If you read the topic of this article and you are shocked that a barber makes up to $500k yearly, you are not alone. Everyone definitely wants to know the secret to a barber making such an amount as yearly income. Without further ado meet Wade Menendez, popularly referred to as “Wade the Barber.”
Wade is an African-American in his mid-thirties who is reputed for developing “man weaves.” The process also known as cranial prosthesis is one which helps to restore hair to balding scalps. He runs a barbershop in Maryland known as the “W hair loft” which attracts balding men from all over. The solution created by Wade in conjunction with another stylist involves filling up a balding scalp with hair without the individual having to undergo a surgical procedure.
His method is quite easy when described in a few words but you obviously know it is far beyond a simple explanation, it was birthed from lots of research and hours upon hours of practice. This is what Wade does, he gets pieces of both natural and synthetic hair then glues them on the scalp to ensure a perfect blend with the remaining hair.
Though Wade has been in the barbing business for over 13 years he developed the cranial prosthesis method just four years ago and it has made him and the “W hair loft” extremely popular. Asides being a barber, Wade conducts classes periodically for other barbers and hair stylists with the aim of imparting them with techniques he had developed as well as other aspects of the business.
Last year alone, Wade made close to half a million dollars from his business alone. Speaking about this, Wade said he had a few celebrity clients and though people see money as a major criteria to measure success, that is not the only way to show how successful he has been at running a barbershop.
