Nick and Russell Hiatt aka: Floyd the Barber
Nick took Friday off, our last day of spring break, and we headed on down to Mt. Airy, NC, or better known as "Mayberry". Mt. Airy is just a short 2 hour drive from here. Our first stop was Floyd's City Barber Shop where Nick and the boys all got haircuts. Nick got his hair cut from Mr. Hiatt. Russell Hiatt was the inspiration for Floyd the Barber on the Andy Griffith Show as he had been Andy Griffith's barber when Andy was growing up in Mt. Airy. Mr. Hiatt is the owner of Floyd's and has been cutting hair in this location for over 62 years!
And here's a shot of the boys with their haircuts from Miss Judy. Miss Judy is a real sweet lady!
And yes, it was a bit like Mayberry sitting there inside Floyd's. Locals just pop in to visit with Russell and Judy and chat with us tourists. Very friendly little barber shop!
