When Millbank citizens want to look gorgeous, there’s only one place to go, and that’s the Elegance Salon in Clean Springs.  But, if Clean Springs is out of the way, Millbank has its own hair cuttery on the south side of town.  His Nibs Barber Shop has been a Millbank tradition since the 1940s.  Generations of men and boys received their flat-tops and hot towels in the old naugahyde chairs, courtesy of the Forrest family.  Only in 1986 did Thomas Forrest Sr. open his doors to the fairer sex.

“We had to get all sorts of crazy stuff then,” recalls Old Tom Forrest.  “Hot rollers and cuticle scissors and the like.  I’m not so sure that I approve, but business is business.”

“Of course, we are proud to give excellent haircuts to anyone who wants to drop by,” quickly adds Thomas Forrest, Jr.  “Our barbers and beauticians have been trained by the premier beauty schools in the Tri-City area.  No matter if you go for the put-together look, or something a little more casual, His Nibs and Her Nibs can create a whole new you!”

“Or, we can just keep the old you,” comments Old Tom Forrest.  “Sometimes that’s for the best.”

His Nibs/ Her Nibs is located on the corner of Divan Street and 7th Avenue and is open six days a week: Monday-Saturday, 8 am – 4:30 pm.  They are pleased to announce that they now offer mani-pedis on Thursdays, when their aesthetician Josie is in.
