Barnes Barber Shop

Barnes Barber Shop is a beloved piece of functional nostalgia in downtown Guntersville. 

Barnes Barber Shop won The Advertiser-Gleam's Best Barber Shop award for Reader’s Choice 2022. While the superb quality of Barnes is well-known, the deep historical and family-bound aspect is not nearly as known.

The current team of barbers started with Colin Barnes back in 1964. He had been a barber in Huntsville for about 2 years before deciding to come to a barber shop in Guntersville simply because it had better hours. Little did he know he would leave a memorable mark on downtown Guntersville as he stayed there over the years into the present day, where he still cuts hair part-time. His son, Daren Barnes, has been in the same store cutting alongside his father for 30 years.
