Village Barbers

The heavyweight champ of old school barber shops is Village Barbers at 9709 W. Colfax.  Been in business since 1954.  That's more than six decades of chatter about politics, the weather, and the Broncos.   Some other contenders include Drake's Barber and Beauty at 5235 W. Colfax (in business from 1952 to 1972) and handful of barbers at 7606 from 1943 to 1993.  These included the helpfully named Lakewood Barber Shop from 1953 to 1964 and the Wig Whiz (1969 only).  I will be saying "Wig Whiz" at every opportunity from now on.
