All Star Kutz, a basketball-themed barbershop with custom bleachers, wood floors and eight flat screen tvs, has moved into a space near LensCrafters and Dillard’s.

The busy barbershop, owned by Audrey Austin of Springfield, opened a few weeks ago with six barbers serving a steady stream of customers.

“Barbers are life changers,” Austin said. “You come in one way and leave another. That’s a life change to me.”

This is the third All Star Kutz Austin has opened in Illinois. Austin has a location in Springfield and another in Champaign.

Locally, Kenneth Moran will manage the Fairview Heights shop where customers can also check out a line of haircare products for men and women.

“Almost everyone who goes by takes a double look,” Moran said. “My main goal right now is creating a team, and making us feel as one. You should be able to walk in and go to anybody.”

For more information or to make an appointment call, 618-484-8034. The barber shop is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through -Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
