Iconoculture: Not everyone thinks a highfalutin salon is necessary for a good haircut. These consumers may be more apt to frequent Barber Stops, self-contained barber “shops” or kiosks that can be easily set up in larger retail settings.
Shaped like giant iconic barber poles, the shops have enough room inside for barber and customer. No appointments necessary, and haircuts cost $11. There are currently four Barber Stops; the owner is working with Mid-States Distributing Company (home, farm and fleet retail organization) and Home Depot to set up shops nationwide.
