Can you help us contact a well-loved St Albans barber who has retired after 40 years of short backs and sides?
The legendary Vince, who had a shop on Keyfield for decades, has decided to call it a day.
But customers wanting to wish him well after years of service have no idea how to contact him.
Despite extensive enquiries, his surname remains a mystery, as is how to get in touch with him now the shop has shut.
Long-time customer Pete Draper of Sopwell Lane said: “Vince is such a great man and it was always so much more than just a hair cut! I’m not really one for chatting but in there, there were always stories to be told and things to catch up on!”

“He only ever wasn’t at work when he was on holiday in Italy.”

“Vince is a hugley respected. We have so much gratitude for him - everyone really valued that place and the good conversation.”
Tim said: “I would like to thank Vince for such great service over the years. He gave a brilliant service which was affordable to all. Anyone that had a haircut there will have returned just for the man he is.”
