The New Wave of Barbershops, A Documentary About the Los Angeles Barbershop Subculture

“The New Wave of Barbershops” is a short documentary about the thriving community of new wave barbershops in the Los Angeles area. The barbers come from diverse backgrounds but many have similar tales of leaving careers, college, and other tracks to pursue their dream of barbering. Directed by Ryan Ovadia, the video is the latest in a series by Thrash Lab called “Subculture Club”.

Barbering isn’t just a job. It’s an art form, a culture, and a lifestyle. In this episode of Thrash Lab’s Subculture Club, we take a look at three unique barbershops around Los Angeles and discover why making dudes look their best is their number one priority. “If you look good, you feel good.”
