Home to longtime residents Klepper’s Key Shop and the Salvation Army, the district of Royal Square is anchored by these, as well as other businesses that have been long time staples in the York community. The newest “kids on the block” are Didi’s and Smiling Johns, Royal Square Property Management and The Squared Collective, a marketing and technology firm.


Didi's & Smiling Johns


Husband and wife owned salon and traditional barber shop, Didi & Smiling John’s, offers services ranging from a full head of highlights to a straight razor face shave.

Smiling John strives to bring back the old barber shop feel, and return the barber shop atmosphere to what it always should have been. With straight razor shaves, and cuts from all eras, come in, grab a beer, and get a cut thats traditional, modern, or anything in between. 

Devon "DiDi" Shilling brings her 10 years of incredible experience in varying types of coloring and cutting. From mild to wild, DiDi will get the job done right the first time. Come see DiDi for corrective coloring, texture cutting, razor cuts, and much more. 

DiDi and John love what they do, and you can see it in their work. There will always be free beverages, and plenty of vintage decor surrounding you. Come experience the barber/beauty shop like it was when it was part of the weekly routine.

Part teacher. Part confidante. Your best makeup girlfriends. 

The staff at MKUP believe that every woman should be able to relish the experience of having a beautiful, professional makeup application in a comfortable, relaxing setting. Makeup is about enjoying, playing, and enhancing—not covering, hiding, and concealing. Whether you have never worn makeup before or own every product on the shelves but want someone else to put it on for you, our artists are here to listen to what you want and then do their thing to make you feel like the prettiest lady in the room.

Plus they're right up the street from the neighborhood's event and wedding venue The Bond, making them an even better choice for your big day.
