For someone who didn’t mean to become a barber, Rich has been truly successful in the industry. Early on, he planned to be an airline pilot. He’s likely the only member of Detroit Barbers with a license to fly. He’s also owned his own barber shops in metro Detroit. If it weren’t for some vintage barber chairs he was selling, Rich might never have met Owner Chad Buchanan and joined the team at Detroit Barbers. “We hit it off right away,” he said. After 41 years, he loves working in the industry, sharing his techniques and learning from fellow staff members. Rich is a member of the University of Michigan Flyers and spends his free time boating and golfing.
