• Old fashioned barbering

    For more than 40 years, Tom Gentry has been running a barber shop the old fashioned way.

    "It's like the one I've had all my career," he said of his new shop.

    And he's not about to change. Take this sign that hangs in his shop as an example: "A haircut without a shave is like a hot fudge sundae without a cherry on top."

    Gentry, who recently moved to Forest with his wife Elizabeth, opened up Tom's Barber Shop last month in Bedford. The shop is located in the By-Pass Business Center at 800B Blue Ridge Avenue.
