As Adelaide’s leading family owned and run barbering establishment Barber Boys, we opened our first store 14 years ago. From what started as a humble beginning has now grown into an award winning South Australian success story, winning 2017 and 2018 Australian Hair Industry Awards ‘Best Barber Business’ in Australia.

I believe that the high quality of barbering skills and culture derived from Barber Boys sets a benchmark within the industry. This is symbolic through the meaning of our Barber Boys crest; two lions representing strength and leadership.

With multiple stores in operation across South Australia, I believe Barber Boys is ahead of the pack. I have witnessed many changes throughout the industry and Barbering has really taken off again, not only in Australia but across the world. Barbering has become a cultural thing and men are starting to look after themselves again and take pride in the way they look. Men want the ironed shirt, tailored suits and the slick sophisticated haircut to match. The best place to get these cuts and services are at barbershops - where barbers are specifically trained in cutting, styling and grooming services catered for their male clientele.

At Barber Boys, we value our clients therefore only employ the highest calibre of qualified barbers to carry out our specialist range of services. Our young apprentices are our blood, who train weekly inhouse and have a passion for the industry. They participate in competition work and have proven to be award-winning barbers. Weekly training also includes a warm dinner, which fills the whole training facility with team members and their models. In whole Barber Boys are one big family with the culture to match.

As for where Barber Boys is headed in the future; a family business which has driven us to achieve so much with the company to date and having the loving support of my wife, children and extended family we have made his dream become a reality.

Barber Boys will be there from the first haircut right up until the last and that’s what I hope to instil in my kids; loyalty, good faith and longevity.
