Newhall’s Barber Parlor offers more than just a haircut

by Asher Wenrich 20 views0

A haircut is typically more of a nuisance than an enjoyable activity, but a barbershop in Newhall is trying to change that.

Enter J. Powell’s Barber Parlor, a warm and inviting barbershop located on Lyons Avenue.

It is owned and operated by Jemal Powell, a man who focuses on the family aspect of the shop more than just the business.

“Everybody that I meet, that I cut, becomes extended family,” said Powell.

Powell has employed his familial mindset, likable personality and supreme barbering skills to create a shop that makes a haircut more than just an annoying occurrence.

“Jemal does a very good job at making you feel welcome and warm,” said Chris Troy, a patron of the shop. “It’s almost like you’ve been there a thousand times your first time.”

Whether it be from the big band-centric music from the record player, or simply the retro feel that the shop gives off, Powell has created a welcoming environment that turns an ordinary activity into an extraordinary experience.
