The Captain’s Chair

In Vermilion, Ohio, the barber shop is located in the heart of downtown.  In view of Vermilion’s long nautical heritage, the shop is called the Captain’s Chair.

The Captain’s Chair is a barber shop in its unadulterated form.  There is no pretense of hair styling, or unisex salon trendiness.  The barber pole is in its classic form, if a bit battered.  There is a red and white striped awning, scissors and comb are shown on the big front window, and old-fashioned barber chairs inside.  As you walk by, you can see men getting their clipping or thumbing through magazines as they wait their turn.
