Also: Financial planning show expands
A new barbershop called Ultimate Shave 603 has opened in Ormond Oaks Plaza, 623 S. Yonge St., offering traditional and modern barbering. The specialty is shaving, and owner Terrence Williams offers three types of shaves: machine, basic razor, and the ultimate shave, which involves four hot towels.
“You’ll be clean and your pores will be closed,” Williams said.
Williams practically grew up in a barbershop, sweeping and shining shoes in his granddad’s shop.
“He was a cool guy,” Williams said. “He always looked good when he left for work and had a lot of respect in the community.”
His granddad inspired him to take up barbering, and the business name, 603, honors his grandad. It’s the house number where they lived.
Williams has 22 years of experience and moved to the area from Orlando to be closer the water.
He is currently seeking barbers to work in his shop.
He said his formula for success has been to have a clean, family-friendly business and put out a good product. Find him on Facebook at Ultimate Shave 603 or call 407-802-6376.
