Kings Domain Barbershop
The award-winning barbershop in South Yarra stays open late for your after-work maintenance.
We're not sure whether Kings Domain's late trading hours are because it's so popular or vice versa. But we appreciate it either way. Where many other businesses close up shop when the sun goes down — or may just have one late-night trading — this Toorak Road joint stays open until 8pm on weekdays to give you a better chance of snagging an after-work spot and leaving your weekend free for fun times.
Kings Domain is quite the small business success story in Melbourne. Celebrity hairdresser Joey Scandizzo and his former apprentice Aaron Chan opened this store in South Yarra opened in 2013 right as the trend for vintage barbershops was on the rise. Now, the duo (who have picked up a few other business partners along the way) can boast five outposts across Melbourne — and sixth in Sydney. Here, hot towel shaves and haircuts will set you back $55 each, or you can get creative with a fade for $35. Plus, if you book via the website, you can snag 25-percent off your first service.
