05/06/2017Sport Clips Haircuts of Fultondale
I haven't been to a barbershop in years, and I had heard bad things about this place so my expectations were low... I came here with a coupon I got months ago for a free haircut so figured I'd use it.I was absolutely blown away.I hadn't gotten a haircut in months and my hair was an afro at this point. The stylist and pretty much everyone in the shop was taken aback by just how much hair I had. I didn't have the slightest clue as to what I wanted since I wasn't really knowledgeable on haircuts... so I let her take over.I closed my eyes and she began sheering away at the mammoth of hair I had. huge chunks of what looked like rose-yellow fur fell upon the floor and the barber's towel. Afterwards, she started making more precise cuts and moistening my hair with various products, all bearing a pleasant scent. After... 5 or 10 minutes, she was finished. When I opened my eyes I saw a completely different person. She head turned a huge ball of hair into a precisely cut piece of art. (I later learned it was called a thin-top). I was honestly in awe at how different I looked. Something new, unrecognizable even.I left the shop a new man. I would definitely come back here again!
It’s called Peoples Barber Shop, but the barbers are not for the people.I called Peoples Barber Shop earlier in the week looking for a new barber for my 6-year-old son. I was told that they cut children’s hair and that no appointment was needed, so I took my son to Peoples Barber Shop on Saturday, February 18, 2017, as soon as they opened at 9:00 a.m. There were two other patrons there as well. My son and I sat down and waited to be called by the next available barber when Rick said to me in a loud voice (I recognized him from his photo on the company’s website), “We don’t cut Black folks’ hair. We don’t cut Black folks’ hair because it’s different; the texture is different, so we don’t cut Black folks’ hair.” The owner, Kenny Peoples, was standing right beside him. My 6-year-old son had no idea what he said or what it meant. He was too busy playing with the owner’s dog, which didn’t care what color he was. According to Rick’s profile, he has 35 years of experience and is all about customer service and making you feel comfortable. I guess that only applies to people who are actually welcomed at the barber shop.It’s a violation of Title II of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination in public places, such as barber shops, against anyone on the basis of race. Kenny, just because you’re a business owner does not mean you can run your business any way you please. It’s a public facility, not a shop in the basement of your home. No longer can Blacks and other minorities be denied service simply based on the color of their skin or the texture of their hair. You and your employees are Master Barbers. You should know how to cut all types of hair. The Jim Crow laws were abolished in 1964 when President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

I had heard of a new barber shop in our area, that had moved here I believe from the Forestdale area, so I thought I would give them a try, back when they first opened, all I can honestly say is IMPRESSIVE!!!!!!!! my entire family ( Father, Nephew etc..) have been with them ever since. They are very good stylist, courteous, clean, inexpensive and now a monthly treat for myself. I have been meaning to give them my online opinion because I believe they have more than earned it, so if anyone out there is interested in a top notch barber then look no further..............
