How Emily Powered My Career

“I want to thank Emily Griffith, not only for giving us the ability and skill to cut hair, but also how to run a successful business.” 

Moses Lucero, along with his twin brother Michael, both graduates of the Emily Griffith barbering program, opened their own barber shop called Steel + Lather Barber Co.
