Austin & Palm Springs best haircut and gay owned barbershop.
Our press features and how we impact our community.
A haircut is elemental to a person's look, so the business entrusted with creating that cut is incredibly important. For a queer person, the choice of where you go for a cut, color, or trim means not just finding skilled cosmetologists but also a space that welcomes and celebrates your identity.
Few community spaces — queer or otherwise — have reached the heights of a barbershop, a site of physical and social betterment without any vices beyond a really good lather. But one of the things that makes the barbershop such a safe space is its niche clientele — men in the neighborhood. At Daddy’s Barbershop, doors are open to “Texans of all genders.”
For 10 years, Lasater served as head of security for the Folsom Street Fair, an annual BDSM and leather street fair that concludes the city’s Leather Pride Week, while Daddy’s sponsored title holders in the Mr. SF Leather Competition, who spread love for the barbershop worldwide. Giving back is always what’s made the shop a cut above the rest.
