The new year will bring a new barbershop to downtown Allentown. Michael Angelo’s Barbershop, offering haircuts, styling and more for men, women and children, is expected to open in February at 722 Hamilton St., according to owner Michael DiGregorio. The space, across from PPL Center, previously housed Center Ice ice cream shop.
