 Well, it's not brand new, but in case you didn't know, The Cutting Edge, featuring Dylan Hill as the well-known barber in town, has made his home here in Leon joining his mother Donna in the family business. Dylan joined the The Cutting Edge, located at 104 E. 1st Street, nearly two years ago. The Cutting Edge has several different services available, with a friendly atmosphere to keep people comfortable and happy.

 "[We're] all family, so we try to treat our customers like family and friends," Dylan Hill said.

 For the men, Dylan is the person to see. He can do simple haircuts to more elaborate cuts, such as the newer style of trimming a picture into the side or back of your head of hair. Did you know he even does straight razor shaves? Just like the barbers you see in old Westerns, Dylan can take a straight razor and get that beard trimmed up, or even remove it completely.

 For the women, Dylan's family members, Donna and wife, Jessica Hill, are the ones to talk to. They take care of nails, tanning and, of course, hairstyling. The shop has options of a tanning bed as well as a spray tan, if you so desire.

 "We keep the community looking good," Dylan said. "You don't have to go out of town for a good haircut."

 The Cutting Edge is open Tuesday 8:30 to 6:00Wednesday 8:30 to 8:00Thursday and Friday 8:30 to 6:00, and Saturday from 8:00 to 2:00.
