Terry forged his barbering career in the fiery deserts of Iraq in 2007. Upon finding out that there was no barber in his battalion, he dove head first into the industry and with the encouragement of his fellow soldiers, grew in both confidence and knowledge. By the time his tour was up 6 months later, he came home and announced to his wife that he thought that this was his new profession. She thought he was kidding. He used his GI bill for school, and went to work on base at Barksdale. A year and half later Terry received his Master License from Vo Tech here in Shreveport.
Terry’s excitement about barbering is summed up with “I get paid to talk to friends all day and make them feel good about themselves. Happy customers feed me.”
Terry is a retired Veteran with 23 years of service in the Navy and he lives in Benton with his wife, Karen. Although it’s been a while Terry is also a Master Scuba Diver.
