I was born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio (Southside). At a young age I knew that I had a passion for the hair industry I just didn’t know where it would take me. I got tired of getting bad haircuts and decided to pick up the clippers at the age of 14 and from that point on I was hooked. I knew that hair was something I wanted to do. Upon graduating high school from The Rayen School I went to college at Youngstown State University. A year later I was recruited into the United States Marine Corps. I ended up doing 9 years in the Corps. I enjoyed the Marines but I felt that it was time to move on and pursue my dreams. So I got out and went to school for hair. Upon graduating I worked at SportClips where I excelled then began to booth rent at Pearl’s Precious Diamonds (PPD’s) stayed there for a year and learned a lot. After leaving PPD’s my wife and I decided to open up our own salon Lavish Lyons Ladies and Gents Hair Studio LLC. It went good and we did well for 4 years but to be the best you have to be around the best. Success breeds Success!!! That’s why I chose to come to Excalibur’s Barber Grooming Lounge. I feel like being here will take my game to a Whole Nother Level.
