Misfits and Odd Future-esque LA cool kids line the sidewalks of LA’s infamous Fairfax District. This area has transformed into the bustling streetwear fashion scene and home to one of Los Angeles’ premiere barbershop: Legends the Barbershop.
Seems like an odd space for your neighborhood barbershop, but that idea couldn’t be further from the the truth. Legends, as it’s affectionately known, fits in perfectly with the Supreme and OVO Sound in-crowd.
Goose is the shop’s fearless leader. “We service everyone. We’re the people you know and trust. And we’re diverse. We cross all color lines and gender lines. We’re popular because we strive to represent the communities that we’re in.”
Nestled between old school Los Angeles mainstays, Schwartz Bakery and Canter’s Diner, there’s no doubt this is one of the best spots in LA to hit up if you’re in need of a fresh coif, considering every chair is filled and the waiting area is standing room only.
“Cut it” blares in the speakers and a wood grain interior accompanies seven stations all in a neat row. “It’s not enough to just have a shop that cuts hair and have good barbers. You have to have the complete package. We are one of the last shops in Los Angeles with a history of 15 years or more. Legends is iconic.”
This shop is for you if:
- You like your barber to take a little longer on your cut.
- You’re looking to spot celebs and up and coming music artists.
- You’re a hip hop head –old and new school.
- You want the latest and most popular haircuts.
