Welcome to Behind the Chair, where our incredible team members are nominated by a Tommy Gun’s Original Barbershop co-worker and each month a specific Gunner is chosen to be featured.
Brooke, from our Grande Prairie, Alberta location, started her Tommy Gun’s journey almost seven years ago. She has been nominated for her efficiency at managing the front end and over the years has become well rounded in all aspects of the business.
When Brooke joined the team in 2014, she was still in high school and completing her hair styling program. Upon graduation, she started apprenticing and eventually became a full-time Barber. In 2016 the shop had a fire and was closed for six months, which at that time, Brooke decided to move away for three years. During that time, sadly, Brooke was in a car accident that ended her barbering career.
In the summer of 2019, Brooke returned home and came back on board with Tommy Gun’s, working in Guest Services. As a result of her dedication and leadership, she moved into managing during the COVID re-opening and she is one of Grande Prairie’s most cherished team members.
