Meet Jose Real.
“Being a barber has become like a hip thing to do now, there are so many younger guys that are getting into it. It’s all about style now. Myself, I just kind of fell into it. I started out cutting my own hair, doing my own lines. Then I got into cutting my brother’s hair, and doing it for friends. Eventually I had a friend who opened a barber shop, he heard I cut hair, so I got in and that’s what I’ve been doing ever since.”
Humans of Kitchissippi is a special street photography project designed to introduce readers to some of the people who live, work, and play in Kitchissippi. Each instalment of HOK contains three elements: a photo, a name, and a quote from the subject that reveals a little bit about who they are. View our growing collection of humans right here.
