ADVICE ON GOLF
For what it’s worth.
The barbershop was an American cultural icon from the early nineteenth century through the late 1960s. For generations, the barbershop was a way of life; a place to relax, enjoy great conversations and get a fine haircut and classic shave. Over time barbers built personal relationships with their clients that lasted a lifetime.
As men’s style changed, the unisex craze swept across America and barbershops almost disappeared. Men’s options for getting a haircut changed over time and men started going to salons that were devoid of everything they enjoyed about getting a haircut. These modern salons were missing the classic touches of the American barbershop.
In 1999, Joe Grondin, a Master Barber with over 30 years’ experience, opened the first Roosters in Lapeer, Michigan. Joe’s goal was to step back in time and re-establish the traditional men’s Grooming Center. He wanted to create an atmosphere that evoked the feeling of a classic American barbershop, focused on providing quality service to men of all ages.
From the moment our clients arrive, it’s as though they have stepped back in time to a simpler way of life. At Roosters, we get back to basics, encouraging our clients to relax and unwind in an atmosphere reminiscent of the past, and our first priority is meeting the unique needs of each client.
