Chrome Artistic Barbering is seeking out people to appear on its upcoming podcast and the guest spot includes a haircut.

The shop, located in St. Catharines, Ontario, first made the announcement on January 6 via their Facebook page.

The post offers clients the chance to participate in a "haircut experience."

For $37, guests will get a haircut and style while candidly discussing their lives. 

Auditions will be recorded for potential use "in a podcast and/or documentary format," reads their website

Under Ontario's current lockdown orders, hair salons and barbershops are not permitted to open. However, film production is. 

Narcity reached out to Alicia Hirter, the barbershop's owner, who insisted that the newly adapted business is not a front or a loophole.   

Camera, lights and microphones have also reportedly been set up in the shop, a move that has reportedly been a long time coming.

"We had been offered a chance to do a podcast two other times before taking it upon ourselves," she added.
