After receiving his teaching license in barbering in 1966, he developed a barbering program at the Federal Reformatory in Petersburg, Virginia, where he trained young federal offenders to become licensed barbers. In 1972, Mr. McGee received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Vocational Industrial Education focusing on Cosmetology/Barbering from Virginia State College. Thereafter, Mr. McGee began using his considerable industry knowledge and experience as an instructor and practitioner with the goal of preparing upcoming barbers and cosmetologists to excel in the profession. He accomplished this through Profile Hair Care Center, where he supervised practicing barbers and cosmetologists. He further pursued his goal through Profile Institute of Barber-Styling, a company he founded in 1989 and continues to instruct and train students in the barber-styling profession and Instructor-Trainees to become certified Barber-Styling Instructors.
