New St. Matthews barbershop aims for younger crowd with specialty cuts, edgy decor

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new barbershop opening soon in Louisville takes getting a haircut to a whole new level. 

The Corner Barbershop opens at Mall St. Matthews next week. It specializes in unique specialty cuts.

The owner Andre Hayes, from Radcliff, Ky., owns eight Corner Barber Shops at malls across the country, and is glad to open one near his hometown.

Specialty cuts aren't the only thing that make his shops unique. 

You might find yourself dodging skateboards with a half-pipe inside each shop.

"The half-pipe is the wild factor, an attraction to attract the youth," Hayes said. "Louisville has the largest skate park so the community is very large out here. Nobody's going to skate the ramp, but the kids love it."

The Corner Barber Shop is expected to open June 13.
