During this episode, the guys were able to have a conversation about the in and outs of barbering from an interesting perspective. They were joined by shop owner; Corey Holt, shop manager; Kaleb Dunn, and fresh-faced (and bearded) barber; Aaron Lee. The difference in perspective and personality from each of our guests represented what Stay True is all about; Who you are and what that brings to the table...Also, movie quotes... lots and lots of movie quotes.
