This month, Rashid Omar, 21, is set to achieve his dreams of working as a professional barber and completing a Certificate III in Barbering at TAFESA.
Rashid was introduced to barbering at a young age, in his uncle’s barber shop in Lebanon. He has continued working to expand his repertoire by learning from a barber friend after class and providing haircuts to his friends. He has become known as a barber with flair.
Having fled the war in Syria, Rashid was resettled in South Australia with his parents and siblings in 2016. He attended Adelaide Secondary School of English before pursuing a career in barbering at TAFESA.
The AMRC is assisting Rashid with his exciting plans to open his own barber shop.
