Willie Ailstock, minister at Oak Ridge Baptist Church, has opened a barber shop in Mason.

From saving souls to shearing locks, Willie Ailstock sees similarities in pastoring and barbering.
“I’ve always felt this profession (barbering) is a service profession,” he said. “You are serving your community and you should do it with a smile because you are enjoying it because you want to do it not because you have to.”
Ailstock, who is the minister at Oak Ridge Baptist Church in Williamstown, has opened his own barber shop next to Bruce’s Grocery in Mason.
