I feel like in a candy story in Prague - Kraig (USA)

Colours of Prague, a new interview series lets you meet interesting people in the Czech capital

Kraig represents the 3rd generation of a well-established barber family from Kentucky dating back to 1914. Visiting originally in 1992 he fell in love with Prague and the Czech people. Looking for a fresh start in 2010 he decided to make the move to the Czech Republic. Logically, he opened the first American Barbershop in Prague.

As a barber, he is not only constantly improving his skills, but also keen to meet new people and hear their stories. Over the years, he has served countless people including rock stars, actors, athletes and even the ex-president of the Czech Republic. In many ways, he has become an icon of Prague himself. He has been featured in TV and magazines in both Czech Republic and Germany and currently has his own show with Česká Televize. Despite his fame, he has stayed true to his trade as a barber, which is his real passion and passes on his knowledge in and around Europe thru his workshops.

Whether you need a haircut or not, just pop by at his barbershop in Smichov, enjoy a good chat with Kraig and indulge yourself with a sip of the finest Kentucky bourbon in town.
