You'll find this sleek barbershop in the heart of the Valley.
October 27, 2020
This uber-cool barbershop has called Fortitude Valley home for a few years now — first in design firm Wrightson Stewart's workshop and now in its own shopfront on Ann Street. Owner-operator Ryan Reed hails from the Sunshine Coast and has been in the biz for over a decade having honed his craft in London before returning to Brisbane to open his own store. The sleek new space, which Ryan.Co took over in late-2019, is worlds away from the retro barbershops that you're used to seeing. But it suits its trend-forward, inner city location well, with a stripped-back industrial vibe — think bare concrete walls and a largely monochrome palette save for a few indoor plants. Here, you can expect to shell out about $30 for a standard or buzz cut, and $60 for a luxe face shave, and appointments are a must.
