“I’ve been in the business since 1965,” he tells me hurridely on the phone, as he’s clipping away. Vic at one point owned a chain of beauty salons, with over 80 employees by the late ’70s. “Everyone had long hair back then,” he says, explaining the success of that businesss. “But then they started cutting their hair again, so I sold that and opened a barber shop.” That was in 1993. We expect he’ll be at Almon for another 15 years, at least.
