Bandit Hair Company is a new shop in town that is working to break the traditional view of haircuts. For years, it has generally been thought that barber shops are for men and salons/beauty parlors are for women. Bandit Hair, a “Hair Collective” in the heart of New Orleans’ Marigny, offers an inclusive space for the LGBTQ community. Hannah and Felix work there and promote a gender neutral location where everyone feels welcome.
Hannah is a Seattle transplant who has called New Orleans home since 2012. Her local career kicked off at Factotum in the Bywater. In September, she branched out and opened Bandit Hair Company, named after the company’s mascot.
Felix is originally from Bunkie, Louisiana, and has resided in New Orleans for the past 18 years. They are excited to be a part of this team where they are completely free and comfortable to be themselves.
Bandit Hair Company will be adding a stylist in January.
Bandit Hair Company is located at 517 Port Street, New Orleans, and is open Tuesday – Saturday from 11am-6pm. Appointments are recommended, but walk-ins are available. To book an appointment or more information on their services, visit: bandithaircompany.com
