It seems most places to get a haircut are for the ladies. However, we found one just for the guys.
It is a nice, neat and non-expensive salon, and it’s known as The Barber Shop. The shop is also referred to as The Southport Salon for Men, and it is located in the 7700 block of Shelby Street, near the Greenwood Park Mall.
“They do a hot shave and everything else if you want it,” said client David Carlson. “They wash your hair, give you a hotel towel, a massage and do great job of cutting your hair.”
Many of the customers also like how each cutting area is private.
“I like the cubicles, mainly because I can tell my son to stay in here when he comes with me to get his haircut,” said client Chris Henderson.
"I mean you're comfortable right away,” said client Kurt Moore. You come in, you have a cup of coffee, you relax, you get your hair cut. It's like family here.”
Additionally, you can also watch TV while getting your hair cut, each cubicle has its own TV.
The price is $12.50 or $12 for cash. The shop does not need to advertise, it is almost all “word of mouth.”
“One of our biggest clients are kids, or soon to be men,” said manager Kurt Krombach. “The kids think they've entered manhood by getting the shampoo, and the back massage. They are just like, ‘wow,’ I've entered the big time now!”
