WILLIAMS, Ariz. - After working as a barber in the Valley for several years, Williams native Louie Lucero has returned to town to cut hair here.

Known as "Barber Lou," Lucero has cut both men's and women's hair for 38 years.

"When I started cutting hair I just didn't want to be a barber," he said. "You've got to make yourself very versatile or else you're not going to survive."

Besides cutting hair, Lucero also does perms.

Lucero started working in Williams on May 27. He said he's wanted to return to town for about eight to 10 years because he still has family members living in Williams. Lucero came from cutting hair in Sun City, where he still works two days a week. He said Williams is similar to Sun City in some ways.

"You get all these people that are from all over the United States and plus they're from all over the world really too," he said. "It's pretty unique."

For Lucero, developing a good rapport with clients is an important part of his job.

"You gotta know how to talk to them," he said. "You find out where they're from, and you think about it. And you sit there and you start talking about their hometown and all of a sudden you've got their attention."

However, the most important part of Lucero's job is the hair.

"Everybody does haircuts different," he said. "You just have to make it look nice, that's about it."

Lucero works at the Salon at Six One Four, 614 W. Grant Ave., Mondays through Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Appointments are available at (623) 846-2508.
