Our Staff

The name Ageez comes from owner Anthony Gathers, known as “AG”.  AG has been barbering for over 20 years and he is licensed in both barber and cosmetology with the State of Arizona.

AG discovered his passion for cutting while in high school, but his gift was birthed while attending Prairie View College, an HBCU in Texas.  AG left Prairie View and came to Phoenix where he attended International Academy of Hair Design and obtained his cosmetology license.  He later attended Arizona Barber College and received his license in barbering.  Anthony began his career at MaMoze Hair Center in Tempe, AZ where he was mentored by owners, Moses and Mattie White.

Anthony left the nest once Moses retired and opened his own shop in Chandler, AZ in 1996.  Anthony has always supported the Chandler community and the rival high schools, Chandler and Hamilton High.  God gave Anthony the vision to expand to the Southside of Phoenix and he opened September 2008.  Ageez has made its mark in the Phoenix community by hosting community car shows, Get out the Vote campaigns, Mocha Moms book nook for kids, and a tutoring program.

Anthony is married to Kim and they have four children.  Kim handles all the administrative functions of the business and Anthony handles the day-to-day operations.
