• Shelby stylist is cutting his place into county’s lore

    Since 1967 Bridwell Terhune has been keeping Shelby County stylish.

    From women asking to look like Dorothy Hamill and Farrah Fawcett to men switching from buzz cuts to pony tails and shaved heads, he has seen it all.

    “In forty-seven years there ain’t a lot I haven’t seen,” he said. “But I also never regretted a day I’ve walked through that door. You learn from everybody at the barbershop. Everybody has a story, and I get to pass ‘em on.”

    Terhune’s story starts when he was in high school.

    As winter storms continue to blanket the area in snow and ice and temperatures drop into the single – and sometimes lower – digits, many farmers in Shelby County are trying to use their time wisely.
