Celebrity Groomer Adrian Fanus oozes fascination and zest when he speaks of his craft. A native of Micoud, St. Lucia Fanus notes, “By the time I was 16 or 17, I already had my own salon in St. Lucia.”
Fanus, 33, began his career in men’s grooming by working as an apprentice to Ryan Evan, a distinguished groomer in St. Lucia. Fanus relished the thought of creating a unique look specific to each individual. He analyzes each client’s facial structure and personality to create an innovative style. “I think a haircut is like a fingerprint. No two fingerprints are the same so a haircut has to be individually tailored.”
With this type of approach paired with his calm and collected disposition, it’s no wonder why many flock to sit in his chair. Adrian Fanus’s attention to detail and keen sense of style is what led him to working with clients such as NBA players Nate Robinson, Grant Hill, NFL Player Eddie George and Hollywood heavyweight Forest Whitaker (to name a few). Artistically self-taught yet professionally trained, it’s his devoted clientele and innate determination that keeps him going. Fanus, a father of two boys says he has an ability to connect with his clients, often listening to their personal concerns. It’s this type of trust factor that makes him so personable.
Fanus now successfully runs AFG in the heart of Clinton Hills Brooklyn. When he is not behind the chair, or on set doing what he does best, he can be found giving back the the community by supporting under privilege kids reach their goals, or raising money for cancer.
He takes pride in his work, family and his community while traveling the world.
