What would you think of a man you'd never met, that's 6' 5", has "GIGANTUOUS" hands, is called 'Bear', and he's about to give your one-year-old his first haircut??? I wanted to say ... "AIN'T NO WAY!" But my father suggested him, so he had to be o.k. Turns out, he's great! His name should be Teddy Bear (which my son used to call him). Bear is one of the most kind-hearted and gentlest people I know...real talk. His love for God, shows in the way he treats all people, without judgment. He always lends his shop or himself to support community events. It's never done for self-glory, but because he understands that when one wins, we all win. I think he also does this because he truly believes that everyone deserves a chance at success. And yes, from time to time, a street vendor / "entertainer", comes in, but it's a neighborhood shop - what do you expect? They're more funny & social, than about business!! Just for the record, Bear is a great barber and I LLLOOVVEEE the way he arches my eyebrows. When my family began patronizing him, we could walk to his shop in 5 minutes. Since we've moved, we now drive 20+ minutes, but the distance doesn't matter, his skills and service are well worth it. It's only fair to mention the other 4 barbers there, who are just as kind and do good work, also. They've each been there for 10 years or more, with the exception of one (as of 2010). Their longevity speaks volumes about their loyalty, as well as the type of employer, Bear is to work for. Almost twenty years later, my sons (and now former husband), REFUSE to go anywhere, except Bear's - and I really can't blame them! The 2 or 3 times my sons went somewhere else, my Mother frowned and gave them money to get their hair "corrected" by Bear. By the way, thanks, Dad! (the late Robert L. Eady, Sr.) -- Donna

I'm a college student, and I really needed a place to get my hair done. I chose this place because my friend went there to get her hair done and they did a pretty good job from what I could tell. I also chose it because I knew how to get there. First off I'm going to say that I'm typically a little bit partial to the stylists and salons I use at home, but this one literally blew me away. Everyone is the salon is super nice and incredibly helpful. When I first called them the receptionist was really sweet and polite. Also, the stylist who did my hair was amazingly knowledgeable. It was obvious she knew what she was talking about and she really tried to help me out when it comes to my hair and give me tips. The only slightly negative thing I can say is that the salon is a bit tiny, and the wait time wasn't the quickest, but really what salon has amazing wait time. It was only ten minutes in the waiting area, and ten-fifteen between my washing and my styling. So, actually that was pretty amazing! Lastly, I'd definitely recommend going to this salon!
