The barbershop is akin to the church, a bastion of social activism, said Quincy T. Mills, author of "Cutting Along the Color Line: Black Barbers and Barber Shops in America."

"When you lose those kinds of central institutions, you lose a community's cohesion, you lose this gathering spot," said Mills, who is also an Africana studies professor at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
However, black barbershops are businesses. And that fact is often overshadowed by its social role, Mills said.
"Final Cut is a clear example of a business owner who is looking at a different market and a different model for a black-owned barbershop," he added.
Gentrification in places like, Harlem, have played a role, leaving barbers without their traditional customer base, Mills said.
"Black barbers began to think about how they should situate their shops in a changing community and what kind of marketing decisions to make to stay in business," he said.

Quincy Mills, a history professor at Vassar College, chronicled black-owned barbershops in his book, "Cutting Along the Color Line: Black Barbers and Barber Shops in America."

In the 19th century, most black-owned barbershops served white clients exclusively. Wealthy white businessmen and politicians in the South refused to get a haircut next to a black man, Mills said.
