Prayer changes things! Mac believes that the power of prayer can
change and rearrange a person's life. Mac is from a large family,
his parents moved to the Hampton Roads area in 1962 looking for a
better life for their children. Upon moving to the area, Mac's father
found work in a community barbershop. Here is where Mac worked at a
young age as a shoe shine boy. He was intrigued by life in the
barbershop and developed a love for the barbering experience. Mac
grew and sharpened his skills as a barber and when he graduated
high school he also acquired his master barber certification. He worked at
Essence Barbershop for some years before he stepped out on faith and
opened his own barbershop in Denbigh. With his now deceased wife, he
opened Mac's Barbershop in 1994. Mac and his wife equipped his shop
with capable barbers that could meet the needs of a diverse population.
His wife was his anchor and they grew Mac's firtst barbershop into a
thriving community business. In 2000 Mac's prayers were answered and
he opened Mac's Barbershop Two in downtown Newport News. Five years
later he opened Mac's Three in Williamsburg. Through prayer Mac has been
able to open several locations to meet the needs of his customers. He
provides a safe wholesome environment that welcomes ALL people. He
truly believes that prayer changes things and through his and
Carol's (his loving wife) prayers they are serving the Hampton Roads
community with a barbershop environment that caters to its families.
