About Voice of Vashon
Inspired Island ~ Tara Morgan
September 11th, 2022 by Grace McRae
We chat with Tara Morgan of C’Mon Barber! If you’re a longtime VoV listener, you may recognize Tara from “New Kids on the Rock”, which she co-hosted with Adam Day, or from the popular “Dear Vashon” special episodes of the Morning Scramble. But during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, a simple request from a neighbor led Tara to her new passion and business venture. After finishing barber school, Tara launched a mobile barbershop in June 2021, biking or driving to islanders to cut, groom, and style their hair in the comfort and safety of their own surroundings. Tara has since expanded offerings to include pop-up events and a new barber shop, located in a renovated van parked at the Country Store & Farm. Join us to hear why Tara believes a haircut can be powerful and how her dad’s memory inspires many aspects of C’Mon Barber. We also discuss Tara’s love for rowing and the nonprofit she founded – Seize the Oar Foundation – to champion greater inclusion in the sport, and how Tara finds community with other “solopreneurs” on Vashon Island.
