With the help of friends, the house was remodeled, allowing me to cut hair in the front and to live in the back. It was an exciting time for a 21 year-old barber! Immediately many of Huntsville’s most respected citizens and many of the SHSU students came to give us a try.
By 1979, we had outgrown the little house and bought out a small salon at 1522 Sam Houston Avenue. Over the next 11 years, we tripled in size and felt it was time to make “the move.”
In 1990 we were able to purchase the building that is the current home of The Facemaker. Most of the building had been gutted. The walls and support beams were the only remaining structures from the original building. Almost everything else has been added.
