Wes Williams says he’s getting more requests now for 1950s and ’60s style haircuts than anything else. Some of the most popular cuts men are sporting now include the Pompadour, Ivy League and Ducktail. Astronaut Neil Armstrong sported a sharp crew cut.

Elvis Presley defined his slicked back pompadour with pomade.

Elvis Presley also combed and recombed the back and sides of his dark hair into a ducktail.

Actor James Dean had thick hair, perfect for a touseled pompadour.

There’s a hole-in-the-wall barbershop on School Street. It’s got a single barber chair and a small wash station in the back. A collage of pages torn from magazines adorns the back wall, with images of women in bikinis, men in suits and gleaming alcohol ads, interspersed with children’s drawings.

Resting on a low shelf is a bottle of Knob Creek Whisky and a couple of glasses. A vintage set of clippers and a straight razor are framed in a shadowbox on the wall, along with a five-foot-long set of decorative shears. A couple of guys wait in wooden chairs by the window for their turn under the clippers.
