The year was 1999, and master barber Joe Grondin was nostalgic for a bygone institution. The barbershops of old were more than a place for a man to get his hair cut: they were a place to relax, share a conversation, and sneak a bite of the peppermint-flavored pole out front. But men's grooming establishments seemed to be a thing of the past?until Grondin founded his first Roosters in Lapeer, Michigan. The new-old trend caught on, and today, the throwback barbershops can be found coast-to-coast. Men can stop by for timeless services, from haircuts to full shaves to golf advice.
