POULSBO — With its sweeping view of Liberty Bay, Gene Bryant's barbershop may have the best view of any barbershop in Poulsbo.

Bryant, a veteran barber who hails from Carbondale, Ill., opened Bayside Barber Shop at 19015 Front St. He’s open Tuesday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome.

Bryant has been a barber for almost 30 years. He was a diesel mechanic in the Army from 1980-84, then switched careers and attended barber college in southern Illinois. He owned a three-chair barbershop in Carbondale, home of Southern Illinois University, then moved to Poulsbo after his wife was offered a position with the City of Seattle finance department.
