Studio 115 and Legacy Barbershop a family affair when it comes to hair cuts By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Whatever Leon Williams can’t do with hair, his fiance Kay Williams can. The hair cutting couple work in seperate businesses but being just minutes away from each other helps boost both Kay’s Studio 115 and Leon’s Legacy Barbershop. Studio 115, located at 115 S. East Street, services families offering cuts, perms, relaxers, color, lash extensions, hair weaves, braids and more. Legacy Barbershop, located on East Davis St., offers the traditional razor shave, designs and “anything the customer wants,” Leon said. “As long as the customer is happy, we’re happy,” he said. Kay opened Studio 115 about a year ago at its current location, but has been cutting hair for some time in Orange and Culpeper.

Kay said it’s a nice advantage to be able to share customers with Leon, and they often send folks back and forth to each other’s businesses. Leon has been a barber in Culpeper since 1996, originally at the building that now houses La Bee da Loca and is now right beside it. He operated the Main Street Barbershop for 15 years before moving back down to East Davis Street a few years ago. “It’s just something I always wanted to do, I felt there was a need to bring something extravagant back to Davis Street because this is ➤ See Hair, Page 7
