“I lose a lot at my age,” said Webster. To say it makes her sad is an understatement, she added. “Sometimes I just feel like losing my clippers.”
Despite the challenges that come with aging and losing friends and clients, Webster said she plans to continue barbering for as long as she can.
“As long as I can do it and as long as Charlie has me here,” she said, adding that she wouldn’t start a shop at her age. “I’ve had a lot of good customers. I’ve never had any trouble with anyone. I really enjoy the work.”
