#OTGYpsi: Building Communities Around Ypsilanti's Barbershops And Salons

Getting a haircut in Ypsilanti is more than just regular self-maintenance.  Many barbershops and salons serve as pieces of Ypsilanti's history, as well as places that serve the common good.  Among these establishments is Finesse 1 Salon, owned by Shawn and Hala Green.  They talk about their experiences with WEMU's Lisa Barry and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg in this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi."
