Chris continues to give back to the next wave of barbers as he is a barber educator for the Hattori Hanzo Shear Company, conducting classes throughout the Bay Area. He currently resides in Walnut Creek with his Wife and Three Beautiful Daughters.
Jan "The Rebel Rouser" Galang
Not too many people had a Pompadour as bad ass as the one rocked by the Rebel Rouser. The Bad Boy of Foster City brings local flavor to the Dogpatch Barber and Shave. He made a name for himself after gaining a huge following on YouTube with his many hair tutorials. People dubbed him as the Pompadour King. His Pompadour styling videos, as well as his Pomade review videos, have now surpassed the One Million views mark, and opened opportunities such as being a blog writer for the Layrite Pomade Company. Jan has since worked with some of the big Pomade names in our industry such as Layrite, Shiner Gold, Ruezel, Suavecito, and Admiral.
Cornelius "Sling Blade" Hankins
Master Barber Cornelius "Sling Blade" Hankins hails from the capitol, Sacramento, CA. The Veteran studied at the legendary Moler Barber College in Oakland, CA, where he mastered the art of the Blade. After a short stint in Oakland, he then took his talents to the famous Barber Lounge in the SOMA district of San Francisco, where he earned his way to Lead Barber. A true barbershop experience is what you'll get with Cornelius; a sharp haircut, a smooth shave, good conversation about any topic, trash talking, and jokes for days. Hence why he is the Draymond Green, the heart and soul of the Dogpatch Barber and Shave.
