Chief the Barber


Hello my name is A. Robert Howard also known as "Chief the Barber".  I am originally from Memphis, Tennessee and a United States Navy Veteran.  I'm a father of 3 children, 1 daughter and 2 boys.  I first moved to California in 2009, after I transferred from Newport, Rhode Island to San Diego, California while being enlisted in the U. S. Navy.  In 2015, I honorably separated from the U. S. Navy and was awarded the title of Honorable Chief Petty Officer by the Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy.  Following my 11+ years of service in the military I decided to chase my childhood dream to become a professional Barber.  So in September 2015, I enrolled into Paul Mitchell the school, Costa Mesa for a total of 3100 hours of technical training in both Cosmetology and Barbering and ultimately graduated on Dean's List with Honors in Mens Grooming, Color Theory, Texture, and Haircutting.  I am a dual licensed professional in the State of California (Cosmetology and Barbering).
