City barber shop is best place in town to talk

LITTLEFIELD, TX (KCBD) - It's conversations about the past and the changes to come that make small town barber shops a great way to waste-away a day.

Since 1966, owner Babe Banner, 81, has been running a shop downtown. He says it is the best place in town to talk, barbering, fishing, and football.

The shop is even complete with its own mini-museum. Banner puts up pictures of all the past Littlefield football players who have gone on to play in college and graduate. He says throughout the years he can't even think to count how many people have sat in his chair.

"Several generations have gone through," says Banner. "First haircuts and then they grow up and they bring their kids for their first haircuts and then the next generation does the same."

Banner says even Waylon Jennings used to get his haircut there and would make sure to stop by when he would come back into town.
