The company was founded by Sheldon Tatchell on the sidewalk in Eldorado Park in 2011. He and his team have a passion for men’s grooming, their enthusiasm for their fledging business soon made it possible for them to move to a local pool club where they could better accommodate and serve their fast-growing customer base. 2014 was a watershed year for Legends Barbershop since it represented its rebirth and the year in which the concept really took off.
Sheldon Tatchell left his job at Standard Bank and focused fully on building the brand and in July 2015 Legends Barbershop opened its second shop in Florida. Currently Legends Barbershop consists of 63 stores in Southern Africa. We as Legends Barbershop are more than just any Barbershop, we stand out from the rest by caring and contributing to our communities by giving back and creating job opportunities for the youth.
Our give-back initiative is part of our ethos, and we believe in making a difference in the community with one haircut at a time. We visit the homeless and less privileged people in different areas to empower them with Legendary Haircuts. We believe a haircut can change the way you feel inside and out.
