The History of BABY INC.
Johnnie Ray master barber and stylist from Enid, OK and Larry Peterson master barber from Lawton, OK had been doing free Back-to-School haircuts to the youth for three to five years.
The two met in June 2015 and begin working together at PJ’s Family Affair Salon in Enid. Both had talked how they previously enjoyed giving free haircuts to help mentor kids and reward them for good grades and obedience to their parents. Therefore, they begin to offer free haircuts year-round to local churches and community centers calling the program, “Free Fades and Braids.”
A non-profit 501-C3 was established in May 2017 entitled, “Building a Better You – B.A.B.Y., Inc.” This organization was made to reach and teach youth and inspire communities around the world.
