The Founders

Meet The Founders

Mike and Chaunté Andrews are a dynamic husband and wife team and parents to three amazing children.

Mike is a licensed Master Barber and has worked at perfecting his craft for over 10 years.

Mike was able to quickly build his clientele because of his focus on his niche. “I knew that if I was going to stand out in Atlanta I had to provide something additional to the service that was rare... for me that was focusing on timeliness and professionalism.”

“The concept of Ideal Barbershop started way before the shop opened. I envisioned a private environment, where folks could expect to get a quality haircut as well as quality service. The concept of a professional barbershop isn’t new, I just wanted to reverse that and start with the professional in mind, first. Instead of a professional barbershop, I wanted a barbershop built for professionals.”

In 2018, Ideal Barbershop officially opened its doors in Grant Park, Atlanta. Mike partnered with MySalonSuite to create a unique experience for customers, an appointment-only barbershop.

Chaunté is the co-founder of Ideal Haircare. After working for the federal government in crisis intervention for several years Chaunté finally decided to embrace her passion to educate and empower curly hair people and embark on her entrepreneurial journey. Chaunté threw herself into the beauty space and began researching natural hair, and natural remedies for common hair and scalp conditions.

The Andrews’ are now in great space... creating and cultivating a brand that will empower the community of those who value the significance of grooming and haircare.
