Brothers on Ottawa Street

Three Syrian brothers who arrived in Hamilton from war-torn Syria have set up shop cutting hair in Hamilton, Ontario, Brothers Barbershop at 290 Ottawa Street North. According to Tammy Heidbuurt, posting in the Crown Point Community Facebook group, “Mohammed and his brothers used to run a barbershop back in Syria until they had to flee. Their journey brought them to Hamilton where he and his family have lived for almost 3 years now. Just recently he was reunited with his eldest brother- the one who trained him in the art of barbering! This week (December 4th) the three brothers: Mohammed, Abood and Feras opened their very own barber shop on Ottawa St.”
