In August of 2016, The Mankave Barbershop was established but was in the making for quite some time before the doors were officially opened.
Terrance was born in Rockledge, Fl and raised in St. George, SC. He is the youngest of his siblings, three brothers, and one sister. His oldest brother was a huge influence on him becoming a barber. Terrance's brother was the household's barber, hooking everyone up with the coolest haircuts trending at that time.
In 2007, after years of working in corporate America, Terrance decided to make a move back to Jacksonville, Fl (Duuuuuuuuuvall!) He grew tired of working for Corporate America, where he held positions as a Brick Mason, a Warehouse Lead, a New Hire Trainer, and a Grocery Manager. He decided it was time to follow his dreams and enroll in Barber College. Terrance obtained his barber license in early 2012 and hasn't looked back since.
In 2014, Terrance met a client named Atiba, which changed everything. The both of them immediately hit it off and talks about owning their own barbershop began instantly! Two years later, they found a location that was perfect, 6209 Merrill Rd, where now stands THE MANKAVE BARBERSHOP, the people's barbershop!!
