celebrities, all lining up to get the perfect cut.
With the business booming, Tico required more skilled barbers to join his team of experts. However, it soon became apparent that a professional barber was harder to find than the first expected. The difficulty of finding skilled barbers resulted in the creation of the Invictus Barber Academy. He began training his staff in his spare time and quickly developed a passion for educating young and upcoming barbers.
