Barber poles seem to be a rarity these days with so many men opting for "styled hair" at salons. But, here at Dixie Barber Shop, two brothers still cut hair for $10. You get to sit in a regular barber chair, and you can read area newspapers and catch up on man talk while you wait.
There's still a lot to be said for a barbershop haircut. I know men who have moved to the big metros...yet still return to Selma for a haircut, because they can't find anyone else who knows how to cut hair right!
All that said, this barber pole symbolizes a whole lot more than a haircut. It seems barbers once performed tooth extractions and bloodletting! Read all about it HERE!
Oh, yes that's my self portrait in the bottom of the pole.
