Jerrae Lindsey always liked cutting hair. He found that out when he was 9. Three years ago, at age 26, he turned pro.
“I learned by cutting my own hair,” Lindsey said. “My mom used to take us to a neighborhood barber – Mr. Mort. Mr. Mort used to give everybody in the neighborhood the same haircut. He was getting older, and sometimes the edges would be a little lopsided so I would go home and try to fix it. I was always particular about my hair. By the time I figured out how to fix it, I fell in love with it and started doing my brothers’ and their friends’ and my friends’ and sort of became the neighborhood barber.”
