When the Miami Marlins’ new stadium was built, a room inside the stadium was made for this man, Hugo ‘Juice’ Tandron, the private and official barber of the Miami Marlins, and the only official barber in all of Major League Baseball.  Thanks to him, every player on the team goes on the field looking good.  Juice has been a renowned barber in Miami for almost two decades, turning a life of crime into an American success story.  He never imagined that picking up his moms’ clippers to trim his own hair, would one day bring him from the streets of Carol City to the Major Leagues.  In 2001, he decided to turn his passion into a career by opening Headz Up Barber Shop® in Miami Gardens, Florida.

Today, the internet is filled with interviews of the Miami legend from many major news platforms such as ESPN, Univision, Telemundo, Fox News, Men’s Health, MLB News, Miami Herald, Miami New Times, IB Times UK, Washington Post, Washington Times, and Sun Sentinel to name a few.  The walls of his barbershops are filled with signatures and photos of celebrities from all walks of life.  Miami music legend PitBull, DJ Laz, actor Antonio Banderas, UFC Interim Welterweight Champion Colby Covington, baseball legends Mark McGwire, Bryce Harper, long time friend Jose Fernandez (the late Miami Marlins’ star pitcher), and many more can be seen photographed next to Juice.  

During his career he has made as low as $5 to as much as $10,000 for a single haircut.  Juice is in such high demand that some clients fly in from out of state, and some baseball players refuse to play without first getting their haircut from the Master Barber.  The tattoo over his left eyebrow reads, “Blessed,” which is the perfect word to describe his rags to riches story.  When asked what quote he lives by his response was, “I Dreamt, I Believed, I Achieved.”

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
