LAURINBURG — A local barbershop is offering the same services at a different location.

Richard Taylor, the owner and barber at Taylor-Made Cuts Barbershop, opened at the new location at 420 South Main St. at the end of February.

After almost six years at small shop on Church Street, Taylor said the business needed to expand. To accommodate its ever-increasing customer base, the shop has grown from two barbers to four. Taylor’s last location was across from Scotland High School.

The new location offers a spacious waiting area where customers can read the latest sports, men’s fashion and health magazines while also keeping up with the sports world with SportsCenter playing on the shop’s television.

“A lot of people tell us the shop has a modern look, but also has a traditional feel to it,” Taylor said.

Taylor and his fellow barbers offer current hairstyles and products, but traditional services as well.

“In order to get your barber license in North Carolina, we have to know how to use a straight razor,” Taylor said, adding that he specializes in traditional shaves as well at neck shaves with a straight razor.

“We try to do a little more than the other barbershops around and we try to have a nice atmosphere and make sure everybody feels comfortable,” Taylor said. “We accept all genders, races and we all try to treat everybody like family and make everybody feel comfortable.”

The barbershop is open Tuesdays through Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The shop is across from the Laurinburg First United Methodist church.

The barbershop is operated on a walk-in customers basis and is first-come-first serve.

“A lot of shops sometimes cater to one type of race, so we try to get everybody and we are skilled in all types of haircuts, so we can provide for everyone who walks in the door.”
