Cut and a shave
When long-time Birmingham Barbers owner Jim Farhat passed away, Anna Canisz, a barber at the shop for the last 23 years, wasn’t going to let the place close. Instead, she bought it. As of January 1, 2021, Canisz is the owner of the Birmingham Barbers, 725 S. Adams, Suite 110, Birmingham, which is celebrating 55 years in business taking care of hair. “He (Farhat) opened it in 1966,” Canisz said of the shop she shares with four other barbers. After taking over the barbershop, they remodeled, added a coffee machine – which is still on hold during the pandemic – passing out free water, and offering free beard trims with their $18 haircuts. Birmingham Barbers also offers women and children haircuts, and happily does house calls for homebound individuals. “We have lots of free parking spaces, and there’s lots that are handicapped accessible,” Canisz said.
