Creative Touch barber shop opened Monday at 648 E. Walnut St.
The shop is owned by 27-year-old Roberto "Manny" Juarbe, who has been cutting hair for eight years at Cutting Edge barbershops in the city.
At Creative Touch, Juarbe oversaw the installation of new equipment and chairs into what had most recently been another barbershop. The renovations lasted two months.
