Shafic Tayara's journey started with a pencil and paper,
Drawing up imaginations as a kid led to creating his ‘own’ destiny. In high school, friends asked if he could shape their hairline because of his steady hand from drawing and started cutting in his garage. As he grew older, he developed a passion for cutting hair because he saw the positivity in turning nothing into something and the happiness and confidence it brought people. In 2009 he attended Aveda Institute, a cosmetology school in Los Angeles and created the concept ‘Get Faded Blown and Nailed (Get FBN) a perspective brand that actually means get your hair faded, hair blown and nails done (look good) to help break stereotypes and inspire others to keep going no matter what the circumstance appears to be. GetFBN has a purpose deeper than just cutting hair and is a true lifestyle. Fast forward to today in 2020 FBN the brand is celebrating our 10 year anniversary.
