A Union City barber's invention could be a massive game-changer for others in his field.
Edwin Ramirez, the 15-year owner of 201 Stylez on Park Avenue, has rolled out "Shields on Wheels" to help keep clients and their barbers safe during a cut.
Ramirez, who was forced to close his barbershop in March, came up with the idea for a plexiglass shield while working at a carpentry shop he also owns, Pix11 reports.
The shield contains a cutout large enough for the barber to fit their hands and tools through, and is on wheels, so the barber can work around a client's head.
Ramirez is working on a concept for hair salons and has already been contacted by other barbers looking to order a set of shields.
"We have to get adapted to what’s coming up to fight this," Ramirez told the news outlet.
