Chesterton native Steven Grimaldi is carrying on a 125-year-old tradition, as the new proprietor of Byron’s Barbershop at 121 S. Calumet Road in Chesterton.

Grimaldi says that he received his first haircut at Byron’s 10 years ago and was prompted by the experience to become a professional barber. “I was so inspired by how precise a haircut could be, the conversations, the hot shave, and just the talent and time to give a good haircut that I asked the barber what it would take to become a professional.”

The answer: a referral to Success Barber School in Merrillville.

After graduating, Grimaldi cut hair at several barbershops in Northwest Indiana to sharpen his craft, with the goal always to return to Chesterton and work a chair at Byron’s, possibly one day to become its owner. “I wanted to keep the tradition going,” he says, “knowing that Byron would one day retire. A Chesterton native would be the best person to keep Byron’s Barbershop going for many years to come. Byron’s Barbershop has been around for 125-plus years and needs to be treated like the precious jewel it is.”

“And now that the keys have been handed over to me, the tradition will continue,” Grimaldi said. “We have experienced barbers trained in all the new trends and old styles that will keep the smiles on everyone’s face.”

Grimaldi accepts walk-ins and both cash and credit cards.

“We look forward to servicing Northwest Indiana,” Grimaldi said.
