Chemistry in team sports is so important because it allows everyone to function as one to complete a common task. This unity of different personalities works in any area of business.  The Barber business holds true to this fact. From the moment you walk into a shop, you’ll know if this model of compatibility is in place. American Shave Classic Barbershop exemplifies this model. The atmosphere is light with a hint of excitement in the air. The clean, spacious work environment allows for staff members to reach their full potential in this comforting setting. A Barbershop is not just the look alone. The personnel must rival that of a Championship Team. There must not be any animosity, disrespect or selfishness throughout or the core mission is lost. American Shave has a mission that’s simple but effective. American Shave is not your regular shop, American Shave is a movement. This movement could only be realized with a Perfect Fit of individuals in place to carry out its mission. Let’s meet this team and what they bring to the table.
