First haircut

Chris Frye, 1, was the first customer at his father Chris' Frye's Barbershop at the former Ledyard Center School on Sunday, Feb. 21, 2020. 

"He did a great job, he sat there pretty quietly and got hairy M&M's all in his mouth," said the elder Chris, of giving his son his first haircut. The second haircut of the shop was given to Frye's grandfather Ed Mitchell by his cousin and coworker Justin Caras.

"I never thought I'd be cutting (hair) in my elementary school," said Frye, who has long dreamed of opening his own barber shop in Ledyard. "I think I ate some hairy M&M's when I was here."

"We're starting off with veterans and babies here," said Caras as he cut his grandfather's hair next to where his official Marine Corps portrait hangs on the wall. The shop officially opens next week. For appointments, see their Facebook or Booksy page.
