Emily Knecht, a Hazleton graduate of Jolie Health and Beauty Academy, is now the proud owner of Emmy’s Barbershop in Millville, PA! We caught up with Emily to talk about what inspired her to become a barber and what life has been like since graduating from the barber program at Jolie.
Emily was inspired to become a barber because she wanted to make men feel confident and proud about their appearance. She also wanted to focus more on cutting than chemical services. What really caught Emily’s attention was the amount of styles you can do using just a clipper and comb.
She wanted to open up her own barbershop because she knew she could come up with her own ideas, and run the shop the way she wanted, including prices, layout, colors, and most importantly her own schedule.
In five years Emily sees herself expanding her client and working towards getting a manager's license to teach new barbers.
