Always spending time in the barbershop atmosphere, Israel started his path to becoming a barber at the age of 16. Previously freelancing, he’s now settled here with us at Pall Mall Barbers New York City. Israel sees barbering as more than a profession, but actually a whole lifestyle – and thinks that the best part of being a barber is that you help people look, and more importantly, feel good through his work. He’s fond of classic cuts and fades, and is also a talented wet shaver – his strengths are with scissor work and the straight edge razor.
Israel has worked on a variety of TV shows and magazine shoots, as well as cutting the hair of a number of famous faces. He’s also taken part in multiple events and shows, and was one of the barbers on the first Movember campaign. In his free time, he loves to spend time with his family – and sometimes his son can be found at the barbershop sweeping up.
My favourite product is our Sea Salt Spray - it’s fantastic, you can use it as you would use a mousse when blow drying the hair.
