“Old reliable”∏ and “Home of the real haircut” are just two phrases customers have used when describing the oldest barber shop in Clemmons. That is because Clemmons Barbershop combines first class service and the best of small-town values to help give it its first-rate reputation. Just like in Floyd’s Barbershop in Mayberry, customers may find hours of friendly debates and discussion going on about anything from fishing, hunting, sports, current events or business. That old fashioned escape from today’s modern world is what keeps the regular customers coming back year after year, haircut after haircut.
Opening in 1960, Max Horn owned the shop until 1972 when he sold it to Benny Stone and James Hamm. It would be the longer hair styles of the '70s that would cause James to pursue other interests after a year. The same year Benny brought his brother Larry in as partner. They ran the business for over 35 years. They both continue to work at the shop today.
In 2008, Terry Brown saw only potential in the old gem. Since purchasing Clemmons Barbershop, he has developed an impressive clientele. Serving many of the fine and loyal people from Forsyth, Davie, Davidson,Yadkin Counties and beyond. Also customers who are in town on business or have moved away from the area as far away north as New York and south as Florida make sure to stop in for a good cut and a friendly conversation.
At Clemmons Barbershop, customers can choose from men’s business cuts, flat tops, high tights, buzz cuts, short and long style cuts for both men and boys, as well as any other specific requests. Everybody is WELCOME at Clemmons Barbershop.
About The Owner
Known as the ACC Barber, Terry Brown has cut hair at barbershops near N.C. State, UNC Chapel Hill, and Wake Forest. He finally returned to his roots, settling in as a barber in the area where he was raised. He thinks of it as “God’s country.” When Terry is not cutting hair, you may see him out in the community. Knowing how much Terry loves to be around people, it comes as no surprise that is also civic-minded. When interviewed in the Clemmons Courier newspaper in an article titled , “Your Neighbor”, Terry said, “I don’t have customers, I have friends who come to me for a cut. They’ve been there for me and I’ve been there for them.” As for the reason why he became a barber? “I’m a people person. In my family, I had a great uncle that was a barber. The bottom line is it comes down to personal service. I’ve always believed in hard work and I always try to treat everyone the same. I don’t care if you’re an NFL quarterback or the janitor of a school, if you are a good person, that’s what matters to me.”
