Close Shave


The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation has fined Roosters salon for allowing cosmetologists to shave their customers. Texas law allows only barbers to shave. Roosters owner Joe Grondin notes that the shaves were performed not with a straight razor but with a disposable safety razor. "Any 10-year-old can walk into a drugstore and buy them. Why would they be illegal?" said Grondin. He refused to pay the fine and is suing the state.
