The concept is to provide Hair Cuts and Shaves at the comfort of your home, or place of business. We started with a Pop Up location in Scarborough.
The Traveling Barber was developed in 1991 by Founder, Cameron D.Fray. 3 years before that in
1988, Cameron was cutting his own and his brothers hair. By 1990 he bought a full set of tools and
started an apprenticeship at Castries Barbers in Toronto. In early 1991, he got a job at Cut Creator
in Scarborough and developed his craft there. It wasn't long before Cameron realized that it wasn't
just about cutting hair but also catering to people's needs and respecting their valuable time.
Cameron discovered a void that needed to be addressed by a company that was willing to travel
to a variety of private and public facilities to provide on site hair service.
The Traveling Barber started out as a part time venture that he pursued in addition to working
for Nappy's Hair and further his singing career with his Juno nominated group Selections. The
demand for the services of Traveling Barber grew so rapidly that it necessitated Cameron to go to
school in 1992 for cosmetology and get his barber license. After a couple of successful years, in
1994 Cameron was forced to end the business due to unfortunate circumstances with his family.
In 1996, Cameron was living in Atlanta and started up The Traveling Barber there and was very
successful for a couple of years.
The first Brick & Mortar location in Scarborough Opened for
business October 2019.
