Peggy Rhoton loves going to work every day and has been walking through the doors of Holston Style and Barber Shop for the last 29 years. She started working there when Bob and Betty Davis owned the shop and, last September, Peggy was given the opportunity to own the place she now considers her second home.


Peggy is the barber of the shop and said, "To me this is not work, I enjoy it and I enjoy meeting people." Many customers have been coming in for years, and now a second generation of clients is walking into Holston Style and Barber shop for its hair care needs.


"My customers' joys and hurts become my own. I care for the people who walk in here and become my customers," Peggy said.


The shop is a Christian-based and family-oriented facility. It is very evident in the atmosphere and the Christian faith Peggy Rhoton and hairstylist Lori Burton portray in their work.


Lori focuses on cuts, color, highlights and perms for women and first started out at Holston Style and Barber Shop in 1987. Twenty-five years later, she has returned to the shop.


"It feels good to be back in a good Christian atmosphere and it’s like walking into home," said Lori.


Holston Style and Barber Shop is a walk-in shop. They do not accept appointments, but customers are welcome to walk in any time for their hair care needs - knowing that Peggy Rhoton and Lori Burton are going to take their time and do the best job possible.


"I would like to thank Bob and Betty Davis for the opportunity to work as a barber here for 29 years, and I would also like to thank Betty Davis Mann and Shane Davis for the opportunity to carry on The Holston Style and Barber Shop," Peggy said.


The business hours are from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Tuesday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday through Friday; and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday. The shop is located at 1818 US Hwy 23 N, Weber City. For additional information, call 276-386-3451.
