He says it's been a satisfying career and he's had a few famous heads in his chair.

Wigchers said Kennedy was pretty quiet while getting his haircut and he had a hard time staying awake.

Back then, the late Massachusetts senator was tired because he was campaigning non-stop for his brother John during the 1960 presidential race.

Wigchers eventually the cut the hair of John, Ted and Bobby Kennedy, because JFK's campaign headquarters was just a couple blocks away from his barber shop. Ted Kennedy died last week.

His funeral was on Saturday.
