Paul Pomponi opened Modern Barber Beauty Shoppe as an Italian immigrant in 1948. As young boys, brothers John and Robert worked in the shop until 1968 when they bought the business from their father. A few years after their purchase, the brothers put an addition onto what is now known as Pomponi's Hair Shop. At one time, the Pomponi brothers expanded the business to five locations. The business has since reduced to a single location where customers have been receiving excellent service and even better haircuts for 70 years.
