Walk along Jackson street in Wylie and there it is. A throwback to childhood. Just beyond the friendly “old brown dog” (that’s his real name name), and behind the door.

Just like in the old days. Just like the inside of Gayler’s Barber shop. There’s the bass on the wall, still the third biggest in Texas history, he says. An American flag in the window, deer antlers here and there. And customers who have been getting buzzed for generations.

And the haircut could have come with some of that politically incorrect stuff. Customers like Peter Russell don’t mind it. He brought his 10-year old.
