Owner, Purple Label Luxury Barbershop
DeJuan graduated from Ea La Mars Cosmetology and Barber College in 1995 and opened the doors to his first shop in 1997, Napps Barbershop. In 2010, DeJuan opened Purple Label. He specifically decided to change the name in an effort to broaden the demographic and diversity of his customers. Purple, to signify royalty and the Paleolithic tradition that cutting hair was a duty of the wisest priests, and Label, as a reference to his first storefront, Napps. In 1998, DeJuan became the Official Barber of the Kansas City Chiefs and in 2004, he became Barber to the Royals.
