Walking along the streets of Boyle Heights, you’ll pass by a barbershop or two. Most have been around for years, and many locals know their barbers well.
The Cream Shop, a recent addition to Boyle Heights, opened its doors in July 2016. It offers many haircuts – from classic designs such as pompadours to modern staples like man buns. Soon after opening, some in the community labeled it a gentrifying business, though the founder, Lino C. Campos, 41, has lived in Boyle Heights for most of his life.
