Barber Shop

Barber Shop

This is a local barbershop about a mile from our house though not my barber; I frequent a barber much closer to our home. Barbershops are extremely common. There are at least a dozen within a mile radius of our house. Haircuts cost $0.60; a shave is an additional $0.20.

 Most of the barber shops open by 8 a.m., close after 9 p.m., are open seven days a week and are owned and run by one person. Many shops in town (carpenters, metal workers, mechanics, food stands, etc.) have the same hours. Employees will nap on the floor during the hottest part of the day. I recently woke my barber from a nap to get a haircut. He opened his eyes, stretched, stood, asked how my day was going and got to work.
