Howard L. Smith Jr. brings 28 years of barber knowledge and experience to your visit at Mr.Smith's Barber Studio in Laurel, MD. His faith in God and family are the staples of this vision. He is a graduate of Bladensburg Barber School in Bladensburg, MD. After a brief enrollment at Montgomery College in Takoma Park, Maryland he decided to go another route and pursue his journey of business ownership. He cut his teeth as a rookie barber in a Beauty Salon in Silver Spring, MD in 1989 where the presssure was on to develope quickly and produce as the only onsite barber. He then arrived in Laurel, MD in 1990 and began his barber career at Don's Barbershop which was at that time the only african-american barbershop in Laurel. After a five year formative stint he moved onto Headquarters Barbershop in Laurel, MD where he trained and honed his managerial skills for another five years. With 10 solid years behind him he partnered with the late Mr. Charles Wison to launch Mr. Smith's Barber Studio on February 1, 2000. His vision was to create an atmosphere where barbers could hone and develope their own skills and one day become shop owners themselves. Some barbers realize that shop ownership is not for them but they are still able to earn a decent living while giving themselves an opportunity to pursue their true passion. Mr. Smith has also helped and encouraged many barbers who were not officially licensed before they arrived to persue and get their credentials. We are proud to say that this vision has produced several licensed barbers as well as (6) six Barbershop Owners, (5) five in Maryland and one in Atlanta, GA. As the industry has continued to evolve, Mr. Smith's Barber Studio's vision has evolved as well to include a brouder approach to it's marketing efforts. Realizing that the barber game is no longer just a local community venture but a globel endevor, the MSBS Apparel Line was launched in 2016 to spotlite the great barbers that represent the DMV area! This vison has and always will continue to evolve in order to reflect an ever changing industry.
