Before trio Daniel Blakemore, Connor Keighran and Jake de Varine-Bohan opened Tooth and Nail in Marrickville in early 2017, it'd been on the cards for a while. Blakemore and Keighran worked at Surry Hills hairdressing parlour Sterling for a collective ten years before they struck out on their own. Don't expect a cookie-cutter, hipster barbershop. In fact, don't even mention the word rockabilly.

"There's no theme to [Tooth and Nail]," Connor says. "We hate the word rockabilly. We don't even like the word barbershop. We're trained hairdressers so we do women's hair, men's hair, kids hair, long, short — everything."

Haircuts are priced based on time required so a 40-minute barber's cut is $65, while a long-style cut is $105 for 60 minutes — both include a wash and style. It also does colour work, including tints, highlights and balayage, and a full wet shave service with a cut throat razor. The latter takes 40 minutes and will involve three hot towels and is finished with moisturiser and luxurious oils.

The team are passionate about other local small businesses so, depending on your appointment time, you'll be able to enjoy a batch coffee from nearby Matinee Coffee or a craft beer from the likes of The Grifter or Philter. Oh, and many, many pats of resident pup Brando.
