The Barberhood

A barbershop in the CBD that follows traditional techniques.

If we asked you to imagine a sophisticated, old-school barbershop, you'd likely conjure up something like The Barberhood. You'll find this classy looking spot in Martin Place and it looks like something directly out of the early 20th century: deep walnut timber panelling, plush leather seating, retro subway tiles and the staff sharply dressed in suits, ties and aprons.

The Barberhood provides a premium service adhering to traditional techniques. So, what does that mean exactly? Well, you can expect scented hot towels, traditional tools and a straight razor clean up on the neck for every cut — but the style will be completely tailored to suit you.

If you have facial hair that needs attending to, the barbers can offer a traditional wet shave, with hot and cold towels, straight razors and products, plus beard styling, shaping and treatments, and moustache trims. Whatever you get done, the team here is dedicated to ensuring you leave feeling (and looking) damn fine.

Given its location — smack bang in suit land — this spot can get pretty busy, so booking is highly recommended.
