Corey's Hair Cuts

Marcia Uthe has been a lot of things over the years, but hair cutter is maybe the one that has lasted the longest. She recently started renting a chair in Iowa Falls.

The pandemic has certainly changed the stereotypical dynamic of the American barbershop. Gone is the row of chairs typically filled with men from fathers with their young sons to retirees in seed corn hats. All talking with each other and their barber about sports, current issues, and cautiously about politics and religion.

Corey’s Hair Cuts in Iowa Falls is no different in how the pandemic has affected the business. But now, as restrictions are lifted, some of those changes — like new hours and no walk-ins — may be permanent. Not just because of COVID-19, but because a new cutter joined owner Corey Rude.

Marcia Uthe (right) found her own answers while giving one as she rented the second chair at Corey's Hair Cuts in Iowa Falls. She started right after restrictions were lifted, and just before shop owner Corey Rude (left) was possibly forced to close for a while amid health concerns.
