@kibwebarber -What started as a teen age hobby (ca.1991) to make extra money, eventually turned into a positive way to express himself artistically. He later realized that it could became a lucrative career.

Dale Williams (@detaildale) - I have lived in Columbus my whole life. I love this community and all that being a Buckeye stands for. I am proud to be a barber, I have seen this industry change and grow so much since I began my career in 1988. I’ve been an owner operator at Sharper Barber in Pickerington, Ohio since 2006. I am so grateful for the experiences, knowledge, and expertise that I have gained throughout my barbering. I am so passionate about this industry for so many reasons. It has afforded me the opportunity to successfully support my family, while doing something that I love, all while making others feel good, what more could you ask for.
