A Kosher Cut on Coney Island Avenue

Monday, September 19th, 2011

Giuseppe “Pino” Davi’s barber shop on Coney Island Avenue near Avenue K has been there for 42 years, and he tells the Huffington Post that he’s seen Midwood change from Italian, Greek, and Jewish, to mostly Jewish. He’s cut a lot of hair in that time, now largely following the guidelines of Jewish law for his main customer base.

The Kosher Haircut Guide poster, which you can see in the video is displayed in Pino’s window, was developed last year to clearly educate frum barbers on what’s okay to cut. And according to one blog, the mistakes in the poster were not in violation of the law–the short cuts were created digitally.
