Elizabeth Amponsah: Meet Gh Lady Barber, determined to succeed in a male-dominated profession.

 A success in the male-dominated space, Ghanaian barbers are determined to replace Amponsa, who has just opened and is planning a shop

lthough women face tough challenges in a male-dominated area, Elizabeth Amponsah has made impressive strides as a barbar and has become a crowd favorite in Osu, Accra.

With years of experience, Amposah believes that her gender should not prevent her from pursuing a career that is considered a male preserve.

Her hairstyling company, The Classic Barber Shop, was an investment she wanted to make because she was determined to thrive in a male-dominated space.

Despite making huge profits, Amponsah recalls that some customers were surprised to meet her at the shop.

“If they surprise me, I surprise them too. Some people come and ask if i am the one to shave them; I say yes. I'm not afraid, " So I will surprise him," she added.

Amponsah told TV3's George Kwaning that she has plans to expand her business but is now focusing on building the brand in Ghana before looking elsewhere. A single mother produces GHc400 on a good day and makes between 100 and 200 sitting on a bad day at work.
