Meet our Crew!
Whitney has been part of Clippers Barbershop for over eleven years. Initially hired on as a receptionist and hairstylist, it didn't take long for her to realize that cutting and styling men's hair was the side of the beauty industry she was the most passionate about. After returning to school in 2014 she obtained a barber license and has held both a barber and cosmetology license ever since.
Whitney has been fortunate enough to grow with the business over the years and quickly landed herself the full time manager position. It was then that another passion came to light, that of managing and running a business. After many years of hard work and dedication, Whitney was offered the opportunity to put her knowledge of the business and barbering industry to the test and became the sole owner of Clippers Barbershop in 2019.
She looks forward to continuing to grow as a barber, employer and small business owner in SLO for many years to come!

She is originally from Savannah Georgia, moved around and eventually ended up in the Central Coast, where she has been the last 5 years.
"Born and raised on the Central Coast! After high school I moved south to Santa Barbara for Beauty School. I knew I wanted to do something creative for a living and decided hair cutting and styling was the best fit for me. I’ve been part of the barbering community for a few years now but am well educated in both men’s and women’s haircuts, styles and color. When I’m not in the shop I’m out boating on Nacimento, or enjoying the local beaches with friends."
"I have a passion for hair and making people feel confident and amazing in how they look! I started my career working in a salon and specialized in kids cuts. It wasn’t until I came to work at Clippers Barbershop that I found my passion for men’s cuts and styles, I enjoy what I do ever day! I have five years of experience in the beauty industry and love learning about different trends and product lines. Suavecito and Redken are among some of my favorite products and I’m always open to try new ones. I was born in Orange County but raised on the Central Coast, I love outdoor activities, hiking, and being as creative as possible."
