Though he may not have to worry much about "bad hair days" himself, Jon Stone is an expert at making sure his customers don't have one when they get out of his barber chair.


For 13½ years now, Stone has worked at Jim's Barber Shop in Detroit Lakes, first as an apprentice, and then as a master barber in his own right.
