When Zach Owens and his wife Rebekah moved back to the Wright County area after spending a decade on the west coast, Owens saw a need for a barbershop in the area.
After all, Owens ran two barbershops in southern Oregon for 10 years, an area with a lot of similarities to that of southern Missouri. On Nov. 1, Owens officially opened Old School Barbershop across from City Hall in Mansfield. Like most “old school barbershops,” his location offers a nice waiting area offering coffee and companionship. He also used his mason skills to make a custom-made counter with “million year old wood.” His business is geared towards walk-in customers saving folks gas money from driving to a larger city. Owens offers a grades K-12 discount, high visibility shirt discount ($4 off), scrubs discount (15%), “if you think you are old” discount (10%) and a 5% military discount. Both Zach and Rebekah met when living in the West Plains area many years ago. Owens is a military veteran.
Hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday.
