OWNER JEFF ROOZE BARBERS & ACADEMY
I grew up in a real hairdressers family. Initially I didn't want to become a hairdresser, at least not a women's hairdressers. I did my friends hair and occasionally helped my father and sister in the salon.
Next to that, I began a wholesale for hairdressing products. After eight years I started to get a little bit bored and I was ready for a new challenge. Doing my friends hair was always fun and also during cutting we had a lot of fun together.
After my graduation I teached for five years at the Barber School in Amsterdam. I also work as a freelancer for Kis Keramen and 18.21 and give trainings throughout the country. Next to the trainings and workshops in our studio for hairdressers, I work in my own barbershop with my super team with a lot of passion on a daily basis!
