Ariel Caballero - Owner/Stylist
Ariel started cutting hair at the ripe old age of 12. Upon realizing that he had stumbled upon his calling he decided to make a real go of it and received his Barber license in 2001 from the Northwest College of Hair Design in Portland, Oregon and later went on to receive a Barber Stylist license from Paul Mitchell School of Cosmetology in Boise, Idaho. After working for urban barber shops in Portland for 7 years Ariel was lured to the mountains of Idaho and has never looked back. In 2012 after years of working in salons and being asked to lower his music one too many times Ariel set out on his own and opened The Gem Barber Shop. The Gem provides Ariel a place to continue to laugh, listen to good music and do great hair. On his one day off Ariel can be found walking his pugs, working on his scooters and drinking his weight in coffee.
