Master Barber

Matt left the corporate world in 1998 to pursue the art of barbering. Since that time, he has been honing his craft in all types of shops from small 2-chair traditional barbershops in Pennsylvania to the 8 chair full-service men’s salon that he managed in Alpharetta, GA – Papa’s Hair & Body Works. From 2001 – 2004, Matt also served as an American Crew Educator in both the Greater Atlanta Area and Eastern Pennsylvania. In this role Matt had the opportunity to teach salon staff about the benefits and uses of American Crew products for men as well as the American Crew method of cutting men’s hair.. In 2006 Matt’s path led him to Chicago – to Truefitt & Hill, the oldest barbershop in the world: “For over 200 years Truefitt & Hill has been taking care of royalty, titans, rising stars and legendary icons. As a new century dawns, the oldest barbershop in the world continues to provide exceptional experiences for men with extraordinary plans.” Truefitt & Hill (now Merchant & Rhodes) isn’t just a barber shop, it’s an experience; it is the best that Chicago has to offer.

Most recently, in August of 2012, Matt’s journey has once again taken a new turn. Matt and his family relocated to the Greater Raleigh area to be closer, more accessible, to extended family. Matt has spent the last 3 years getting to know the wonderful folks of the Triangle and building his business. He is very excited to be bringing that business to The Exchange and looks forward to continuing the revitalization of the art of barbering in beautiful downtown Apex. Specialties: Hot lather, straight-razor face shaves; current & classic men’s hair cuts; facials; stress-relief massage.
