The Barbers of Cliff Barber Shop


Caleb West was drawn to a career in barbering by the time he was just 15 years old. As a youth, he and his fellow classmates at Rockwood Middle School would hang out at the local barber shop after school  most days. He liked the atmosphere at the shop and that helped develop an interest in the business. After spending a semester at Roane State Community College he decided to pursue hair styling full time and enrolled in the Paul Mitchell School in Knoxville. He graduated Paul Mitchell in December of 2015, began working for Cliff Barber Shop shortly after and today manages the second location of Cliff Barber Shop in Harriman.


Ivan Betancourt is the newest member of the Cliff Barber Shop team. Ivan is a recent graduate of the Paul Mitchell School in Knoxville and will work at our Rockwood location near Roane State Community College. Even as a young boy in elementary school in his home town of Wauchula, Florida Ivan enjoyed getting his hair cut at the local barber shop. When career day came around Ivan decided to dress as a barber. He was just 7 years old at the time. He eventually moved to Tennessee and decided to pursue a career as a barber. Ivan met Cliff Barber Shop Harriman manager Caleb West at Paul Mitchell and stayed in touch with him through the year and eventually was offered a position with the company. Ivan brings the same high quality of talent and expertise we've always provided our customers and we look forward to working with him in the new year.
