In 2011 Marcus met Kellon Akeem, who is the Co-owner of Variant Software, and became his barber and friend. While giving Kellon one of his grooming experiences, Marcus told him of a vision he had to create the Musa Lair Grooming Gallery and in July of 2016 the two embarked on a journey to create the ultimate grooming experience inside of the Musa Lair.

The Musa Lair (Musa means King, Lair means Domain) Grooming Gallery, was established August 1, 2016. Kellon and Marcus strive to cultivate a business that specializes in inspiring clients to reach their fullest potential in style, conversation & culture. Our grooming gallery is located in the historic district of East Point/College Park, GA and features a renaissance style atmosphere that contains modern day art from professional artists, vintage accessories and furniture and a library with options to enjoy while visiting. One of our goals for the year is to form a fraternity of affluent men and women that impact the youth and community through outreach and mentorship. 



The staff includes 6 talented barbers with a clientele list that includes celebrity clients (NBA, NFL, and Actors), CEOs, VPs and young professionals in various business sectors. 

Mission: “To empower and inspire the community through the Arts & Grooming.”
