The Apex

Jim Gaffan started working with his Dad at The Apex Barbershop on Main Street in Kingsville in 1954.  As odd as it might seem, the business was threatened by the Beatles in the 60’s when the band brought long hair to the mainstream, however the business persevered and he and is two boys are still cutting hair at the same location nearly 60 years later.

Despite the look on this boy’s face, it is an enjoyable visit.  It smells to the hilt of man tonics and shave cream, and the mirrors lining opposite walls make the room look like it goes on forever.  I took a visit after not visiting a barber for nearly 10 years and I’ve been back regularly since.  Like Jim and his boys will tell you ‘real men go to barber shops’.
