How a Pair of Clippers Led to a Calling
For Josué (“Sway”) Navarro Barraza, it was never just about hair, that’s been clear from the start. In the beginning, it was a means to an end.
Little did he know it would open the door to possibilities he could have never imagined.
Born in Durango, Mexico, Sway moved to the humble town of Amarillo, Texas when he was 5. Unable to apply for a job without social security, he stumbled upon a pair of clippers (don’t worry - not literally!) and started cutting hair when he was in high school to help his single mother, charging five to ten dollars per haircut in his 200-square-foot bedroom.
He soon developed a love for the craft, approaching each client like a canvas on which to create artwork. Every snip was like a stroke of a paintbrush, every cut like another work of art.
Continuing to pursue his passion, Sway enrolled in the Lubbock Hair Academy in 2012, where he connected with other barbers worldwide.
Just like his clients who felt most fulfilled on the court, Sway found his confidence holding a pair of clippers. He felt an indescribable, swelling sensation, his body’s way of communicating that he was fulfilling his purpose.
Now, Sway wants to help others do the same. He aims to support aspiring barbers and hairstylists on their journeys, imparting his knowledge and techniques. In the same way, Renovated Esthetics achieves its mission by encouraging everyone to be the best version of themselves.
