It’s probably ironic that Ed Price has been doing something for five decades that he didn’t really want to do in the first place.
Yet 50 years later, Price is still working at his craft as an old-fashioned barber and is believed to be one of the few left in Barrow County.
“Of course, I didn’t think that far ahead back then,” Price said recently as he took a break during a weekday of hair cutting. “Even after I started doing it, I wasn’t sure I wanted to stay in it. Since I never stopped, suddenly the years started going by and here I am still going.”
Price’s journey began after he finished his stint in the United States Air Force. He was asked about the possibility of becoming a barber by Mayfield Camp Sr., who would eventually train him.
Price said while Saturdays used to be the most hectic work day for barbers, it varies now. Usually Tuesdays are his busiest days since he is closed Mondays. - Photo by Jessica Brown
