Christopher I. Diaz is a Master Barber operating successfully since 1995. Diaz has had the opportunity to serve as a State Examiner, revised Milady 6th edition textbook for Barbering, as well as barber agent recruiting for the barber industry while simultaneously operating as the CEO of Elite Barber Parlor Inc. in the state of New York. Diaz is an innovator with a US Patent. He was able to master a way to protect clients from receiving bacteria that builds up in neck dusters used in today’s barbershops. He enjoys instructing students to become professional barbers, development of entrepreneurs, as well as giving back to the community through education.
While a native of New York, he concentrates and pioneers for healthy skin, scalp, and hair. He noticed that many men and women would go to a barber shop and receive a haircut only then to return home and shampoo their own hair with the incorrect products. Many clients dealt with certain issues, like oily scalp or even dry scalp conditions, and were clueless on how to take care of the disorders. Diaz decided to team up with two knowledgeable licensed barber instructors, Lamont Jacob and Sean Hunter, and a chemist who works with natural products and has been in the business over 30 years.
After constant efforts and collaboration, Diaz developed a line of shampoos and conditioners that would help eliminate disorders so his clients and the public; alike, could have healthier hair. (Products) He also developed a bump treatment that would eliminate the uncomfortable feeling of ingrown hairs. All of his products have received great feedback and are still in use today.
Diaz is no stranger to being a part of humanitarian efforts. Influenced by the results that helping others, he served as a hands on activist to assist in building, promoting, and supporting a barber shop establishment in Brandon Hill, Clarendon Jamaica. His newest endeavor is becoming an affiliate of Global Beauty and Barber Institute as an educator and project manager where he will continue to educate, motivate, and inspire others to reach their full potential.
