Best Barber Shop of 2016: Old Familiar
After nearly five years in business in Olde Towne East, the Old Familiar Barbershop may not be quite that old, but is certainly a familiar neighborhood staple on Parsons Avenue. The shop has grown rapidly over the years from a two-man operation to serving customers in five busy barber chairs.
In addition to in-store operations Old Familiar began hosting the Beard Bash at the Ohio State Fair each summer, where the state’s best beards and mustaches are ranked and prizes are awarded. The shop also kick-started the Old Familiar Comb Company in 2012 with a bottle-opener-comb hybrid product that continues to sell today.
