In today’s fast-paced world, first impressions are everything and this includes how you present yourself or how you look. Nothing helps say “this guy is dapper” or “he exudes class” like a really clean and contemporary hairstyle. Luckily, and thanks to our team of master barbers, an incredible haircut is never too far away.

Not all barbers are made equal and there are definitely some things that separate the elite from their lesser counterparts. Today we lay down the facts to help you understand what makes our team of master barbers the best and why you should entrust them to provide a style to make you stand out from the crowd in today’s busy world.

Barbers are not found in salons - Many people often mistake barbers to be the same as hairdressers or hairstylists. Even the term “barbershop” is sometimes thought to be the same as “hair salon”. However, the two are quite different and serve separate purposes.

Hair salons have staff and facilities aiming to service a wide demographic. They are great for hair trimming or to serve your girlfriend’s hair spa needs. Our barbers, on the other hand, are specially trained to deliver not only custom haircuts but a complete grooming service for men. Our service extends into traditional wet shaving as well as beard trimming and sculpting. These are services that must be delivered from skilled barbers and that is one thing absent in a hair salon.

We serve both men and women, but woman’s cuts are reserved to shorter styles, the type of cuts that are typically in the barber’s usual routine. The tip here is to steer away from generic hair salons, if you wan’t a legitimate men’s haircut, come to a legitimate barbershop, we have a team of the best barbers in Newcastle.

Barbers asks questions and accept feedback - Our barbers are very receptive to questions and even feedback. We are service orientated and through these conversations we can establish your specific styling goals and also have an opportunity to share our advise. Let’s say you’re looking for a cut that will accentuate your good side. A great barber will make it work and ask for your input along the way.

A team that thrives together - Great barbers know how to work with other people in the barbershop. No, we don’t mean two barbers working on each client together. We mean that they are respectful of each other’s space and they know how to create that special vibe that you will experience when you visit us here at Barber Industries. They know when to chip in, when to have a laugh and how to be a listening ear.

The barbershop can be a damn busy environment and having a team that thrive of each other is a pillar in providing a service that is a cut above the rest. Come and experience the difference for yourself. We’re open seven days.

We stock a wide range of mens grooming and styling products and with such a comprehensive selection it can be hard to to know which products are specific for which areas. We encourage you to talk to the staff if you have any questions but we also thought we could help simplify things and take some of the guess work out of it by outlining the products that our stylists prefer to use in the barbershop.

An unmaintained beard will grow wild, disorderly and can become stringy, fuzzy and pretty much just look shithouse. Just like caring for the rest of our body, our face and beard must be well cared for and groomed regularly if it is to remain healthy.
