"I'd say every day there's a couple," St. Pierre said, pointing out that many men shave their heads themselves.
These days, Shannon Klose of Contemporary Hair in North Adams is doing multiple head shavings.
"With this heat, a lot of guys are coming in and having their heads shaved," she said. "I've been outright busy with my clippers. They're constantly recharging. A lot of guys have been coming in to have their heads buzzed."
