From a young age, Agan Eminagic paid attention to his hair and personal grooming: he felt that his outward appearance reflected the inward man, and he wanted to put his best foot forward. Over time, he began to realize that he could help other men to show their best as well: now he can do so full-time.
Michelle Lynn has been fascinated by women’s and men’s hairstyles for as long as she can remember. She’s always enjoyed helping others to look their best, and doing so professionally just made sense to her. Helping to run the shop – and her own chair in it – is the perfect outlet for her creativity.
Quality service is always in style.
As Agan looked around, he realized that he could fill a niche that is often sorely lacking in today’s society: personal service, delivered with the ethics of a bygone era, at an affordable price. Even better, he realized that he’d be happy doing so. With that goal in mind, he entered school to become a professional barber. Gradually, he came to realize that he wanted to do even more.
When he spoke to long-time friend Michelle about the rewards of delivering quality, personal service and the frustrations sometimes encountered providing service within a framework someone else devised, the idea of Collective Cuts – of their own barbershop – was born.
Quality service is for everyone.
Having finished barber school with accolades, Michelle now works alongside her old friend, helping their mutual dream come to life. The first steps have been taken: Agan is fully licensed and their shop has been in successful operation for one year. They’re working together to continue to forge plans and continued growth for the business, and steadily achieving their dream.
The goal shared by Agan and Michelle is simple: to create a welcoming environment for the modern gentleman, to provide high quality modern haircuts and other services at an affordable price, and to help their clients to look their absolute best.
