Duane Montgomery will cut Sam Briglio's hair at 4 p.m. Dec. 22. It will be the final haircut of Montgomery's 49-year career.
“I had several guys wanting that last appointment,” said Montgomery. “I think my father used to cut (Briglio's) hair. He has two boys, I cut their hair. Now they're grown and married.”
