Raul grew up in historic Barelas.

In his teenage years, he found his calling cutting hair while working at a local barbershop owned by a well-known and highly respected member of the community. The training and mentoring he received stuck with him. Raul dreamed of one day owning his own barbershop in Barelas where he could welcome people of the community, and carry on the traditions of his predecessor. But just like for most of us, the demands of adult life soon took over and his dream moved to the back burner. UNTIL NOW! Raul is the proud owner of Barelas Rose Barber Shop, and as the proud father of athletic kids, he’s also got a space for them to work out behind his shop. His wife, Shamrah, teaches yoga on Sundays! It’s a family affair at Barelas Rose!
