The Fort Scott Barber Shop will have an open house on Tuesday, May 25 at 9 a.m.
“We are ready to roll,” owner Jose Montanez said.
“There will be a drawing for free haircuts and shaves.,” he said.
“We also have vouchers ready to give to the city manager for all city personnel including police, EMT’s and firemen,” he said. “Free haircuts and shaves for 120 people.”
Jose Montanez is the owner of the shop and the other two barbers are his children: his daughter, Jaylisha Montanez, and son, Giancarlo Montanez.
His wife Mayra does bookkeeping for the business “and everything else,” Jose said.
The family has had a barbershop in Overland Park, Kansas for 20 years.
“Jose won an award for best barbershop in the midwest and the Trailblazer Award of Kansas City,” she said. “Jose started training other barbers.”
The barbershop specializes in straight razors, which give a clean, direct shave to the face, Mayra Montanez said.
