The Line Up
The true test of a good barbershop isn’t just how sharp you look when you walk out, but how you feel. Lisa Beanes, owner of this year’s winner The Line Up, makes sure every customer has a positive experience. “I’m in the first chair,” she says. “As soon as you walk in, you get greeted. You get welcomed. ‘Have a seat. We’ll be right with you.’ That’s very important.” Beanes, who has 21 years of experience in the industry, opened up the Eastside shop in August 2011 hoping to provide a fun, supportive place where the unkempt can go to get ... kempt. Today she has a staff of seven female and three male barbers providing full-service haircuts, beard trims, shampoos and shaves. Now The Line Up can take a seat with the rest of the best. 1441 N.
