ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Getting a buzz or a quick trim usually happens within four walls,

But for these bussing barbers, it’s on four wheels.

Owners Sondra Martinez and Aspin Santos taking their dreams mobile.

“We completely gutted it, it still had the wheelchair lift and everything in it and we took everything out,” said Santos.

In its place two chairs, a sink, and all the equipment needed, making things more convenient for their customers.

“Meet your customers where they need to be,” said Customer Joseph Solvan.  

The business moves from parking lot to parking lot, switching up their location every day.

“I live in Potosi so if they’re in this area it’s a lot quicker for me to go here then drive up North by say the Walmart up on the Northside,” said customer Michael Frizzi.

Customers say the business is part of a bigger movement because these days everyone wants things faster and easier

“I mean you look at drones and amazon prime, how much quicker can we get you your packages, how much more simpler is it for the customer,” said Solvan. 

As of now the mobile barbershop only does men’s and boy’s haircuts.
