Floyd's 99 Barbershop

Floyd's 99 Barbershop

Okay so if you’re in a major metropolitan area, you have probably seen these places popping up everywhere.  The architecture and layout really peaked my interest, so after 5 years of giving myself a buzz cut, I figured this would be the best place to get back into the swing of things.

When I walked in, I felt comfortable right away.  The walls are lined with rock-and-roll posters and there are TV’s everywhere to keep your A.D.D. mind busy. 

Imagine the alternative

But, as you start observing a little more, your realize that it is still a hair salon under the guise of a dude hangout.  The big giveaway was all the up to date hair products lining the walls.

To be honest, I didn’t mind.  The place was pretty cool and the prices are pretty reasonable (about $21 for a haircut).  I got in and out of there pretty quickly too. 

And for the haircut?  It was decent and did the job.  In my book, all these things equate to a pretty good place to get your hair cut for a twenty. 

You can check them out online for locations or more information.
