While its decor – faux-wood paneling and red and white tile flooring – is nothing to get excited about, this unpretentious four-seat establishment is sneakily excellent. The reason is that the staff has more than 120 years of combined experience cutting hair. Thirty-eight-year veteran Dave Grady took over the shop in 2007, but the space has been servicing the community as a barbershop since 1962. Grady's motto: "Take the time and do the job right, whether that means a traditional cut, a beard trim, or a tonic-covered scalp massage." Bring cash, though. Leetsdale doesn't accept anything else. [Cuts, from $15; shaves, $15; massages, $5; tonics, $4; 600 S. Holly St., 303-388-0454]
