My barber shop keeps a refrigerator well stocked with my favorite micro brews. I always seem to show up when they are busy and backed up. Big Grin

I don't have much hair these days. I tried cutting it myself... I didn't do a good job. I asked Mrs to doctor it up... five seconds later she said, "Oops!" We were due to meet friends for dinner just a couple of hours later.

I called my friend in the next town over, and rushed to her house. She cut my hair hella short to overcome the "oops," and -- for the most part -- has been my "barber" since.

Once in a while, I visit my brother and drop in on his wife's friend for a haircut. She does a heck of a nice job. I even get the "head wash" afterward, so no "itchy hairs down the back of the shirt." Gotta love that! Yeah, it costs a few bucks, but I figure it's a nice periodic treat for my noggin. Cool

ya'll got it wrong. I got this nice woman who does mine, my dads, and my son's and has for the last 7 years. She is awesome. Always wait on her. It's like a 5 minute wait also, but she gets most of the guys business.

I used to go to a first come first serve family owned barber but I just couldn't deal with the wait...Especially trying to get a haircut on a lunch break, etc.

I still go to a family owned barber (been going there for about 18 years or so) but I can set up an appointment and be in and out within a half hour.

A few months ago I decided to go find a real, old school barber shop and it was glorious!

Found a small shop in a strip mall...cash only with tons of military aviation pics all over the walls (near Luke AFB) but the best part was that the owner/barber, who was a vet, had First Blood playing on a old RCA TV with a VCR sitting on top...Nothing like getting a good haircut watching Rambo and Troutman at it!

I got damn sick and tired of scheduling a haircut a year or so ago and sought out a barber.

I haven't looked back. For a buck tip he agreed to rub his chest on me. It wasn't the same.

My wife is a stylist at a big salon. I still have to wait several days and 1/4 of the time I get handed off to someone else.

I call it "The Coven"...a drop of this, two drops of that, mix together and poof her hair changes color. That's pure witchcraft.

In my shop yesterday, I had four customers who hung around after their haircuts,to shoot the breeze, and laugh. One sat in my lazyboy recliner in the shop, and examined my new .270 Winchester rifle. I have the best job in the world! Just another day in the shop for me.


Two things bring me to tears. The unconditional Love of God,the service of the United States Military,past,present,and future.

back in the seventies there was a W.W. 2 vet. that had a barber shop , in the quad Cities, it had a pool table in the back room.

for the last 9 years he offered to let you play him for a hair cut, if you won you got the haircut free, he only lost about twice a month.

My "small town" barber raised his price effective 1-MAR from $16 to $18. Kinda bummed about that, but it beats the CRAP outta the shop close to my house that charges $30 friggin' bucks. And doesn't even give you a hot lather shave on the nape, ears, and sideburns. Went there twice...my first and last time, as mom says...

My dad cut my hair until I married... took forever because he did it in front of the TV. Bonanza, Ed Sullivan etc.

Then I went to an old school shop for decades. Single chair great guy, a Vietnam Vet. Man he had some stories! I remember once he commented about how they lived day to day never knowing when their number would be up... said he wasn't proud of it but he admitted they fucked "anything and everything that moved, human or beast" I miss that guy and his shop.

My hometown barber was a VN vet who was a dog handler and had to hump his and the dog's water. Went to real barber school after his service. Great personality and a great cut. years later he fit me in on a busy day to cut my hair for my dad's funeral. Hell of a guy. Miss that kind of service.

Local old-time barber shop near my home. Twelve bucks for us seniors on weekdays.

Owner is a fishing guy, a lot of taxidermied (is that a word?) fish on the wall.

The occasional "American Rifleman" has been spotted in the magazine rack.
