"Our clientele has grown older," Jeff said. "There are just not enough new faces." The two have always been together; Jeff was born two hours before Bill. They both went to Rogers High School and often cut their friends' hair. Their father, Arthur, ran Art's Barber Shop, and he encouraged them to give it a try. They both apprenticed under other barbers – Bill was at the South Side Barber Shop on 30th Avenue, and Jeff was working in Millwood. In 1961, the two formed a business partnership and took over the South Side Barber Shop. The print story for this video ran in the South Side edition of the Voice on Dec. 27, 2007.
