We Are Emily
“I love the students. I love seeing that grit in their eyes. And when they learn that little trick or technique to be a little more efficient and consistent, that ‘aha!’ moment, then it’s all worth it. I know, because I’ve been there.”
Gabriel Maestas, Barbering ’15, is the owner and lead barber at Steadyhand Barber Co. in downtown Denver. He is also an instructor at Emily Griffith.
