GEORGE F. LEE / GLEE@STARADVERTISER.COM "I never went out. I just worked and worked, just to make a living. If I had a nickel tip, that was something." --Mary Endo, Owner, Mary's Barber Shop
GEORGE F. LEE / GLEE@STARADVERTISER.COM A sign on the wall makes note of Endo's retirement and closing day for the shop, Saturday. When she started out, haircuts were 50 cents -- 75 cents for long hair. They now cost $13, and Endo is trying to help her customers find barbers who will offer the same price.
