When is a trip to the barber more than just a trip to the barber? When you can watch television and play a game of pool while you wait. Or you can simply sit around on the couch and chat, if that's what you'd prefer. Brisbane's latest hairdresser isn't just somewhere to get your haircut — it's a full blown hangout spot too.
Meet The Gentlemen's Club Barber Shop, a place you'll want to visit for more than getting your locks chopped. Those after a trim will find a line of comfy barber chairs just waiting for patrons to settle into. Guys keen for a close shave can brave the straight razor — and in the future, other services such as massages will also be made available. And ladies, don't be put off by the name; it might look and sound like a male-centric establishment, but women are more than welcome.
In short, the new addition to the Fortitude Valley stretch of Ann Street combines an old school experience with modern creature comforts. Although to be fair, it's not the first in a fresh wave of cutting (geddit?) establishments. Earlier in 2015, ladies-only outfit Barber Girl began offering a relaxed and affordable alternative to the usual salons.
Point is, when it comes to taking care of your tresses in Brisbane, one thing is for certain: if you're finding your visits to the hairdressers a little on the unexciting side, you're going to the wrong place.
Find The Gentlemen's Club Barber Shop at 11/915 Ann St, Fortitude Valley, or visit their website or Facebook page for more information.
