How top barber Philly Garcia fought to stay a cut above
When Philly Garcia set out to become a top barber, he had nothing but a car, some clippers, and a dream.
"When I hit rock bottom, I was homeless ... sleeping in my car," he says. "But I looked in the mirror and said, 'Let's get out of this.' That was the fighting spirit that changed my life."
Now, Garcia is known as the "Barberking" and is the go-to coiffeur for Southern California's top pro athletes. He continues his can-do attitude for his family, especially his daughter.
"When I look in the mirror, I am my biggest competitor," he says. "I don't compete with no one but myself."
