Johnny Lovato. With a name like that I figured he had to be a character, and he didn’t disappoint. Johnny kept me entertained for the entire hour I was in his shop. He had tons of stories and is very proud of the time he cut Jerry Lewis’s hair. When there aren’t customers coming through he still has the company of his Cheeto eating bird; Jojo. Just like other barber shops, all the artifacts covering the walls tell you how long he has been around. This one was a challenge to shoot because almost the entire place is mirrors. I thought his “banana tree” hanging behind the chair was funny. He keeps them around for Jojo to eat when the Cheeto’s are all gone.
