Stepping into Donald Roberts’ barbershop is like taking a step back in time.

His is an old-style country barbershop where everything is done old-school, with three old-fashioned Belmont chairs with the standard back bar and sinks; haircuts given using only combs, clippers, and sheers; shaves provided using straight razors sharpened with leather belts and shaving cream lathered to a foam; hot towels and skin softener provided beforehand; and of course, friendly conversation with Southern hospitality.
