Being a great barber, building long-term relationships, and taking care of your community can be a snap if you know how to do it just right.
Just ask Matt Huck, owner of Matt’s Barber Shop, 1032 U.S. 31 South, Greenwood.
He’s been a pillar in the Greenwood community for several years. He cares about his customers and neighbors, offering both a helping hand and a welcoming attitude. He knows how to make people feel at home.
“Barbering, to me, is more than just cutting hair, and more than just a job,” Huck says. “It has given me a platform to serve the community in a positive way. Building relationships and helping people feel good about themselves are an important part of my mission in the barbershop.”
Matt’s Barber Shop is the kind of place where you comfortable as soon as you walk in the door. It has a positive “come on in and take a load off your feet” feel to it. Huck has gone out of his way to make it that way.
Huck has been a barber for 15 years, and in that time, he has come to realize how a “good haircut can really touch someone and change their day or week.” It can also make them feel better about themselves.
“That’s why I fell in love with barbering,” Huck says. “The smile, the handshake, or the pat on the back, are all a part of the atmosphere of my shop. Everyone is welcome. We proudly serve the Greenwood community and the surrounding area.”
Matt’s Barber Shop, which started in 2011, “specializes in gentlemen’s cuts, kids’ cuts, custom cuts, taper fades, bald fades, scissors cuts, beard trims, razor shaves, and razor line-ups,” according to Huck.
Huck says that spring is an extremely busy time, but he can always squeeze people in.
“We like being busy, and we make sure people keep coming back,” he says.
Search No Further
Some people spend their whole lives looking for the right barber. With Matt’s Barber Shop, you can stop the search. Huck’s team makes sure you are happy with every cut. They have been cutting hair for years, and are friendly and talented.
“We have a great group of barbers here,” Huck says. “Our customers are loyal and keep coming back because we do an excellent job. Our customers walk away happy with their haircuts.”
Customer Appreciation Day
Huck is excited about his Customer Appreciation Day, which is from 11 a.m- 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 29. There will be free haircuts, free t-shirts, food, drinks.
The Greenwood Fire Department will also be there for a meet and greet with the Community. They will have a fire truck on-site, and there will also be a bounce house.
Contributions will be accepted for The Greenwood Fire Department.
