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.
SPLACC THE ARTIST
Kevin Goicochea hails from Torrance, CA. After graduating high school he decided to pursue an education in Criminal Justice and began attending El Camino College. After taking a few courses his first semester he realized that he didn’t have that passion he thought he had in becoming a police officer. He didn’t have a back-up at the time and no work. After being gifted a pair of legit clippers by his cousin Josh he picked up the clippers and never put them down. What was once a hobby turned into a passion since 2013. From practicing giving free haircuts in his bedroom to family and friends to having his own chairs at the shop and creating a name for himself in the South Bay area, it's really changed his life. "Let’s keep it pushing & building up the barber culture."
Born and raised in South Bay Cali, Kris “Chino” Romero’s first love was playing ball. It came as no surprise when he found his true passion in the dugout too...cutting up his fellow teammates. With some pointers from his pops, Chino began cutting and playing ball through high school. After graduation and a quick semester of college, realizing the sentimental value he shared with cutting hair, Kris decided to put all his game into his passion of barbering, making sure his clients stay fresh.

Being introduced into the industry at only 17 Chino, who’s now 21, plans to continue to grow with the FBN team and leave an imprint on young entrepreneurs.
