Hello there, and thank you for checking out my barbershop!
I grew up in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties. I have spent time living in the Mountains in Lake Arrowhead. I have always been drawn to a small town vibe, the outdoors and being surrounded by nature! I have traveled to the Pacific Northwest many times and fell in love with the Columbia River Gorge. Most recently working in Hood River, I found myself setting up permanent roots here in The Dalles!
Throughout my life, I have always been interested in the creative arts. In high school, you could find me in the Art Department screen printing band t-shirts, painting and drawing. In college, I received a Studio Arts Degree and completed my Cosmetology license and certification in Makeup Artistry. I started working Freelance Artistry in 2008, on location hair and makeup for personal clients, vendors, events and editorial photography.
I maintained a passion for short haircutting and finished the crossover program into Barbering. I have since, worked at some very special barbershops! I’ve gained the most valuable knowledge learning directly behind the chair and from my talented peers! I work well with diverse, unique styles and specialize in clean and classic cuts, tapers, razor fades.
My goals are to reinvent the tradition of going to the barbershop! Friends and neighbors, fathers and sons can relax and receive a genuine and honest service! A positive space for those in the community feel comfortable and supported.
My inspiration for this barbershop comes from memories of living in Redondo Beach, growing up in tattoo shops and finding out about really good music! Also reminiscent of the good ole’ days! Sailor Tattoos and American Vintage, old time decor. This shop is a miniature version of myself!
My hobbies outside of Barbering are: my puppies, hiking, punk rock, live music, cooking and hanging down by the river! Thank you for supporting my vision and hope to see you in the shop soon!
Karyn Bustos left the corporate world of human resources to attend cosmetology school in 2006. She first focused on esthetics, but found herself drawn to the precision and detail involved in short style haircuts. Barbering became her main focus & passion, owning her own barbershop in Pendleton, Oregon & working in barber shops in Gig-Harbor, Hood River & The Dalles. Experiences and details are what Karyn deems important. “Daily life is not easy. It’s important for everyone to take some time￼ for themselves. Many men feel getting a haircut is a chore to check off the list. Why not make that ‘chore’ a pleasant experience, something you look forward to?” Karyn specializes in gentlemen's cuts and shear work! She is amazing and patient and with child haircuts! Her and her partner, Colin have 5 kids between them, ages 24-6, and she enjoys True Crime, gardening, painting & exploring everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
Karyn is licensed in Hair Design, Barbering and Esthetics! Thank you so very much for being apart of our journey Karyn!
