Barbers–the foot soldiers of the hair and beauty industry. We see them weekly for our favorite cut or a simple line up, but what is the story behind the hair? What is the hustle? Get ready to be schooled by “Barbers Inc.!” Barbers Inc. shows the real side of the barber industry from five high-end members of the industry making their way through the money, fame, and cutthroat tactics. In the infamous words of MTV’s “Diary,” “you think you know, but you have no idea…” The cast members definitely are not your average barbers and stylists, each of them comes with their own strategies and swag that make them more than barbers–they are artists!

Leading the cast is the creator and brainchild of the show, John “JD” Dillard, a primarily Atlanta-based celebrity barber with a knack for entrepreneurial ideas. His skills and drive are leading him out of the barber industry into the business world at large. Next, is the “baby” of the group, Lisa Torres. A resident of Brooklyn and a newcomer to the industry still trying to find her niche in a male-dominated field. Jamel Bishop, better known as “Mel The Barber,” follows up. Mel loves to party and navigate the night scene of Washington, D.C. just as much as he loves being a barber! Then we have Ashley Sarian a Los Angeles native and model, with a deep love for barbering and tattoos. Rounding off the cast from Louisiana is Ricky Zito. He is a shop owner, and only male stylist in a sea of beautiful stylist. Gifted with amazing color and cutting skills, let’s hope that will be enough help him steer clear of drama!

Bow Down B****es! Beyonce slays at MTV’s Video Music Awards!

2014 MTV Video Music Awards - Roaming Show

“I know when you were little girls you dreamed of being in my world…” are more than lyrics from “Bow Down/I Been On.” Beyond the shadow of a doubt Beyonce proved why she is the reigning queen of the music industry. Her performance last night was the centerpiece and closer of MTV’s Video Music Awards with an astonishing medley of songs from her latest album. Never one to disappoint, King Bey was truly flawless–delivering every note and luring you in like a Siren with her sexiness. She was the act to see last night and I believe everyone left satisfied. Clearly she is the penultimate bar set by performers everywhere. I am sure when megastars want to impress one another they tell Beyonce stories!

8/21/2014- “The Universal Solution”

wpid-no.jpg.jpeg

Hey Mikey,

Currently I’m overwhelmed with two problems in my life. The first being my mother. She constantly asks me for money, promises to pay me back, then scolds me for being a disrespectful daughter when I have to ask for her to pay me back. To further complicate my life, my boyfriend and I are so on and off repeatedly, that I don’t really know where we stand anymore. He says he loves me and I do love him too but I don’t think I wanna try anymore. Every time he asks for another chance I just wind up taking him back. What should I do to move past all this? I don’t wanna alienate my mother or force my boyfriend out of my life.

-Feeling Powerless

***Feeling Powerless, you alone are the most powerful person in this situation.  You should exercise that aforementioned power with the simple use of the word, “No.” That’s right there’s no book or law or rule that says you have to give your mother money or keep taking your boyfriend back.  The Universal Solution to pain is on the edge of your tongue just waiting to be spoken and fix your issues! Remember our problems end and begin with us.
