Wade’s Corner Barbershop features work by Master Barber Wade Mitchell.
Hi, I am Wade Mitchell, master barber and owner of Wade’s Corner Barbershop. I was born and raised here in the Bluegrass (Go Cats) and except for a brief stay on Chicago’s North Side (Go Cubs) I have lived in Kentucky all my life. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Kentucky and started my career working in the Human Resources field. After 15 years in HR I decided that I needed a change.
Spending that time in Chicago and seeing some truly great barbershops left me inspired to become a barber with the hopes of one day opening my own shop. So after leaving the HR world I enrolled and graduated from the Lexington Academy of Barbering. I have worked for shops around the Lexington area and now I am living the dream by opening my own shop in a beautiful town!
In my spare time I love listening and talking about music and sometimes get out and perform as a musician. On occasion, I’ll play guitar and sing at local wineries, parties, and civic functions as the sole member of The Wade Mitchell Experiment. I have a wonderful wife Barbara and adorable daughter Aidan, whom you may see around the shop from time to time. I also dig RC Helicopters, fine cigars, tai chi, and have taken a liking to jumping on Aidan’s trampoline!
