Floyd's City Barber Shop.

Floyd's City Barber Shop

What a fun stop! The son of the barber who cut Andy Griffith's hair was there (he does not cut hair). He is so fun to talk to, and takes your picture in the chair Andy used and posts it on his website. This was our favorite spot of the town.

Floyd's Barber Shop

Contrary to an earlier tip, Russell Hiatt was not the inspiration for Floyd on The Andy Griffith Show, but the barbershop itself where he worked for decades -- starting when he was a young man -- may have been. The shop was re-named Floyd's to capitalize on the show's popularity. Russell Hiatt said he cut Andy's hair once while Andy was home from college. Russell was a beloved local figure.
