This year marks the 103rd birthday of the famous Gunter barber shop. Since the beginning years of the Gunter Hotel, the barber shop has held permanent residence in the Gunter basement, servicing clients from around the globe.
Current owner, Lee Bosman, began working at the shop back in 1975 after retiring from the Navy. From the close attention to detail to the friendly way of greeting each customer, Lee and his barbers keep customers coming back time and time again. Local businessman, tourists, and even celebrities like songwriter Paul Williams and actor, James Taylor, have stopped by the shop for cuts.
The vintage hat rack in corner, the leather-warn barber chairs, and the red, white, and blue barber pole that rotates outside the door are all testaments to the years this shop has seen, some good and some bad. However, there is no doubt that the barber shop continues to highlight the “golden days” of personal grooming with grace and elegance.
