Randolph Allen began his career in the hair industry at the age of 16. As a young man facing the challenge of working with barbers with much more experience, he made the decision to get ahead through education. He attended as many schools and training seminars as he could. In just a few short years, he finally gained recognition as a leader in the industry.
Randolph worked as a barber for many years, and in the late 1970's he opened several unisex salons. During that time, he competed in many hair shows and competitions, and won numerous awards throughout that time.
His true passion was the barber industry and in 1988 he opened his first location of The Barber Shop & Co. The shop was a huge success and was soon followed by many more locations. Randolph now has locations and franchises across the U.S.
Randolph decided to share his knowledge and developed the Randolph Allen hair cutting system and training program. He then started passing along his knowledge to the next generation of barbers.
Randolph Allen continues to offer training and education programs. So when you see "By Randolph Allen" or the "RA" logo you know you are getting the best.
