Richie the Barber is certainly not the barber your father took you to as a child. This self-confessed nonconformist is a byproduct of what happens when an old soul falls in love with punk ethos.

Richie is not all about celebrities though. “My favorite clients to cut are the kids,” he says wistfully.
