Josue Romero first whipped out a pair of shears in his backyard at the age of 13. He wasn't performing typical backyard landscaping, though; instead, he was using scissors to clip and trim hair. His work has paid off, as he's moved from backyard barber to owner of Clippers, Trimmers, and Shears. With the help of his staff—who he personally trained—Josue provides haircuts, hot towel shaves, and custom designs to regular customers, as well as to more high-profile clientele including local radio hosts and DJs and even Pit Bull.
