Lisa Adams, Instructor
Hailing from Omaha, Nebraska, and being raised in Denver, Colorado. LB da lady barber began her career as a Social Caseworker then progressed into a Correctional Youth Security Officer III for the State of Colorado. While mentoring at-risk youth offenders for over 15 years, LB eventually resigned from her position to move on to other ventures. She wanted to continue to change lives, which led to her passion for becoming a female barber. The youth offenders inspired her transition due to the lack of professional haircuts given to the youth. She knows that with a good haircut and positive mentorship, you can personally feel better about yourself. This inspired her to accomplish a personal goal of changing lives with beauty.
LB da Lady Barber has dedicated over five years to her craft with the help of her personal barber Shane Cisneros who continues to mentor her with her clipper cutting skills, and her everyday slogan states…MCPR (My Clippers Pay Rent)! Within her 5 years, LB is a dedicated business owner, post-secondary barber instructor, Barber/Makeup Artist for FOX Studios (California) Hollywood actors and actresses, and a mentor to young adolescent males and females in the community and industry. She is currently working on releasing her line of customized beard grooming products to nourish the hair and skin. Her hobbies include watching and playing sports and games, with a glass of bourbon and a cigar.
