Wes Heston is a barber with an affinity for detail and a genuine love for timeless cuts. Both of his parents are hairdressers, so Wes was essentially born with shears in his hands. Additionally, his grandfather was a barber and shop owner in downtown Louisville. Wes was just 5 years old when he gave his first hair cut – on his father. Later, cutting and fading his middle school friends’ hair in the garage was commonplace.

Wes has been a master cosmetologist for 15 years; attending school at The Hair Design School and Paul Mitchell. He has also attended extensive advanced cutting training with Toni and Guy, Vidal Sassoon in Chicago, and Aveda in Indianapolis, Cincinnati, and Columbus in addition to an apprenticeship under his father, Jerry Heston, one of the top hairdressers in the state.

Wes has been immersed in traditional barbering techniques for the last three years after making the tough decision to follow his passion and attend Tri-City Barber College under Steve Kennedy.
