A story called Grand Barber
In the 9th grade, I got a haircut at my hairdresser's. As it is and was the custom, the hairdresser started a dialogue with me.
We talked about everything when it came to a crucial question. She asked me what school I was going to. At that time, I thought of nothing but becoming a chef.
She was slightly frightened and warned me that cooking is not a very suitable field. Then she followed up with the question: "And who combes you, Dominic?".
I replied that I comb myself. She saw the potential in me and advised me to go on a career as a hairdresser.
My mother liked the idea, and I also started thinking about this option very seriously. I decided to go for it, and so my journey began.
Time passed while studying, but in the middle of the first year, the burnout syndrome appeared. We all cut empty or did curlers, nothing I particularly enjoyed.
At this time, one of the teachers offered me a spot in the only barber shop in Pilsen.
The meeting in the barber shop turned out great and I was accepted among them immediately. I trained and learned all techniques for 9 months.
This experience gave me a lot of experience and I really appreciate that I was able to learn from the best. With the help of my mother, my main and most important supporter,
I opened my first barber shop at the beginning of my second year. Everything included, it spread over an area of 19m2. My colleague worked in the first half of the day and
I studied in the meantime. Then I came from school and worked until the evening. While studying and working, I also managed to participate in competitions.
I won the title of champion and vice-champion of the national competition „Kouzlo krásy“ organized by the Glamor Association and
I became the laureate of the entire competition. Everything started in such a fashion that in 2019 I opened my second salon, which is designed for the 1920s.
The Shelby Barber was ceremoniously opened by Karlos Vémola.
How do I see Martin?
For me, Martin is a great hard worker who pursues his goal and likes to learn new things.
