Vinny Cotrupe, 23, combined his passion for and knowledge of hair-cutting and cars into one cool idea.

Cotrupe recently opened The Barber Company in Whitesboro, with a unique look featuring toolbox barber stations and automotive floor mats. His love of cars was forged in auto mechanic classes that he had taken at BOCES. As for the hair cutting and grooming, he says he just enjoys helping people look and feel their best.
