What's happening in Florida that some of our favorite barbers are from the sunshine state? Frank Anthony Soto's work is next level. We especially love some of his littlest customers, who leave with a lollipop and a cut that will make them the coolest kid on campus.
Frank Anthony Soto
Mr. Man Barbershop, Orlando, Florida
Specialty: Men’s grooming and education
Most viral post: It’s when I decided to start incorporating waxing into my services. I made a video waxing clients’ ears, noses, and beards. I think it went viral because I am a barber that offers multiple services.
Favorite apps: PicsArt because I use it for transferring my logo to my pictures. iMovie, this is where I make all of my videos. It makes it simple and convenient; cameraconnect I used to transfer my photos from my Cannon camera to my iPhone.
Favorite hastags: #orlandobarber #modernsalon #frankdabarber

Pro tips: I suggest investing in a ring light, only because lighting is very important when taking a picture of a hair cut. A fade is the contrast between light and dark so if the lighting is off, it’s not going to look good in the picture.
Hidden talent: As a kid, I grew up in church and always had an interest in playing drums. I picked it up by watching and I actually play drums really well.
How social media changed my life: Social media has opened doors to many opportunities. It has given me the ability to travel and educate and meet and network with other individuals who have the same passion for what I do. Most importantly, it has helped me fill up my book and establish new relationships.
