Liliputian. Hard rocker. Dual-Wield. Bubbles over.
ABOUT: Deena grew up in these here parts, but got a healthy dose of Texas all over here when she settled down there for a couple of years, and now back to flail dance all over the region of greater Chicagoland. She has been cutting for her whole adult life (not including all the awful haircuts she gave to dolls as a kid), but, in classic overachiever style, went back to get her barber’s license too after over a decade in the industry. In the meantime she had enough time to take on extra work in another arm of the edibles/libations section of the service industry. Wonder if she still owns that kilt.
FAVORITE THINGS: Music of so many sorts, primarily hard rock and country, but if it’s live even more so, making things super tidy, checking things off to do lists, animals of all sorts, sometimes more fervently than said animal is comfortable with. Except Nuala the shop dog, she’ll take those belly rubs all day.
FANDOMS: It’s Always Sunny, Supernatural, Stranger Things, Vikings, Disney!!!, American Dad, Bob’s Burgers, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Black Sails, Friends, Seinfeld, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Super Bad, Guardians of the Galaxy, Deadpool, the Ted franchise, and all that aforementioned music.

SPECIALTIES: Like Amanda, Deena is one of the select few barbers around here for knows what to do with longer, less barberly hairstyles, but she also has the barber realm down pat. She’s a solid all-around cutter, beard maker and razor wielder, but if you want to partake in a secret specialty of hers, what she does at a shampoo bowl is soooo satisfying. And if you want to see more of what she’s up to/know when she has chair spots to fill, follow her on Instagram.
