I had a customer not to long ago ask me if I cut hair at funeral homes.  I said yes, but why?  He was having an operation but wasn't sure he would make it and wanted to have me clean him up so his wife wouldn't have to take care of it.  I told him I would.  He asked me if he could pay now so it would all be taken care of.  I told him NO.  He made it and still comes in for his hair cut.

I started with Flattops in Hamtramck, did Punk and long hair cuts in the 80s.  Then the trend of short hair came back...but look again, the kids are now growing it out again.  I've done Mr. T cuts with beard, Mohawks, and shaved a 2 week old baby.  Nothing scares me...what ever you want, bring in a picture and I will give it my best.
