A well-groomed haircut is a highly noticeable aspect of a man’s appearance. Celebrities, who always strive to look their best, invest in various elements such as their wardrobe, hair and skin products, shoes, and accessories like watches. To achieve this desired look, they rely on the expertise of a skilled team of professionals who can meet and surpass their expectations, helping them maintain their appearance and leave a lasting impression on their followers and audience.
In Kenya, there is a highly sought-after professional celebrity barber named Barber Roba. He is responsible for creating the looks of some of Kenya’s biggest celebrities, including Daniel ‘Churchill’ Ndambuki, Dennis Itumbi, and MC Jessy, who have been his loyal clients for over a decade. Both comedians have repeatedly praised him for his exceptional skills and expertise in his field.
Barber Roba has an impressive career spanning more than seventeen years. He was born in Nanyuki and started his haircut business in the early 2000s. However, it wasn’t until 2014 that his business gained traction and caught the attention of celebrities.
Through hard work and dedication, Roba gradually built his brand and eventually attracted high-profile clients. He has had the privilege of styling the hair of numerous celebrities and politicians, including Daniel ‘Churchill’ Ndambuki, MC Jessy, Dennis Okari, Kabi WaJesus, Nyali MP Mohammed Ali, Lawyer and Senator Cliff Ombeta, and blogger Dennis Itumbi, among others.
In 2018, Roba had the honor of giving a haircut to Tanzanian music star Diamond Platnumz when he visited Kenya.
In a previous interview, Roba clarified that although he primarily caters to celebrities, his barber shop is not as expensive as many people assume. He emphasizes that the prices are quite affordable, and anyone interested in getting a haircut can visit his shop at Avenue House, conveniently located along Kenyatta Avenue in Nairobi.
