My name is Habib Noor Habib and I am a professional barber. When I’m not cutting hair I’m honestly home with the family. I'm very family oriented. I love playing and watching sports. I grew up in Des Moines Iowa and I couldn’t have asked for a better city to grow up in.
2.) Tell us about a challenging time in your life and what lessons you learned from it?
The most challenging time for me was when I was in barber college. It wasn’t easy balancing college life and personal life.
3.) How or what started your passion?
I used to be in the barbershop ever week getting a haircut. I seen how much fun they were having. It was nothing like a job. I loved that atmosphere and the vibe. So because of that I started loving the whole concept of being a barber and as every week passed I was more passionate bout it.
4.) What motivates you to follow and pursue your passion?
What motivates me are my clients. The more happier they are about their haircut, the more it motivates me to do even better the next time.
5.) What advice would you give to the new up and coming artist?
"Grind your a** off!"

Look ahead. We all make mistakes. We learn and grow from the mistakes we do.
7.) Have you or how do you do you contribute to the community?
The barbers and I at Platinum Kutz Barbershop are all about the community. Every year we do free back to school cuts and also around holiday times we try to contribute as much as we can to the community.
8.) Who do you look up to besides your parents?
My brothers. They all have their own businesses. They were and will always be great role models to me.
9.) What are your goals for the next 5 years?
My goals are hopefully to grow my clientele base and to open my own barbershop.
10.) What is your motto in life?
My motto in life is to keep grinding it out and hopefully one day i will open my own barbershop.
11.) How did you find out about Made4Mankind Clothing?
I honestly didn’t know much about Made4Mankind until I started cutting my guys Awon and Andre. Came to find out that I owned a Made4Mankind T-Shirt before I met them. Always had people commenting on at the T-Shirt.
12.) What do you know about Made4Mankind Clothing?
At first I thought they were just a clothing line. But when I sat down with Awon and he explained to me with their motive was and right there and then I said I'm all in. Loved the message they were spreading and I’m just glad I could be apart of it.
