THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE TJ: Ambitious, Creative, Determined

TJ has been cutting hair for about 15 years. He found a pair of clippers in the bathroom one day in high school and, with no experience whatsoever,  convinced a friend to let him try cutting. It might have been the worst cut TJ has ever given, but it provided him with a vision. That vision came to fruition as Diamond Cutz. Upon finishing school and passing his cosmetology test, TJ got hired by the same school he graduated as a full-time educator. After teaching for about a year and a half while saving, TJ decided to make the most significant step of his life and venture out to start his own business, Diamond Cutz. Diamond Cutz is a well-establihed barbershop with a fantastic clientele.

Favorite Hanzo Shear: HH21-8.5
