Nate Barnes

If Nate Barnes could tackle any Jeopardy category and clear the board, it would be hair. The Boston-based barber moved from the corporate world to the barber’s chair at 30 to pursue creativity, personal connections, and the unique intimacy of the barbershop. Barbering is my drug,” says Nate. “Every stroke of the clipper I have something to show for that, and that's important to me.”

“The first three questions are, ‘when was the last time you got your haircut?’ ‘Where are you from?’ and ‘What do you do?’”

“The thing about barbering is you need to get along with everyone and be a chameleon of sorts.”

Fuctional, fashionable, comfortable, cool.

“When someone gets a good haircut their whole attitude is changed, and I love creating that feeling for them.”
