COTTONWOOD - "It's something good and new for this town," says Anthony Pinn, co-owner of the new Elevated Touch Barber Shop at 977 S. Main St. in Cottonwood.

Pinn, along with wife Candice McCoy-Pinn and co-barber Sergio Tadeo, have somehow pulled-off a fresh, contemporary take on the traditional barber shop experience.

"The shop specializes in new style fades and line designs, but we also include a hot lather shave around ears and neck at the end of all haircuts," Pinn said. "Kids are welcome and senior citizen haircuts are only $13 for those 55 and up."

The shop is sleek and spacious, with Kobalt toolbox work stations, coiled pneumatic hoses and classic black seating. While the entrance is flanked by time-honored red, white and blue barber stripes, a nod to contemporary style is provided by an LED barber pole.

"We provide an entertaining atmosphere for our clients to wait in," said Pinn. "We have a large screen TV to provide the latest and greatest on news and sports. We also have a pool table for clients to play while they wait, as well as WiFi."

The shop is open six days a week (7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday). An extra-wide entry door faces a wheelchair ramp to a large parking lot. And to coach undecided customers, a visual menu of haircuts is posted on the wall.

Pinn has honed his skills cutting hair in Cottonwood for the past five years. He started when he was 17-years-old, cutting hair out of his mother's home in Yuma.

"My wife was raised here and though it would be a great place open a shop. So my first job was in a Cottonwood barber shop. As far as any young guys at that time, there was none," said Pinn.
