Behind the namesake company Quincy Carr, Inc. is a young man with many God-given talents. Quincy Carr was born in Houston, raised in Austin, and this through-and-through Texan has spent a lifetime becoming the entrepreneur behind a company comprising a variety of services encouraging laughter, positivity, and customer satisfaction on a global scale. Quincy Carr, Inc. is quality entertainment and “Cuts & Styles by Quincy Carr”.
Through the encouragement of a co-worker, Quincy tried an open mic night at a Virginia Beach comedy club… and fell in love with the art and science of making people think and laugh.Quincy’s talent quickly moved him from emceeing at local comedy spots to featuring and headlining at clubs, corporate functions, and other venues throughout the country. Since 1999, he has worked with top-level comedians including Bobcat Goldthwait, Kevin Hart, Mike Epps, Bruce Bruce, Ricky Smiley, and Sommore, who in 2007 invited Quincy to be her opening act at what became Quincy’s very first homecoming performance.
The “Cuts and Styles by Quincy Carr” concept began in the early 1990’s, when Quincy started cutting his own hair, then friends’ hair, and quickly became known as the “Mobile Neighborhood Barber”. Upon his graduation from Austin’s Westwood High School, he joined the U.S. Navy, serving nearly four years. Before receiving an early honorable discharge due to injuries he suffered onboard his ship, Quincy continued to develop his craft as a barber. He remained focused on someday owning a business as a licensed barber, and even as he maintained a number of full-time jobs to help him further his goals, he began to develop and service an extensive client list in earnest in 2003. By 2006, the final pieces of Quincy’s original concept imagined in the early 1990s became reality when he enrolled at the Virginia Beach Beauty and Barber Academy.
Bringing it Together
By 2008, Quincy was a college graduate when he achieved two major goals – becoming a Licensed Barber and Trained Instructor in the state of Virginia, and incorporating Quincy Carr, Inc. Quincy is inspired to continue his hard work in honor of the promise to his parents that he will be a positive leading example to others. Quincy believes that with a strong faith in God, and a strong belief in oneself with hard work, all things are possible!
