WAKEFIELDâ€”Three barbers at Jordanâ€™s New Style snip, clip, and chat on Wakefieldâ€™s Main Street.
The previous barbershop relocated after a flood destroyed what had been a cozy basement spot filled with pool tables and the usual haircut mischief. The shopâ€™s owners decided not to sign a new lease and instead moved to a new spot on Columbia Street.
