Clyde Oliver of Clyde’s Barber Shop in Williamstown cuts the hair of long-time customer, Kenny Smith of Corinth. Oliver recently decided to retire.

Clyde Oliver is hanging up his scissors and shears after 50 years of cutting hair.
That’s a lot of swept-up hair.
Entering Clyde’s Barber Shop on Paris Street in downtown Williamstown is like being transported into a different era.
Clyde mans the only barber’s chair in the shop and the focus is less on getting in and out and more on chatting with good friends.
