The Gentlemen's Barbershop by Bissuett is now proudly serving our community by providing sensory-friendly haircuts year-round at affordable prices!

The shop also has a stylist that provides haircuts for girls! They know getting a haircut can be difficult on the senses. The lights are dim, the noise is minimal, and breaks are taken when needed. They cater to each individual's needs. They offer communication boards and fidget toys as needed as well.
