We had the good fortune of connecting with bryan greg and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi bryan, why did you pursue a creative career?
art is me. I have been always in art, music, dance, dj, sound engineering, hair , paint, color all design choices. I cant think any thing out of art, my job is my passion.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
America, Land of opportunity, when I arrive in US, I find out I have more skills than just being hair stylist, I could create group of me , doing same field but in different level, that dream is impossible in my country, so I borrowed loan from bank and started. I create my signature hair do, and was wonderful. Very hard and challenging but came true. I shared my ex[experiences with my staff, at my business every one is partner with me, every one things its their business, its their shop, clients are family members, if any one likes it, will stay, if they are not comfortable they ll leave. The goal is a team work, no one can be individual. if some one cant afford our prices, we ll work it our with them, I donate lots of free services to schools around my shop, we are so passionate and dedicated to our skills, work, time and we put effort for our costumers. we let clients feel here is like home for them, we always use relaxing music, we are always quite and keep privacy to our clients and staff.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I belong to nature, if a friend visit in here. first choice is ocean, beach, lake or ant river around, some time out in park, jungle, farm in that kind of places.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
well, in my story and how I carried my carrier, I am the only one who picked my passion, but lots of friends were involved of my career. success. its a long story. I was a straight A great a student since elementary al the way to high school, then I started electronic school. My family friend told me hair is not a good choice for you , I could be a good doctor or lawyer, but doing hair was every thing for me. At the time when I was young due to my country law, boys and girls were separated at school, library were separated, even at buses, men and women were separated, seeing girls were extremely hard and against the law in my country ( Iran). I started doing hair at age 12-13, my family members were the first victims of my career, then my guy class mates and friend were second victims, at 14-15 I started female hair cutting and coloring, that became a reason I connected to group of girls, since it was prohibited, was feeling even better cause girls loved hanging with me and my guy friends. at age of 18 and almost finishing high school I had a good name at hair styling and coloring at my city and made hundreds of friends and groups since we didn’t have any FB or IG or other social media, my job was the only reason to have all these groups of boys and girls to be connected. I could say the credit should go to the law system of my country and all the GFs I had when I was teenager.
