Hi! I’ve been lucky enough to be with 18|8 since January of 2016. I love that there’s always something new and exciting to learn about this wonderful industry. Working with my amazing team is a HUGE plus!
Hi Guys! My name is Kelly. I’m Originally from England, but moved to USA in 2011 (Yes, I still have the accent!)
I’ve been in the Beauty industry for 18 years, and have been with 18|8 for 5 years.
My favorite part about working at 18|8 is watching before and after transformations, and experiencing how confident our Guests leave!
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 3 daughters. We’re huge Super hero fans, and always look forward to Comic Con. I also devote my time to Autism awareness, as I was blessed to have a daughter on the Spectrum!
Brittany Master Barber
While I currently reside in San Diego, I actually have dual citizenship in England & America, having spent many years in both countries.
I have always had an interest in doing hair. Both my maternal & paternal grandmothers were hairdressers so I like to believe it’s in my blood. While they primarily did women’s hair, however, I have always felt a draw towards barbering. I am a licensed cosmetologist as well as a licensed barber, but my passion truly lies in men’s grooming. Once I got my hands on the straight razor I never looked back.
My favorite products are the Clay by Esquire & practically the entire Reuzel line, especially their shave cream! The clay has a really cool creamy consistency to it & it’s really easy to work into the hair, providing a matte finish, good amount of hold, & you never get clumps of product in your hair. The Reuzel shaving cream is phenomenal. It’s not too thick & provides a really smooth glide for your razor. I use it for all of my straight razor shave clients.
In my spare time I like to play piano & I am an avid reader. I also love to travel & experience different cultures all over the world.
Hi, I’m Ziri! I’ve been in the hair industry for 8 years, and with 18|8 since 2016. My favorite line to work with is Reuzel, as it has the perfect product for any type of hair. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and gardening. I look forward to help you look your best!

Hi, I’m Tina! I’ve been working in the hair industry since 1994. My passion is transformations. Whether it’s a fun color, or complete hair style change, i’d love to accomplish your goals! I look forward to seeing you soon!
Hi, my name is Jarred. I’m from the San Francisco Bay Area and I’ve been in the industry since 2017. I specialize in straight razor shaves and men’s haircuts.
I love using the Reuzel product line for my clients because it’s created for barbers by barbers and has a solution for every hair style and type. My favorite men’s style is the classic gentleman’s cut because it’s versatile and looks great on anyone. Straight razor shaves are my true passion though because it’s an art form in itself and sets barbers apart from the rest of the hair industry.
When I’m not cutting hair, I enjoy spending time with my family or playing video games.
Hi there! My name is Cameron, I’ve been in the hair industry for a 7 years. At the moment, one of the styles I like the most is the mullet, so much fun! One of my favorite products is the Clay Matte Pomade from Reuzel! Glad to be part of the team!
Makena Jo Center Stylist / Barber
Hello! I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist since 2016 and a licensed barber since 2018. I love cutting & styling hair because I know how a great haircut has the power to make you more confident and feel like you can accomplish anything! Art is my passion whether it be with a paint brush or a pair of scissors and I would love to make your haircut a masterpiece. Making sure you’re happy with your style is my top priority so I’ll ask many questions in order to give you the haircut you’ve been hoping for. My favorite haircuts are: Mullets, Mohawks and doing shaved designs ( numbers, letters, symbols, etc) My favorite products so far are the leave in conditioner by Unite and the Styling Cream by Go 24-7. The combination makes a great styling cocktail for a light hold that you can run your fingers through. I look forward to working with you soon!
Hey y’all! My name is Faith and I’ve been in the hair industry since 2010. I was born and raised right here in beautiful San Diego. I am dual licensed as a Barber/Cosmologist and was an educator at Bellus Academy in Poway.
My favorite haircut to do is a nice clean mullet faded on the sides. I love the process of blending and fading the hair. I enjoy texturized styles as well. I always make sure to listen to what the clients wants and needs are in order to provide the best service!
In my free time I enjoy tending to my houseplants and birdwatching with my wife.
Hey! My name is Taryn and Ive been a Barber since 2020. One of my favorite haircuts is a classic gentlemen’s cut with a modern twist. Fades, tapers, and textured cuts to name a few. Straight razor shaves are the main reason I became a Barber. Any day I’m doing a shave for a guest is a great day in my books. My favorite part of being a barber is getting to make a connection with my clients and show them their hairs greatest potential! When I’m not in the Barbershop, I love trying new coffee shops and going to Disneyland with my wife. See y’all in the chair!
Hi, I’m Gia. I’ve been in the hair industry since 1998. I trained with Sasson and Toni & Guy. Something I love about this industry is it is always changing, and there is always something new to learn – With knowledge comes growth. The only time success comes before work is in the dictionary. My favorite haircut is a classic business man’s haircut… it’s timeless! When I am not behind the chair, I like to spend time with my family. My favorite kind of day is being away from the city and either in nature or out on a ranch surrounded by horses.
With a professional journey dating back to 2011, I bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the hair industry. Specializing in handcrafted haircuts, my passion lies in the timeless artistry of classic styles. I thrive on sculpting head silhouettes that achieve balance and enhance the natural features of my clients. Beyond skill, I find joy in fostering genuine connections with each individual, making every visit an enjoyable and personalized experience.
