Born in in Monterey, California, Hicks worked in the canneries as a young man. But he began a professional career in the civil service then moved to mechanics. This work led him to travel across the West and it wasn't until he got to Texas in the s that he experienced segregation for the first time. I was told to move and move I did," he pauses, "straight out of Texas and back to California.
A shiny, sleek and rare Rolls-Royce Phantom III automobile is tucked in the crowded studio -- artfully and expertly restored by Hicks. If one does not pay close attention to the shop's whereabouts, it could be easily missed. At the time the base was segregated and black soldiers were housed off base just outside the city limits of San Luis Obispo. Many of the first Baptist churches were established during this period to serve the men and their families.
Other young African Americans have been drawn to SLO County to attend Cal Poly to study engineering or architecture, where they played a prominent role during the s Civil Rights movement on campus, leading marches and establishing needed ethnic studies courses at the university. Terry Lee Guilford, Jr. Opening Kut To Be the Best in the summer ofhe saw the move as an opportunity to provide a service to African Americans that previously went unmet.
He specializes in razor shaves, tapers and a variety of popular hairstyles for young boys and men. The name of the shop stems from Guilford's philosophy that not everyone is cut out to be the best, but anyone can be cut to be the best.

Inthe San Luis Obispo chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People NAACP fought for the rights of the region's African American community, focusing on discrimination which took place in the form of "violations" in housing, real estate, and barbershops. At the time a local union forbade its barbers from servicing African American customers thus leaving no public barbershop in the city of SLO for African Americans or a black-owned establishment to service African Americans.
Tall and lanky, Guilford possesses a quiet but confident demeanor. As he cuts a young boy's hair, he begins to discuss the various role of the barbershop within the African American community while a young soon-to-be apprentice sweeps hair from the floor.
The place serves as a location where people -- men in particular -- gather, socialize and inquire about the activities in the community.

Guilford also views barbering as way for young African Americans to achieve economic independence. Who does not like to feel good? As a young teen, Guilford wanted to cut hair and saved enough money to buy his own set of clippers.
He started out by cutting hair at his local church. This led to a lifelong calling for him. He has spent time in Honolulu, Reno and eventually ended up opening a barbershop in Sacramento with his younger brothers before coming to San Luis Obispo. The San Luis Obispo is the second of what Guilford hopes to be many more shops.
While Guilford manages his SLO barbershop by himself, he has taken the time to give back to the community by mentoring a few young men and establishing an informal apprenticeship program. A taper fade is a haircut in which the length of the hair either decreases or increases, with longer hair on top that gradually tapers and fades to much shorter hair along the neck and just above the ears.
A good barber will use electric clippers to provide a clean hair line and a superior look. Guilford says that he is licensed to use a straight razor and jokingly says he thinks his license is really to teach men -- both young and old -- to properly groom themselves by keeping their hair trimmed and facial hair neat.
These lessons can begin at an early age. Two young African American fraternal twin boys, Calleb and Caillou await their turn at the barber's chair.
