Lawrence Barbershop spreads KU spirit through haircuts

Rex’s Stadium Barbershop located on Massachusetts street holds a tradition of cutting KU athletes’ hair ever since Rex Porter became an owner in 2004.

Rex’s Stadium Barbershop, a spot where over the years many KU athletes have gotten a haircut, and some KU athletes still do now.

Ever since Rex Porter became the owner of Rex’s Stadium Barbershop he’s welcomed KU basketball players to sit down, get a haircut, and have a good time.

“Not only do they play the game;They share a lot of their stories with me,” Porter said. “It’s just been fun.”

When players walk into Rex’s stadium Barbershop they’re welcomed with collections of KU gear and pictures of past KU athletes.

“There’s so much history and so much just history of all of basketball, football, track,” Porter said. “It’s so much fun to have it in here.”

Now Porter just wants to continue developing friendships with KU athletes that show up at his shop.

“When you see somebody playing they’re your friends,” Porter said. “That to me is more than just watching a guy play; That’s your buddy playing.”

Porter said he wants KU basketball players to know they’re always welcome in his shop, but most importantly he wishes them a great future.
