I’ve been coming to Joy as my barber since my first real haircut. Joy has taken me though, dropping the curls I had as a little boy to letting a tail grow down my upper back. My two mohawk phases with instructions on using colors that wash out easily, to designs shaved into my head. I now prefer a shampoo and a short cut that fits easily under my baseball helmet. I start college in the fall and I am glad I’ll be close to home, and able to text Joy to get on her barber schedule.
