<p>Tucked around the side of 9920 Watson Road is the only barbershop remaining in Crestwood. The little two-foot sign outside looks as if it belongs in the North Pole, directing elves to Santa's workshop.</p> <p>Once inside, customers can take a trip back in time to an era when men visited barbers and women sat in beauty-shop chairs under hair-dryer hoods. Mr. John James and his wife have operated Crestwood Hair in its current location since 1972, but Mr. James has been a barber in Crestwood since 1959. Although retirement is their next and welcome stop, hints of pride and sentimentality are detectable as they describe their loyal customers of forty-five years and the merits of barbershops versus chain hair salons.</p> <p>Visit Crestwood Hair for a classic haircutting experience complete with eye candy for retro-furniture&nbsp;aficionados, stories galore for history buffs and the James' lovable dog.</p>
