Lansing Barbershop

Lewis Miles poses for a photo inside the Lansing Barbershop. He said he has been a barber since 1966.

LANSING — For anyone wondering where Lewis Miles and his shears went after the little trailer barbershop closed down on U.S. 221 Business outside West Jefferson, find him in downtown Lansing.

Lansing Barbershop opened in April, but Miles said the storefront at 9375 N.C. 194 has a decades-old haircutting history that he is proud to carry on.

“I still do the old shave around the ears,” Miles said. “Some barbers don’t do that anymore.”

Miles said he has been a barber since 1966, and is currently only able to accept cash payment for his services.
