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).
