"Haircutting is not just haircutting..."

Tucked in the corner of Mankato's Belle Mar Mall is the 400 square foot space where Dan Quaderer has practiced his craft for over 40 years.  Drop by and you'll find a whole lot of humor, kindness, and community--for fourteen bucks you can get a pretty darn good haircut, too.

 Exploring Dan's...

Below you'll find two audio slideshows featuring Dan's Barber Shop.  The first presents photos along with the voices of Dan and others at the shop.  The second sets photos of Dan's to the music of John McCutcheon.*

**Update:  Dan is not exactly retiring, but he did sell the shop.  The Mankato Free Press tells the story in an article published in October of 2009.
