With a variety of skills and strengths, our small but powerful team packs a punch. We believe that our brand is as strong as the individuals behind it.
A travel obsessed, animal-loving (in particular, a black pug named Olive!) foodie who is gifted with the talent and flair of a true artist (his painting skills are not to be overlooked). Lance is not someone who is afraid of hard work; he is determined, passionate, and believes in the continuous strive for perfection. Coffee. Food. Theatre. Art. Travel. He is very much the guy who enjoys and appreciates good culture – add some tequila and gin into the mix and you have a winning combination! 4 years in the barbering industry has given him the perfect platform to showcase his creativity. Meticulous and clean (you will rarely find a loose hair at his station), Lance gives the best of himself when you are in his char and thrives on the transformation aspect of barbering. We are so excited that he is part of our Hermanos family.
Striking blue eyes, blonde locks, and a mischievously fun sense of humour! Meet Angela – a bubbly, caring, determined, and passionate barber(ess) who began her career in the hair industry over 10 years ago. Angela loves being outdoors; camping, gardening, and spending quality time with her family. She is known to whip some magic up in the kitchen, and give her a good whiskey (or two) and she might show you her hidden piano playing talents! She appreciates the finer details in life – especially when it comes to her work – and she thrives on making people feel better about themselves. We are so delighted to have her a part of our gang!
A big dreamer, with a calming energy and a thirst for knowledge that transcends the realms of everyday life. Meet Vern – our kind-hearted, caring, nature-loving artist with a talent for structure and design. Vern has been making people look and feel their best for well over 8 years and continues to perfect his craft daily. Quiet yet witty, with a sharp sense of humour. Chat to him about all things science, philosophical and conspiracy theories and his greatest love, Eli (a Vern ‘mini-me’). We are so happy to have his great energy and talent a part of our team.
If you haven’t heard this girl sing, do yourself a favour! Meet Keren – a hugely talented Capetonian with the voice of an angel and the newest member to join our team. An artist at her core, Keren began her barbering journey with us early 2020; her dedication, commitment, and passion to the trade are going to make some serious waves. People, their stories and the ability to make them feel like the best version of themselves make her happiest. Give her a GnT, put some (many!) dogs in the mix and surround her with friends and family and you have a winning formula. Witty. Competitive. Smart. A boundary pusher. We are so happy to have this power-house on board!
Our own Foxxy Cleopatra; this effortlessly cool, uber-stylish, strong-willed and immensely talented lady is our newest addition to the brotherhood. With a lengthy background in the grooming industry, Natacha comes with a wealth of experience and talent. Yoga, the outdoors and her family (pugs included) are some of her greatest loves. She brings a fantastic energy to our team, with a calming glow to her at all times. Don’t be fooled by her quiet nature; growing up with 5 brothers, Natacha knows how to handle her own. She is a master with the scissors and will make you feel like she has given you every ounce of her talent. We could not be happier to have her part of our team!
Jared – the barber/singer/songwriter/sock king – grew up in Kimberley, schooled in Grahamstown, and has been living in Cape Town for close to five years. With a natural aptitude for style and hair, he began his career at an early age and has become a force to be reckoned with. Alternate rock, a kick-ass motorbike, his girlfriend, and his two cats are on top of this party rocker’s list of favourites. Jared is one of our founding team members; with masterful fade-work and superb styling skills, we couldn’t be happier to have him part of our crew.
Danilo is a master engineer turned world traveler turned barber, and one of the founding members of Hermanos. His attention to detail is unrivaled (some refer to him as the surgeon), and his commitment to excellence is clear with every service. Apart from his witty sense of humour and his obsession with great sound and music (his carefully curated selections can be enjoyed in-store), he has a passion for learning, science, and insightful conversation. Add some whiskey, nature, and Spanish to the mix and you’ve got the man’s bases covered. An integral part of our team and the development of our newer barbers, we are thrilled to have him in the brotherhood.
This blue, and very bright-eyed, Japanese obsessed, chess playing party animal goes by the name Charlie! Charlie joined the brotherhood with a zest for life and an innate ability to keep smiling no matter the circumstances. She loves a good whiskey, looks forward to beach days and knows how to play the piano. She manages non-barbering activities in the shop and is a master at lash and brow tinting. Charlie is a core member of our crew and we couldn’t be happier to have her on the journey with us.
Stephan joins our brotherhood with a vision for the future. As the founder of Hermanos, Stephan saw an opportunity to bring the male grooming experience to new grounds, while creating an inclusive and purposeful brand. His diverse career, entrepreneurial flair, and a knack for numbers have brought a refreshing outlook to an old-world industry. Speak to this under-cover geek about Tesla, Space X and all things science and you will win his heart. Offer him a koeksister and you will have it forever.
Ilaria – the glue that binds it all together – may be the shortest of the bunch but is by no means the quietest; she has a major presence and an even bigger voice. Owner and founder of Flat White Designs, she is responsible for Hermanos looking good on all social media fronts, digital platforms and maintaining the overall brand. This Business Science, Property Finance and Interior Design graduate likes to keep things classy and on-trend. Make her laugh, and you’ll win her over. When you find her in the shop, ask how good her coffee-making skills are…
Social butterfly. Petrol head. Master in the kitchen AND amazing barber. Meet Casper; originally a farm boy from Buffeljagsrivier (say that a few times over!) who is versed in IT studies, property and more recently, a barbering course in London, is not afraid of hard work. Great tunes, a camera, some good whiskey and a weekend on the farm are up there on his list of favourites. His creative flair and passion to work with his hands has brought him into the barbering world and we are so happy to have him on board!
