As I have went to this Barber shop a few times I now see what I was told about this place. Was told not to go, but I had to go and see for my self if she was right or not. And what I found was that she was right. It seems as everyone that walks in is treated different, young, old.
I saw how each person gets a better hair cut then others, one person I saw, got a hair cut from Tommy, he spent almost 25mins on this guy, and he didn't even have much hair to cut, and the next guy not even 7 mins. I timed it. Each person gets treated different on the fact if you know these guys or not. And then as I was looking around, there was dust on products that he is selling and dust in other places. Y buy that stuff when it looks like it been setting there for years. Looks as if no one cleans when they leave work. And I also saw him give a 2 guys a shave, used the same towel for both men, and the same razor. Now that is not good, nor is that in the best health, b/c what if a little blood was on there and it got on the other person as well.
Not good..... And not once did I see him spray anything to keep someone from getting lice or anything else. Scary..
Then what happens, this big over weight guy comes in and is just so loud, cussing, talking about how he hates different people and how no one is going to tell him what to do,( Blake ) is what they call him I thank. And the whole time everyone just laughs.
Sorry but this is NO way to run a business. I will not go back and I will let everyone I know, know about this and if they do go, just watch how this is going on. Take notice when you go somewhere what is going on around you, and see if you want to spend your money there, or do just go somewhere else. Sains Barber shop. Downtown.

I won't go back. Just making people aware of this place. So next time you go there, maybe you will get lice. Just take notice of stuff around you. Then maybe you will make better judgements on where you go and where you spend your money at.. If non of them are going to make sure they keep their stuff clean and not respect the people coming in there, then why give them your time and money..

I have not been there since I was a kid because one of those barbers used to rub his privates on my elbows when I would be getting my hair cut.

I agree with you greenman. I stoped going there for some of those reasons as well. Also it seems everyone there needs to get more training on how to cut new styles of hair, that alot of the young people are gettng now days. These guys are stuck back in the 50's with the way they cut hair. So out dated. Learn some new tricks, offer hair dye coloring. They should wash your hair with every hair cut.. And yes Blake is that guys name. I think they are scared to go and get some new skills of learnig new things and ways.. Maybe Tommy will wake up one day and see that he needs to do all this.. Its all ways good to learn new things, but some are scared to learn.

I grew up with Tommy he was a child that could do no wrong, went to church with him and he is such a hypocrit talks about everyone behind their back and makes fun of them to others then acts like he is their best friend to their face. I refuse to go to his barber shop because of this and it is NASTY!! His father and mother do the same so he got it from them, his mother once visited an older lady from church then went home a called some lady's from the church a told them that the lady's house was filthy, i know the lady and i have never seen her house filthy. But on sundays at church his mother acted like she was her friend. Tommy talks about everyone, and he dosent like BLACK'S i have heard lot's of racial comments come from his mouth, tommmy makes as he is so religious but that is just for show. If no one belives me just get to be friends with him and u will see a different side of him. I know what he has said behind my back and i will not go back. And this happens to everyone that go's there.

As I too know Tommy an I will have 2 agree with that he doe put on a front, he fully know that one of his so called barbers is also a DRUG dealer.... An he too shows up at the same church . He is also married an yet carries on an affair with not only a married woman, but the real kicker is he goes both ways , yes I said it he is GAY. Well I guess I should, change that because she is know Divorced after she had to tell her husband she contracted HERPYS form Michael ,and guess what they Are still neighbors and they all go to the same Church.

You can tell he is 2 faced when you are in there. B/c as soon as someone leaves he's talking about them. IDK if he is gay or not and don't care, to each is his own, what ever makes you happy. But one thing for sure is that it is so easy to see he is putting on a front.

first of all no one cuts peoples hair in a salon or barber shop with lice, this is something you check for before you start cutting. also a babrber CANT do hair color that is for liscened cosmetologist.

Tommy does NOT check for lice at all. As soon as someone steps down and the next steps up he dont even at all look to see if they have it. I've been to barber shops all over the us and there is some that do, do hair coloring. Go to New York, or LA, or Louisville. You will find that alot of them do.

Not Correct! A Barber can do anything that a Cosmetologist can do, PLUS use a razor on the skin which a Cosmetologist cant NOT. Now you can be "Sure".

ยง 86A-2. What constitutes practice of barbering.
Any one or combination of the following practices constitutes the practice of barbering in the purview of this Chapter:
(1) Shaving or trimming the beard, or cutting the hair;
(2) Dyeing the hair or applying hair tonics, permanent waving or marcelling the hair;
(3) Giving facial or scalp massages, or treatments with oils, creams, lotions or other preparations either by hand or mechanical appliances.(1929, c. 119, s. 2; 1941, c. 375, s. 2; 1979, c. 695, s. 1.)

But you are correct about the Lice. Should always inspect for Lice, ringworm, etc... before cutting the hair. That is not things that you want spread from your place to your customers.

Look's like someone has told tommy about the site, he is the one posting under Your Not Sure. So tommy has alway's been able to spin thing's to make himself look good. I know used to be his friend stabbed me in the back more than once and even at church. I went my last time to is shop when he talked bad about MEL COHEN !!! Ten min's later he was talking like him and mel were best friends. Tommy sure dosen't practice what he preaches.

I'm new to Morganton, been here about 2 month's now, recently went to Sain's barber shop, let's say for first and last time, i was there for about 35 min's. and everything i have read here went on in that short of time. Tommy finished with a man named Glen in the chair, Glen had just got out of the door when Tommy started talking to the next man in the chair about Glen,now tommy talked nice to Glen and invited him and his family to church the following sunday and talked about the basketball games in march madness. Talk about doing a 180 Tommy didnt shut up, he put Glen down lower than whale shit on the ocean floor! He even cut Glen's wife down, saying she was a lazy good for nothing woman and that her and Glen made a nice pair.Well it was my time in the chair, i introduced myself and told him it was my first time there, and how i wanted my hair done. That went in one ear and out the other, when i left my hair was shorter than i ask for and when i got home i was informed by my wife that it was not even in the back and had 2 gaps in it. Keep in mind Tommy paid more attention to men waiting than i did to my hair cut, as he talked to them the whole time.This place is worse than a soap opera!! And yes i saw lot's of dust and a dirty towel laying on the counter beside the sink. This place should be shut down!!

seems as if you need an education what product would they use so you WONT get lice? first of all THEY wouldn't be cutting someones head if they HAD lice. Sounds like you may be a barber too so are you trying to run off their bizzness?
