It makes sense that a region known as much for its eclectic mix of culture as its iconic architecture plays home to one of the most unique barbershops in America. Massive, an Oakland institution owned by entrepreneurs Kevin Correa and Xavier Hill, is a retail store, a barbershop, and an art gallery all rolled into one. It’s a place that not only provides some of the freshest cuts and outfits in the city, along with a glimpse of the local art scene, but also prides itself on cultivating the community and being a common ground for Bay Area residents of all creed and color. A place that opened just last summer has already established itself as a go-to destination for locals looking for an immersive experience that goes beyond the barber chair. Head over to Bevel to check out how the shop got its start and how the guys at Massive use their craft (and not money) as a motivation for their success.
