Aaron is the youngest of four children. Growing up my father was a straightforward disciplinarian, which at the time I thought he was too harsh. However, as I got
older I could see the wisdom in his words andand I can’t thank him enough for the way he raised us.

My first barber chair, the toilet in my mom and dad’s house.After I graduated high school I went straight to barber college graduating at the top of my class, passed the state board and received my license. At this point, I had no clue as to what barber shop I was going to work. I worked at Playboy’s Barber Shop in Kansas City, Kansas for a few months. A good friend, Rashima Kingsby introduced me to DeJuan Picasso Bonds, from day one we hit it off. In the barber world to date, we have become one of the most productive duos in the greater Kansas City area.
