Matthew MartinMaster 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.
