Hairstylist, hairdresser, and barber extraordinaire Jessica Alba was featured in the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter, which is published this Friday.
The magazine was the perfect home for the article, which featured a selection of photos from the latest edition of the magazine.
“I think the editors at The Hollywood Rep were just so happy to see me and the fact that I was getting a little bit of recognition for what I do,” Alba says.
“And that’s great.
I think it’s the only way to go.”
Alba has been a professional hairdressing and barbershop instructor since 2011, and now she’s also a certified barber.
“There’s so much to be learned from barbershops,” she says.
Alba graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2013 and has been training professionally ever since.
Her first experience as a professional barber was as an assistant to a man she met in a barbers shop.
“He had this thing where he’d ask me questions like, ‘What do you think of the hair?'” she recalls.
“So I was like, okay, what do you like about it?
And I was going to ask him, but he was just like, I’m not going to get a haircut until I know it’s right.
And I’m like, oh, that’s cool.
He was like that was a cool job.
So I took that job.
And so I’ve been doing it ever since.”
She also started working as a barber for a while, and even worked at a strip club in New York City before heading to L.A. to work in the entertainment industry.
“You don’t realize how much you miss it until you go to another barbers salon,” she adds.
“It’s just such a great way to have a great haircut.
I mean, it’s a very beautiful haircut, and it’s so easy.”
Albarb’s most recent barber job was at a show in New Jersey.
“The people I work with are just really amazing and I love being around them,” she explains.
“They’re so professional and so professional, and you just have such an incredible time with them.
So, it was just a really great experience.”
As for her career trajectory, she’s looking forward to making more barbers’ cuts in the future.
“If I could make another haircut and just go from there, that would be really great,” she exclaims.
“Because I think that’s just a beautiful thing.
I’m just happy to have this opportunity to be a part of it.”
