Mohammad Reda began cutting hair at his late grandfather, Mohammad’s barbershop in the mountain village of Machghara, in Lebanon. His grandfather, who was also a farmer, taught him the craft, and began by instructing him on the art of the straight-razor shave. Mohammad, who also goes by Pro Moe, now runs Lá Moda, a barbershop of his own in West Toledo, nearby the University of Toledo’s Main Campus. He shipped over his grandfather’s barber chair from Lebanon for $1,000, and hopes to refurbish it and use it as his barber chair at Lá Moda.
