A unique barber experience and a great cut! We traveled 6 hours and walked right in and got seated. Our dogs were able to hang out in the shop and they offered us a drink while we waited.

I’m from out of town, but found myself in LX in dire need of a haircut. Looked for places on Google with no horror story reviews and came across the Illustrated Barber. They lived up to their 5-star reviews. Matt was great and gave me a fantastic haircut, talking through it to make sure that I was getting what I wanted. Great experience all around and I would not hesitate to go back when I’m in LX again.

Best barber in town. Pool and beer too.

I drive from Richmond because they are simply the best shop I have found. Chris always does an awesome job, and one of the few places I allow to shape up my beard.

Not your typical barber shop, very unorthodox, but amazing! Loved all the barbers' personalities. Very easy going and chill place. They cut my boyfriend's hair and did an amazing job!

Kirk Hardy


You want a haircut look no further. If you have a beard you'd be dumb to choose anywhere but here.


John Winters

Jordon Castle

I've been to almost every barber shop in lex and none have been as great as this place. It has a super chill atmosphere with some amazing barbers. Ask for Benny. He gave me a cut & beard trim and it was by far the best I've had.

First time visiting this shop. Beard shape up and haircut were the best I've had in forever. Atmosphere and the people working there are super cool. I will definitely be a regular.

Needed a haircut fast and by shear luck I found The Illustrated Barber. Darin handled my cut as a walk-in (I note I hadn’t had a haircut in months so I was pretty disheveled looking) and he did exactly what I had hoped for. I’ll definitely be going back to this place and will unquestionably ask for Darin again.

My favorite barber shop so far, Austin, Ben and Chris all know their stuff. They give a cut the way it should be done. They also help you get your look together, I really didn't know what I wanted but they steered me in the right direction. Great guys.

Loved this place. Great atmosphere. Probably the best haircut and beard trim I've ever had. Being offered a beer was an amazing touch as well. Everyone there seemed very knowledgeable and patient. They took their time and there was no rush. Will definitely come here again.

C.J. Boley

Top notch. Classic.

Phillip Wilmoth

Best Beard trim and hair cut ever....

Amber DeHart

Anthony LaPointe

Hands down best beard trim and hair cut I’ve ever had! $25 for about a solid 45minutes cut! Austin is the man! I’m not from here but will def be back! The atmosphere is great and Austin will keep you laughing with some stupid funny stories! Really appreciate the cut and trim man! Highly recommended!

Jonathan Sears

Brandon from Kentucky

Great Haircut by Darin for $25 they do it right and take there time with attention to detail. I actually like this place better than I did roosters which is similar. Darin even offered me a beer while getting my hair cut which I thought was awesome. Great work I'll be back for sure. 3rd hair cut wasn't that great basically got a trim for $31 total. Doesn't have me dying to go back.

Kevin Burke

This place is awesome. Great atmosphere and Darin gave me the most compliment-inducing haircut I’ve ever had.
