My name is Arnold Martinez. I was born and raised in Santa Ana. I started cutting hair in 2012 and became a licensed barber on February of 2017. Barbering became my passion right after high school. I started practicing on myself, my brother and close friends throughout my college education. I was determined to finish college and university before I dedicated 100% to barbering just to have something to fall on. I did finish college, however, I did not finish university because my passion, interest and love for barbering grew more day by day. I dropped out of CSUF, to fulfill my skills and education in barbering. It was a bitter and sweet feeling because my family was disappointed that I dropped out of university for barbering but I knew I was destined to become a professional barber.
