Scissors smith Terrell “Big T” Collins of The Cutting Edge Hair Design draws upon experience, a steady hand, and a keen eye to treat men to trim and polished cuts and skin-softening close shaves. Gentlemen can slide into a chair, where Terrell masterfully snips unkempt locks and transforms drab ‘dos according to client preferences. Like Rapunzel's publicity agent, perfectly sculpted crew cuts, fades, mohawks, or carefully ruffled coifs will draw attention to powerful hair as newly sharp gents strut from the shop. After trimming skyward strands, Big T can take to stubbly visages with a straightedge razor and hot lather, masterfully shooing away beards and mustaches and leaving skin sleek.
