The salon owned
by master Janko Ozbič is two
years older than the owner himself;
a salon for men and women
was opened in this building in
1924 by Janko's father Viktor.
The salon's equipment dates back
to 1936, when the father ordered
Amata barber's chairs – which
were at the time considered very
modern – from Parma in Italy.
The master continued to shave
and cut hair until he reached 89 years of
age, when changes to relevant legislation
forced him to put an end to his business.
He will nevertheless be more than happy to divulge stories from his extensive store
of exceptional experiences - be it from
Postojna or from Italy and France, where
he was carried off as a young man by the
winds of war. Despite everything else he
had learnt, such as photography, he took
hold of scissors and the razor and followed
in his father's footsteps.
Mr Ozbič is a walking encyclopaedia and his
salon a trip down memory lane. There's still
time to catch the bygone times.
Tip: To have a look around the salon and
maybe also meet the master barber, make
a prior arrangement at the Postojna TIC.
