A much-missed St Albans barber is returning to the city to hand over the scissors to his successor.
Hassan Choudhury is the new owner of the Vintage Barber Company, formerly Vince’s Barbers, in Keyfield Terrace.
He has taken over the business following the retirement of Vince Santonastaso.
“There have been a lot of enquiries about Vince since he retired. The barber shop is due to re-open within the next few weeks.
“I have arranged with Vince to attend the grand opening to celebrate all the work that he has accomplished and give him the goodbyes that he deserves.”
