In January, the Fort Huachuca Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation re-opened The Corner Barbershop II, located inside Desert Lanes bowling alley, Building 52010, with new management and staff.

Renate Whitehead, the barbershop manager, and her staff are now available to provide haircuts in a convenient location, close to the Exchange, commissary and furniture store. “The location is good,” said Whitehead. “We are hoping that we will get more business once people learn that we are now open.”

Along with Whitehead, three other hairdressers, Patricia Aviles, Manuela Hick and Tonya Soto transferred from the other Fort Huachuca barbershops. Previous clients who are looking for any of them specifically should call 456.6614 to schedule an appointment.

Hours of operation are weekdays, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Saturday, 9 a.m. – 2p.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Walk-ins and appointments are welcome. According to Whitehead, the best time to come for a walk-in haircut is right after the shop opens in order to avoid having to wait. Sunday and Monday are the busiest days. During the week, the busiest times are during lunch hours, and walk-ins should expect a small wait.

The barbershop specializes in military haircuts, along with other short styles, abiding by the different branch regulations. A haircut, from start to finish, typically lasts 10 – 15 minutes and costs $8.

For more information, or to schedule an appointment, call 456.6614.
