It was the weekend .. and James was scheduled for a date Saturday. It was already 2 weeks since his last cut. He wasn't impressed with his last 'look' so he started scouring the web for the best South Tampa barbershop around!

That same day he made an appointment with one of our #CutKings and he's been a loyal customer to us since!
