JC Tha Barber

An insider's look into the world of celebrities from the perspective of the person they confide in most: their barber.

JC Tha Barber follows celebrity barber JC Hammons into the homes and dressing rooms of today's hottest stars from the world of film, hip-hop and professional sports.

As their friend, their confidante and their barber, JC gets the inside scoop on the latest celebrity happenings and hottest stories before they break.

JC is also a "hype man" and performer who has been on stage with French Montana, Sean Kingston and Chris Brown.

JC's journey to the top has been far from smooth. In his early 20's he was hanging out with the wrong people and ended up in jail.

The impact of this experience would change the direction of his life forever.

While incarcerated he found that he had a talent for the barbering arts and decided to follow this career upon his release from prison.

The only Filipino in barber school, his hustle and drive set him apart from others and caught the attention of his instructors.

JC used his unique ability to market himself to build his clientele and win over those that doubted his talent.

Today he finds himself as one of the most sought after celebrity barbers in the game.

Between charity events, a busy career and social life, we get to see that there is more to JC than meets the eye.

From coming up with new designs for Addidas to starting up his very own brand, JC is in hot demand but this doesn't stop his funny side.
