A little bit from Rob: I am originally from central Florida and moved up to Maryland in 2017. I didn't know what I wanted to do but decided to go to barber school where I found my passion in cutting hair. I decided after school to go to work in a traditional style barbershop and progressed my craft to becoming a Master Barber, and most recently teaching back at the school where I graduated from. This will be a new chapter in my life where I am able to grow and learn more about this amazing industry I've come to love, and start my journey in becoming not only a Master Barber but a Stylist as well.
