Hayes Barber Shop

The Hayes Barber Shop was operated by Aubrey C. Hayes from 1922 to 1969.

The shop's building originally stood in the north side of Warren-Sharon Road, just east of Vienna Center crossroads. The shop boasted a poolroom in the back and and at one time had a beauty parlor. The Hayes family had their living quarters on the second floor.

This building was sold [date unknown] and Hayes, with his son, Kenneth Hayes, Sr., opened a barber shop in a building just north of Vienna Center on the east side of Youngstown-Kingsville Road. (The building now houses [2014] the law office of John P. Lutseck.)

Aubrey C. Hayes served as a Vienna Township Trustee for 25 years and also helped to organize the Vienna Township Volunteer Fire Department.

Linda Hayes, granddaughter of Aubrey C. & Helen Hayes, recalls in 2021:

My grandfather's barber shop originally sat in the parking lot of the Dollar General on Warren-Sharon Road, just east of where the Hull House stood. My grandparents and father lived upstairs in the apartment. My grandmother had her beauty shop in the back area on the first floor. There was also a pool hall on the first level. One of the pool tables was given to the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department by my grandfather. Eventually they turned the beauty shop into an ice cream parlor. My grandparents traded the building for their home at 816 Youngstown-Kingsville Road. My grandmother recalled that Paul Shoff threw fire crackers in the ice cream parlor when he was a little boy.
