A Decade of Rock, People, Scissors: America's Original Rock n' Roll Barbershop(R) Turns 10

/ Source: GlobeNewswire

DENVER, March 17, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clipping away the moments that make up a dull day, America's original rock n' roll barbershop has been replacing the status quo with style and a stress-free zone for a full decade now. This year, Floyd's 99 Barbershop for Men and Women turns 10.

Located coast-to-coast in many of the major cities across the U.S., Floyd's 99 is the fastest growing group of barbershops in the country. Besides their own radio station, Floyd's 99 also has their own version of The Wall, where the gods of Rock gaze down upon sleek, black leather barber chairs and an elite team of stylists and barbers, many who look like rock stars themselves. Think: Pink Floyd meets Floyd the Barber.

"And then one day you'll find, ten years have gone behind you…"  - Pink Floyd, Time

Floyd's 99 started as a single barbershop in Denver, Colorado.  Known for their high-end services like hot-lather shaves and expert hair coloring for men and women (all at lower-end prices), Floyd's 99 now has more than 50 shops in ten states, with plans to open another 50 by the end of 2012.  If you don't already have a Floyd's 99 near you, it won't be long until one is kicking around on a piece of ground in your own hometown.  Visit floydsbarbershop.com for a location near you.

If Rolling Stone ever opened up a barbershop, it would look like Floyd's 99.  Katy Perry uses one shop as the backdrop for a scene in her Hot n' Cold video; HBO Entourage stars appear in front of another; and several reality TV shows have filmed their contestants getting rock star makeovers there.  The brainchild of the O'Brien brothers, the first shop opened in 2001.
