Lakeside Barber and Shave Parlor
In 2014, Apple Valley residents Jason and Jamie Huffman had a vision-- a vision that they wanted to make a reality. This vision became Lakeside Barber and Shave Parlor-- something the couple said seemed like a need for Apple Valley. “We wanted to be Apple Valley’s best kept secret, a destination shop for Knox County, and a hometown shop for Howard and Apple Valley.”
When asked what makes their shop stand out from other shops that specialize in some of the same services, Jason said, “We throw time out the window. We step BACK in time.” He goes on to say that, “we are about creating the experience, not just the cut.
The Huffman’s have quite the resume, too. They may be new to the barbershop field, but they are no strangers to managing, owning, and coaching. Between the two of them, they have owned restaurants, a commercial cleaning company, they’ve managed businesses and Jason currently coaches third and fourth grade girls’ basketball for East Knox.
When asked how easy it was running a business with his wife, Jason laughed and said, “easier than running our home!” Combined, the couple has 10 kids: three each and four adopted-- nine being girls. “But Jamie is great,” said Jason. “ I met her at school. Her passion to be a full service barber is amazing. People always say we make a great team.”
Their vision isn’t done yet. The couple has hopes and goals for 2018 and beyond. “We are hiring in 2018. We want a second location somewhere in Knox County. A small spot with several barbers. We would also like to one day see the entire Pier Plaza be really cool with all kinds of great service type businesses. We are also anxiously awaiting more space in our unit to add more services to our business.”
We HIGHLY recommend stopping in! Grab a soda, beer or water from the fridge and relax. Prepare to be pampered and get to know the Huffman's and their loyal clients. You are definitely made to feel special here! You wont regret the service or experience!
Lakeside Barber and Shave Parlor is located at 21735 Plank Rd. in Howard! Behind the new Town Center.
