Fitted with skating bowls, on-site DJs, coffee machines and other unexpected services, modern barber shops provide much more than close shaves. This Movember, grow your stache for a good cause before visiting one of these eight barber shops for an experience that is worlds away from a lacklustre mall quick cut. From old-school barbers to trendy premium saloons, these are the best barber shops in Melbourne.
Whether you’re after a contemporary or classic cut, old-fashioned shave or a shoe shine, at Men+Co, you can sit back with a stiff drink in hand and be transported to a time of class and craftsmanship. The belief at Men+Co is ‘that all men deserve to experience the pleasure of being groomed, just as their grandfathers did,’ and with three stylish locations around Melbourne, you can have the same experience.
