Rams Barber Shop

Holt’s neighborhood barbershop for more than 54 years

For more than 54 years, owner and operator David Carpenter has provided quality, inexpensive, no-frills haircuts to Holt residents of all ages.

While most of his customers are regulars coming in for their usual style, Carpenter does welcome new customers. Regardless of whether he’s known you your whole life or just met you, he provides the same friendly service.

“I like meeting people and talking to people,” he said. “Especially kids and young adults.”

Carpenter was born and raised in Holt. His grandfather owned a barbershop, so when it was time to pick a career path, becoming a barber was a natural choice. He attended barber school in Flint and then set up his shop back in his hometown shortly after. As the shop’s only barber, Carpenter has had the privilege of cutting hair for generations of Holt families.

Ram’s Barbershop is at 1940 North Aurelius Road in Holt, 517.694.8436.
