The idea of owning a barbershop came after our son, Paden Stone, and our son-in-law, Tony Hall, decided to pursue careers as barbers. Paden worked with the late Bill Fleming and Max Floyd at City Barbershop for two years after finishing Starkville Barber College. Tony worked in Tupelo at Varsity Barbershop after also finishing Starkville Barber College. Gary and I purchased the building at 112 East Main Street from my father-in-law Earl Stone. We immediately began restoring the building. We wanted to be historically correct and worked closely with the local Historic Committee to keep with the originality of the building. Restoration began in January 2012 and we opened The Barber’s Chair in May of 2012. Today, the business continues to thrive thanks to all our local and out of town customers.
