What started as a fun source of income for Darius “Cali Barber” Walker has led to his legacy. The highly sought-after Nashville, Tennessee-based licensed barber has created Cali Barber Beard and Loc Oil for use on your hair and skin. The multipurpose product is popular among men and women from diverse backgrounds and is attracting increasing interest. With names inspired by Walker’s customers, Lemon Q, Butta, Georgia Boy, and OnGod, are each specially formulated to moisturize, soothe and stimulate. The essential ingredients include Black Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Eucalyptus, and more.
Walker comments, “Lemon Q came about because of its fresh lemon scent. It’s vibrant, refreshing, and wakes up your senses. The “Q” is from the model on the bottle, Stephen, a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. The ingredients are Black Seed Oil, Lemon Citrus and Eucalyptus.”
He continues, “Butta came from my client, Tyrone Lee, a retired fireman from Chicago. He said, ‘Cali, I got one word for this oil you put on my face — butta!’ The ingredients are Black Seed Oil, Orange Citrus and Vanilla.”
“Georgia Boy came from, Kelsea Fordham, a high school football coach, here in Nashville. He always says, ‘I’m from the country, Cali. Just a Georgia boy.’ So, I coined that term for all of my clients who are from the country. The ingredients are Black Seed Oil, Coconut Oil and Spearmint.”
“OnGod comes from DJ Cevan, a well-known DJ throughout Tennessee. He always says, ‘Cali this beard oil is A-1, on God.’ A lot of young people use this catchy phrase. The ingredients are Black Seed Oil, Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Bergamot.”
Here are some of the reviews for his products:
“Lemon Q is light on my locs, not greasy and my locs smell fresh after applying. I am sensitive to smells and it’s important to me that my locs smell good. Also, I love how good it smells on my husband.” — Meco, Dean of Students at KIPP Charter Schools, Nashville, TN
“Cali’s by far the most talented barber I’ve ever met. I’m always getting compliments on my cut. This beard oil is on another level. The smell, the tingling sensation, the gloss it gives my beard. It’s hands down the best beard oil I’ve ever encountered.” — Stephen Isadore, a Metro Nashville Schools police officer.
Walker’s Cali Barber brand pays homage to his west coast roots, but he is known in and around Nashville as Antioch’s A-1 Barber. His precise cutting style is the reason for his tagline: “Fire your barber, my cutz harder.” He promotes professionalism and stellar customer service in an uplifting environment that gives life-changing experiences.
“Getting the money is great, but I love when clients tell me what happened after they leave my chair. The dudes get praise from their women, they go on job interviews and get the job; I’ve done groomsmen for weddings and graduations. I also encourage kids to do well at home and in school, so they can earn free haircuts,” shares Walker whose products and services are a vital part of his community.
