The Randolph Allen Story









The Randolph Allen Story



Randolph Allen began his career in the hair

industry at the age of 16.  As a young man

facing the challenge of working with barbers with

 much more experience, he made the decision to get

 ahead through education.  He attended as many schools

and training seminars that he could.  In just a few short

years he was gaining recognition as a leader in his field.


Randolph worked a barber for many years and

in the late 70's opened several unisex salons.

During that time he competed in many hair shows and competitions, winning numerous awards.


His true passion was the barber industry and

in 1988 he opened his first location of The Barber

Shop & Co.  The shop was a huge success and was soon followed by many more locations.  Randolph now has locations and franchises across the U.S.


Randolph decided to share his knowledge and

developed the Randolph Allen haircutting system and

 training program.  He then started passing along his

knowledge to the next generation of barbers.


Randolph Allen continues to offer training and education programs.  So when you see "By Randolph Allen"

or the "RA" logo you know you are getting the best.
