"I was coming into the shop for haircuts by my cousin, who was a barber there at the time, and there was an apprenticeship position available. I never thought about cutting hair until then. The apprenticeship allowed me to experience hands-on learning while also starting to build relationships with clients. By the time I completed the apprenticeship program I had created a full schedule of clients and was confident I had the tools necessary to cut hair professionally."
"My apprenticeship with Make Your Mark was a profoundly realistic introduction into the Barber Industry. My mentors in the barbershop heavily emphasized critical thinking and problem solving, while simultaneously introducing important and effective techniques to improve my barbering. Make Your Mark not only prepared me to enter the industry as a licensed barber, but also educated me on how to thrive within this occupational space."
"After moving to Philadelphia, PA, I found the MYM location on Main Street in Manayunk. Previous barber apprentices at MYM shared their experiences with me and in October 2020 the pursuit to obtain my barber’s license began. This apprenticeship has allowed me to build relationships with clients and through my practice they learned to trust in my ability as I perfected my skills and craft. Barbering is a fulfilling career where each day is different and you have the opportunity to connect with real people. Helping them look good and feel better about themselves is just the icing on the cake."

"Working at Make Your Mark for five years was a blessing to me and my family. I started with the company when Ardmore opened up because it was a great opportunity for me to further my career. Mark gave me the freedom to be myself and grow into a leadership role within the company. Through my time at MYM I was able to learn from Mark how to be an owner that truly wants to set up his barbers for the most success possible. Over the five years i shared alot of great memories, but my favorite of them all was spending time outside of the shop with all of the barbers and their families. Leaving MYM is bittersweet for me, but I will always be thankful for my time with Mark, the barbers, and all of the clients that sat in my chair."
"Mark was my barber. He (half seriously) asked me one day if I wanted to be a barber. We both had a laugh and by the end of my haircut I was asking him what that would look like. Fast forward several months and I had a chair as an apprentice next to him. I trusted Mark as my barber and knew I wanted to learn from him. It was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. I spent three years at MYM and it truly was three of the best years of my life, let alone my career. I worked with some of the best barbers in the country and learned everything I could from them. My favorite moments there were just the everyday conversations - from talking sports to everyday life, to hanging out with our clients. It truly was a great environment - one that I hope to replicate with my Florida shop."
