Yes we have one and it is a old guy who still uses clippers and cuts it short. He wears a white barber coat, regular old style chairs and a Real Barber Pole on the wall outside that turns. Mark H.

He is a original Barber from the old days. Not many of them left. Don't even think of asking for a style he won't know what your talking about nor will he do it! When he cuts your hair you see some skin above the ears and the straite edge and leather Strap comes out to trim the little hairs with to finish the job. Mark H.

That's the same way I do most of the haircuts in my Shop. LOL!! I also do flat-tops and fades for the younger guys in Town. It has been a rewarding profession for the past 12 years..... :^)

When I was a pre/teen early teen I used to shine shoes in a Barber Shop. Made good money at it. I cleaned up all the hair and took out the trash in return for a place to work and free hair cuts. I remember when Blow Drying with a hand net and hair spray for Men first started. It was funny watching the barber do it the first few times on men. Then it became a regular thing. Times sure have changed over the years. That was 40 years ago when I did that. Charged .25 for a shoe shine and .50 for a work boot shine if they were real messed up. I allways got tips when done. I could snap/pop a pretty good shine cloth and even keep a beat going. Miss those days, they were some good times hanging out with the Men hearing stories on work ethics and how to make a living. Now days they would get in trouble having some one so young working!! Mark H.
