(Harlem Focus Docs)

Timothy Polo Greene, a barber and Harlem native, states that a good haircut helps establish part of one’s personality. As he takes care of his customers, Mr. Greene shares his journey of how he became a master barber. He also shares more than twenty­-five years of insight at that barbershop, which has become a type of social club within the Harlem community.
