He knows exactly how you’re going to look years from now when you’re lying in your casket; he’s already seen you. For 18 years, Greg Krupa, 38, has been the man in the suit who makes sure you are clean and dressed, your hair and nails are just right, and your shoes are shined (even if no one will see them); he is a licensed Embalmer and Funeral Director.
“The transition to barbering in the last few years isn’t that much of a leap, now there’s just more conversation than before,” he laughs, “I consider myself classically trained in the art of making you look good… even in the end.”
Greg, born in Chicago, has been married for four years; his wife is also a mortician. The two of them currently reside in Huntington Beach with their dog, Miso; their cat, Sadie; and their tortoise, Sherman (named after the English tank). In addition to owning Harbor Barber, Greg also owns a local music shop called AB Music Studios, which offers lessons, boutique gear, and instrument repairs.
Greg has asked me to extend an invitation to anyone who’s reading this to come on down to Harbor Barber, have a beer, and allow him to show you his craft; just ask for “Greg the Mortician.”
