Rebecca Lindell saw an opportunity to fill a niche in New York Mills and she took it. The 30-year-old North Dakota native was looking to go into business for herself while working as a hairstylist in Minneapolis when the opportunity of owning a barbershop in Mills presented itself.

Lindell took over the barbershop on Miller Street in the Straightline Graphics building and Mills Family Barber opened this week.

Mills Family Barber is a traditional walk-in barbershop for men. One chair, quick cut, and good conversation for $12. Also included with the haircut are the optional shampoo and straight edge neck trims. Lindell says men generally aren't used to getting a shampoo with their haircut but generally enjoy it when they do.

Lindell also plans to offer something a little different in complimentary over-the-ear and neck trims between haircuts - a quick little touch up when a full haircut isn't needed quite yet. Hours are Tuesday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays, 8 a.m. to noon. Although she looks for her primary clientele to be men and kids, Lindell will provide hairstyling services to women Tuesday and Thursday, 6-9:30 p.m., by appointment.

Mills Family Barber is a pretty straight-forward shop by design with a degree of woman's decorative touch. Not too decorative to the point of metrosexual but a little more style than the old-time barbershop. A flat screen television will arrive soon to complete the new look.

Although she's lived and worked as a hairstylist in Minneapolis the last eight years, Lindell should fit right in with small-town life. She grew up in Adams, N.D. where her graduating class was 11.
