Phoenix Barber and Owner of True North Barber Shop, Raymond DeCandia, shares with us his shop and personal journey to becoming a successful barber. Ray’s path was difficult with many struggles along the way that he had to overcome.
His journey from serving in the US Navy to attending cosmetology school where he felt like a fish out of water. From barber college, which was what he truly wanted to do all along, and subsequently getting fired. Ray says it sounds cliché, but the advice he shares is “don’t give up!”
True North Barber Shop was opened in 2017 in the downtown Phoenix Arts District. Ray shows us around his shop which includes a painting by El Moisés; a vintage cigarette machine repurposed into an art dispenser; an American flag from the USS Missouri; hanging on the side of the lockers is a portrait of Alice Cooper created by Ray’s fiancée; and you’ll also get a glimpse of a legendary jackalope!
