Um but really the stories about him he used to cut my hair and i used to hate his haircuts uh he’d just give me like buzz cuts and uh i got sick of it by the time i was 13 so i was like uh i’m not gonna let you cut my hair let me let me try and cut my own hair and as a 13 year old cutting your own hair is not going to be highly successful i ended up with like pushing back my hairlines and ending up with like cheetah spots in my head actually i still wear hats because i still have a complex about how i used to mess up my hair but what i realized the hardest part about cutting the hair was to get those precision lines and detailing down and i kept pushing back my hairline so i created a template stencil tool to put against my head to cut my hair and uh my hairlines and and edge ups ended up being near barber quality and i used this tool for like 15 years and that tool ended up being what the company’s built on the cut buddy shaping tool now um but i sat on this invention for 15 years didn’t really know that i had anything until my wife pushed me to uh kind of show up for my life i was content with my job and stuff but she knew that i could do bigger and better things so
