In its 4th episode, Levels Barbershop, located at 124 Lexington Avenue, introduced Ishmael, aka Ish, to give viewers an insight into its upcoming reality show.
Ish’s passion for barbering began when he was 14. He received his first big break after Kevin, the owner of Levels, saw a design that he cut into his brother’s hair. He has been working at Levels ever since.
Ish learned from Rico (the movie), J-Out (the trendsetter), and Troy (the community). He believes that the only setback would be those who are afraid to bring their own individuality.
