RICHMOND, Va. -- It’s not the first time in its nearly 100-year history that the William Byrd Hotel Barber Shop has closed its doors, but for patrons and employees of the old-school, walk-in-style hair salon, they hope it won’t be the last time. The longtime barbershop on Davis Avenue, in the base of the former hotel high-rise across Broad Street from the Science Museum of Virginia, is shuttering at the close of business Saturday as the current leaseholders and owners look to line up a new operator.
