Meet Tia Clark, a talented master barber instructor who has come full circle in her career. Tia was the very first student to enroll at Faded & Co. Barber Academy, and now she is back as a teacher, sharing her knowledge and skills with the current class.


Tia discovered her passion for barbering after facing a traumatic experience which left her fighting for her life. With limited mobility in her dominant hand yet able to hold a steady grip.

She became fascinated by the art of hair cutting and knew that she wanted to pursue a career in the field. After graduation, she enrolled in Faded & Co. Barber Academy, where she quickly excelled.


Tia’s dedication and hard work paid off, and she graduated at the top of her class. She then went and passed both parts of her state board examinations, followed by the completion of a class to obtain her Master Barber Instructors license.


Now, as a master barber instructor, Tia is committed to helping her students achieve their goals. She is passionate about teaching and takes a hands-on approach, working closely with each student to ensure they master the techniques and skills they need to succeed in the industry. While also encouraging them to give back to their community. 

Tia is proud to be a female master barber instructor, breaking down gender barriers and inspiring other women to pursue careers in barbering. She is excited to be back at Faded & Co. Barber Academy, where her journey began, and is dedicated to helping her students reach their full potential.
