Similar to Floyd’s barbershop on “Andy Griffith,” Opelika’s “Barber Cuts and Styles” offers straight-razor shaves, hot towel treatments and a place for community and conversation.
“This is a traditional, old-school barbershop. With the straight razors and hot towel treatments, we’re offering something very few others do,” said co-owner Paul Brumett.
Paul, along with his brother and barber David, opened the barbershop in early 2016 in the Tiger Square Shopping Center.
David, a certified, professionally trained barber, said he has spent the last three years honing his craft.
“The key to being a great or master barber is being able to clean up a mess. It’s not just being a barber,” David said. “I’ve been doing this for a little while now, and I’ve learned this: ‘whether it’s your mess-up or somebody else’s mess-up, if you can fix it to where it looks good, you’re going to do well in this business.’”
Following is a full list of services that the shop provides:
– “Edge Up” for $10
– “Classic Haircut” for $16
“Straight Razor Hot Shave” for $16
“Beard Trim” for $25
“Haircut and Beard Trim” for $24
“Haircut and Shave” for $30.
According to David, each day at the barbershop provides him an opportunity connect with his customers and strengthen his community ties.
“I just love people. It’s been an awesome experience, and I just love (what I do),” David said.
The barbershop is located at 2701 Frederick Road, and is open 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Mondays, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Tuesday – Friday and 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Saturdays.
