Inside these gems you’ll find a community of neighbors, friends, and family that give a small town feel in the middle of the Chicago suburbs.  You’ll see customers grab a broom and help sweep while they wait for their turn.  The basic-looking outside most often leads into a small room filled with character that oozes out the door, where all people feel right at home. Barber shop customer service is unbelievable. My husband comes home with trimmed eyebrows, facial hair, and a smile on his face because he always runs into an old friend.
