Zac Mayberry spent his formative years in kitchens from Kenne Bunk Port to San Diego learning all aspects of American restaurant culture.
Then, in a freak accident involving foie gras, saffron, gold leaf, sea urchin and most of the McDollar menu, he lost all ability to cook. Now, ten years later, armed with a new career in the tonsorial (that means Barber) arts, he has opened a barbershop with his good friend and business associate (not wife) Shannon 'Smalls' Smallwood.
Zac's specialty ranges from the classic precision haircuts to the modern texturized looks. His time in Barber school was spent perfecting the luxury custom shave and prides himself in an especially high quality service.
Zac thanks the city of Missoula and the state of Montana for being such welcome hosts to Compass Barbershop.
Shannon "Smalls" Smallwood has spent the last twenty years as a pro bear fighter in Alaska. After losing a rigged fight, she has fled the Eskimo mafia to the lower forty eight in an attempt to warm up and enjoy her fighting retirement.
Her time in the frozen north was well spent, gaining a degree in wild fishery procurement, cosmetology, preparatory sustenance engineering, ceramic transportation science and taxidermy.
Shannon is now the proud co-parent of Compass Barbershop, and specializes in both women and men's services including hair cutting and color, as well as facial waxing.
Although Shannon has retired from the pro circuit, she is still available to fight less dangerous animals, such as lions and tigers.
Originally from Portland, OR, Anna started cutting hair in 1999. Moved to Atlanta where she was temporarily an "ATLien" and cut hair off and on there for 15 years. The mountains were calling so she made her way back to Missoula. And here she is!
Kitty Deyo is a long time Missoula mover and shaker since moving from Helena in 1999 and has been involved in the local music festival and entertainment industry for nearly 20 years.
Kitty received her education in cosmetology in 2004 but she’s dedicated the last four and a half years exclusively to the art of Manscaping. Clipper cuts are her jam! From military fades and flat tops to etched out mohawks and majestic mullets, Kitty does it all.
Happy to be back in Missoula, Jason Duff recently changed careers from a restaurant worker to full time barber. Jason is a licensed Chemical Barber and is most happy working with people. He is excited to join the Compass team and soak up all they have to give. Jason spent his early career slingin' drinks and food around Missoula until he decided to stop cutting people's hair in his mom's basement.
Jason loves haircuts, wiener dogs, and long walks through Kiwanis Park."
