Master barber Akeem Akway is driven, talented and a standout in his field, and now his work is garnering both attention and accolades. He was born in Ethiopia. When he moved to the states 15 years ago, he knew his name would be on a building someday.
On March 28 a local man’s decades-long career is coming to an end. Brooklyn Park barber Denny Brummer will put down his clippers for good. He’s been cutting hair since he was 18-years old.

When Bud Moen first picked up his comb and shears, Dwight Eisenhower was president. Ten presidents and 58 years later, Moen is still clipping away.
The first “clipper clinic” has arrived on West Broadway in Minneapolis.
Winona barber Tom Schneider is swift with scissors, but he also has a few tricks up his sleeve.
