By Lue Dowdy, CA– I’m happy to announce this week’s selected artist, Michael Echols, Barber/Promoter/Entrepreneur. Hair is an art! It takes a special set of skills to keep folks looking good. Having a good haircut can make a world of difference in a person’s self-esteem.
Michael Echols has been a professional barber for 5yrs. He’s currently working out of Cold Cutz Barbershop in downtown Riverside located at, 4029 Market Street Riverside CA, 92501. Receiving his license from Rosston’s Barber College, Michael specializes in all textures of hair. If you need a bald fade, shadow fade, taper, flat top, mo-hawk, fro-hawk, he’s your guy. No time to go to the shop, ask about his mobile service. Micheal will bring the shop to you. You can find this talented Barber at the shop, Sunday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturdays by appointment only. Check out his work at facebook.com/tipyourbarber and on I.G @ Riverside_Raised.
Michael Echols, also is one of the producers for “The Underground Poetry & Lyricist Lounge.” This is an event put on once a month on the 2nd Sunday night of every month in the city of Riverside. It’s been in existence for almost a year and is growing fast. Their objective is to create an atmosphere that welcomes and brings together art, poetry, culture, creativity and unity. Michael feels by doing this, it will create a hub that allows individuals to network amongst one another.
