Meet Christopher and Melissa Cage of Originality BarberSalon in North Park

Today we’d like to introduce you to Christopher and Melissa Cage.

Christopher and Melissa, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
About two and a half years ago, my wife and I relocated from Los Angeles here to San Diego with our 4 children with just a leap of faith, determination and a sense of hard work. When we first moved out here we didn’t even have a plan we just knew we were gonna come out here and just hustle hard for our kids to give them the life that we did not have as kids. So me as a barber worked in a couple shops getting better at my craft while my wife was working at the shop she was since we got here in San Diego. I felt like I got good at my craft and my wife got even better at what she does so I came with the idea “Let’s open up our own shop” And it was history from there. This is where we are at now.

Has it been a smooth road?
It was a struggle a very hard struggle. Having 4 kids sleeping on my auntie living room floor trying to find child care and schools fir the kids that was very tough moment. It was times I got discouraged times where I was like I am way over my head out here with our 4 kids and wife. But we stuck through the struggle together. Things start to fall into place. I had got into a shop Downtown which had me get money for our first apartment. Things start falling into place. Yes there is struggles also in this business. Trying to figure out how things work out being our first business. How to get more clientele to walk in against the shops that have been around here for years. But I have faith in our Originality, that’s what will push us to the top in this area. Just being original.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Originality BarberSalon – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
