Craig’s VIP Cuts: 35 Atlanta Street, Suite 3b, McDonough, Ga. 30253 (770) 898-5795
Craig’s VIP Cuts began as an idea in December 2007. After 19 years in the barbering industry, my desire to open another shop returned to me after talking to one of my former barber apprentices. I took him in as a 18 year- old “thug”, straight from boot camp and the streets back in 1995. He went to boot camp because, like many Black males, he was tempted by the lure of fast money in the streets. The judge was going to give him fed time or boot camp. He made the right choice. He came in the shop looking for a a haircut but I gave him an opportunity. He had cut a few heads out of his apartment but no real skills. He did have the desire. To make a long story short, he turned his life around and became the best barbers in Northern Va. After moving to Atlanta years later, I got a call from my apprentice. He said he opened his own shop and he wanted to thank me for helping him changed his life. Little did he know, he helped changed mine. I decided to open another shop because of my 3 former apprentices; all shop owners or managers, who told me that this is what I needed to do; help those future barbers succeed. I have had many opportunites to open another shop in the past 5 years. My 1st shop in Va was a success; great location, great money, but I needed a bigger city. I opened another shop when I moved to Atlanta and we thrived for 3 out of 5 years we were open. However, being new to Georgia, I did not realize that I was not in a good location until my 3rd year in business. Fortunately, after advice from several of my clients, they pointed me to a great city and location.
Craig’s VIP Cuts is steadily becoming one of the most popular barber shops in Henry County and Atlanta’s southside.
