We are pleased that you are here to read and learn more about the best barber shop in all of Inglewood and Greater Los Angeles. We set out on a mission to create the most luxurious, unique barber shop experience and to completely revolutionize the concept of your local barber.

This week, we are featuring a main fixture in our shop – and it isn’t the barber chair, but the man standing behind it!
Beyond the chair, with Tyron Jacobs
When visiting the ManShave Barber Lounge in Inglewood, you will most likely encounter the man running the show – Tyron Jacobs, or TJ.
TJ has been a barber in Los Angeles, CA for over 14 years. It was more than just his entrepreneurial drive that led him to become a barber. TJ also believed that he had been blessed with a gift from above to provide excellent customer service in the form of barbering. This is apparent from the moment you walk in the door at ManShave. TJ has cultivated a professional, yet comfortable experience at the ManShave Barber lounge that grows naturally from his dedication to his craft.
Specializing in all areas of barbering, TJ honed his skills while attending the Bayview Barber College in San Francisco, CA. He believes it was the one of the best choices he made after realizing how great and detailed of a barber he had become.
We sat down with TJ to learn a little bit more about his experience and what motivates him, as he leads his team at the premier barber shop in Inglewood.
Why did you decide to become a barber?
“Why? Because I love making people look good. Your image is everything. Knowing that I have made a client satisfied and feeling good makes me feel outstanding.”
How long have you been a barber?
“I have been a barber and stylist for over 14 years, also crossing over to cosmetology.”
What is your favorite hairstyle of all time?
“My favorite cut of all time is a dark Caesar — a low, even hair cut with a crispy straight line up.”
In one sentence, what would you say your top priority is for each of your customers?
“To provide a great service, and a memorable experience.”
Sitting and speaking with TJ, you get a sense that he is absolutely in his element at ManShave. Never one to shy away from cracking a smile or playfully joking with his clientele, you see his passion and professionalism come to the forefront the very moment someone is sitting in his barber chair.
You instantly get a sense that, not only does he know exactly what he is doing, but that he also knows precisely how to make his customers feel absolutely satisfied with the look that they leave the barber shop with. This goes for every customer that he works with – from his youngest, most inexperienced customers, to the seasoned veterans, that have been going to barber shops their entire lives – TJ is there serving up his dedication and passion to each and every one, and he does it all with a smile.
That’s probably one of the most valuable things that makes ManShave so popular with its clientele – it’s not just the luxurious environment, flat screen TVs, refreshments, Wi-Fi, or the plush lounge chairs that makes everyone feel so comfortable and at home. It’s the infectious love and dedication that TJ pours into the service he and his team provides.
