When Gentlemen First barbershop opened their doors in west Dearborn five weeks ago, it was a homecoming celebration.
Originally located on Ford Road near , the shop relocated to a larger space in Allen Park several years ago.
But they're back, downsizing and keeping things simple at their new—and hopefully permanent—home.
The walls are already decorated with an array of pictures, sports memorabilia, and historical items from Dearborn's past–like a "No Soliciting" sign from Mayor Orville Hubbard. Flat-screen TVs allow visitors to watch whatever game is on, and a fresh pot of coffee is always brewing.
The shop offers haircuts and razor shaves, plus beard trims and color services. Discounts are available for veterans, active servicemembers, police and firemen; plus a loyalty discount where a customer's 11th haircut is free. Hate paid parking? Gentlemen First also validates.
