During that time Mrs. Hernandez also earned a degree in business administration, later returning to Laredo to work for a nonprofit organization for many years. It was until 2007 when she was forced to stop working to start caring for one of their children who had been diagnosed with a life threating illness.

She also devoted her time to volunteer for Make- A- Wish, Relay for Life, Starlight Children's Foundation, Laredo Pediatric Cancer Support Group. In 1998 Javier graduated from Texas Barber Colleges in Dallas, Tx.

When I joined TBEA I didn’t know how to cut hair and was very nervous at the time but with the guidance of Mr. and Mrs. Hernandez I was able to develop skills and grow in other areas. It has been an amazing experience attending TBEA and I will forever cherish this opportunity.

I would like to say I feel very accomplished. When I started the Barber Education Academy I had no prior experience in doing fades or how to use a razor or any type of men’s cuts. I really learned a lot from Mr. Hernandez our instructor. I hope to one day you get to his level in the barber industry.
