Today we’d like to introduce you to Terrill Binion.
Terrill, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
It all started for me back in 2005, shortly after I was recovering from an ACL knee injury from playing basketball abroad and my father was just recently diagnosed with cancer. During recovery I was contemplating on my next move, my father gave me the idea to pursue cutting hair. I started cutting my own hair when I was high school at the age of 14. This later turned into friends and classmates asking me for a haircut. I can remember my first pair of clippers like it was yesterday. I had a pair of black and white Wahl clippers with a number 1 plastic guard. Those clippers were my all-purpose tools, they cut the fade and did the lining. I have worked in many barber shops in Chicago before landing here in Texas. Along my journey I have met some great barbers who were willing to pour into me secrets of the craft to make more efficient as a barber and businessman. I relocated to Texas 2 years ago from Chicago, I originally started my career in Texas as an In Home Investigator for the state of Texas. After working on the job for 9 months I found myself still searching for my happy place. I resigned from my job and decided to return back to being a barber. Being a barber gives me the ability to raise a clients’ self-esteem through a precise, well blended haircut service. I am able to bring my style and flare from Chicago to provide services to some of the best clients in the metroplex. They keep me engaged with different conversations from all perspectives of life and I keep them feeling like a true celebrity once they leave my chair.
Now, I am a licensed Class A Barber in the state of Texas who has acquired more knowledge about hair other than just cutting. Along my journey I have met some great barbers who was willing to pour into me some secrets of the craft to make more efficient as barber and businessman.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
This road traveled has not been easy. My biggest challenge is staying focused and not doubt my skill and ability. My biggest fear was starting over in a new place without knowing anyone. Through hard work, dedication, and marketing I’m able to say business is steady. I encourage anyone to follow their passion, if you do what you’re passionate about it’s’ never considered to be work.
We’d love to hear more about your business.

I specialize in precise, well blended haircuts that can included mini facial services in addition to hot towel shaves. My goal is not to sell haircuts but provide a total client experience.
What were you like growing up?
Growing up I was considered to be very outgoing and not afraid to speak my mind. Over the years I have applied many teachings from my parents that gave me wisdom that is applied to my everyday life. Also through playing basketball that taught me to be disciplined and consistent in all aspects.
