Steve Martini began his career as the personal barber to Gen. George C. Marshall, Army chief of staff during World War II, and other notables. He was then chosen by the Secret Service, since he already had high-level security clearance, to cut the hair of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. He would continue in that role for Presidents John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard M. Nixon during his years in Washington.
