"My shaggy hair!”
After two months, Mark Rich is finally saying goodbye to his shaggy hair.
One chair over is Hector Romo also excited to be back at his favorite barbershop.
“I didn’t want to cut it myself, I waited," Romo told News Channel 3.
“It’s been about two to three months," Romo said. "He’s the only person I get a haircut from,” he added.
The barbers at One Eleven Barbers in Cathedral City are among many barbershops now open for business.
“It feels good to be back. I missed it. It’s been two long months. We needed this,” Geroge Garcia, one of the barbers said.
“It feels awesome after this whole quarantine, it feels good to be back in the shop with my fellow barbers and get to see clients again so it feels awesome,” Noel Granados, another barber said.
Day one of being back open and their phone is ringing off the hook.
“Even the phone’s ringing right now. It’s been pretty nonstop. I think everybody got word that we’re back in business,” Granados said.
But as many people rush to get back in the barber's chair, there are some changes in place. For example, both the client and the barber are required to wear a mask.
“It’s really uncomfortable and it gets kinda hot but if it’s for my best interest and his then I’m okay with it,” Romo said.
Also, walk-ins are not welcome.
“We’re only taking appointments," barber Matthew Castillo said. "You can’t walk in. Nobody can wait. We are taking extra precautions. We’re wearing gloves and mask but we’re ready to cut some heads,” he added.
