New Barbershop In The Queen Victoria Building

Barber Industries is pleased to announce the recent grand opening of our new barbershop in the Queen Victoria Building Sydney. With the goal of bringing back a traditional barbershop vibe we have created a concept that blends hair & beard treatments into a masculine haven for the modern man. 

Right at the beating heart of Sydney, rich in history and heritage listed, the QVB is a fitting home for a Barber Industries Barbershop. Prepare to step inside a place that blends the tradition, aesthetics and nostalgia of the old-world barber shop with the modern comforts of today’s world.

QVB Sydney

First opening as the the Queen Victoria Market Building in 1898, the QVB replaced the original Sydney Markets and was a grand vision for a retail hub that was ahead of its time. It was in 1918 that the building's name changed to the current Queen Victoria Building.

The QVB was designed by NSW Government Architect of the day George McRae and elaborate Romanesque architecture was chosen for the design.

The most dominant feature is the almighty centre dome that consists of an intricate inner stained glass dome and an external copper clad dome.

During the 1930’s renovations converted much of the retail space into offices and sadly large portions of the original fit out were destroyed.

1959 marks the buildings darkest days when a proposal was put forward to demolish the building to make way for a car park, civic square and parklands. Thankfully after a swathe of public outcry the Sydney Council instead made a commitment to the restoration of the QVB. In 1976 a panel was formed for the QVB restoration and tenders were called for submission.

It was not until 1983 that a restoration program was signed. The major refurbishments pulled the building back towards the the original vision however they were an interpretive reconstruction as opposed to an accurate reconstruction. These works were completed in 1996, just in time for a triumphant 100 year celebration.

In 2009 another $48m refurbishment was completed and the QVB glistened in all of its re-found glory. The building was heritage listed in 2010 and now stands as a testament to the craftsmanship of the artisans who lovingly re-crafted the finest of details and the people of Sydney who refused to see it lost.

As a ‘Master Barber’ and an expert in his field, plenty of hard work and long hours have seen Ali build a national brand and become the successful CEO of what is now one of Australia’s fastest growing Barbershop franchises.

Ali Nemer - CEO at Barber Industries

Ali started in the barbering trade and learned his craft from the age of just fifteen years. 

“When I was much younger and before I immigrated to Australia, I learnt my trade in a very traditional style barbershop, I am forever grateful for that experience and to have developed my skills in such an environment. We always strived to make the customer feel like royalty. We are now emulating that customer experience and making sure that this is what our culture is about at Barber Industries.”

When asked about the recently opened Barber Industries Barbershop at QVB Sydney, Ali again spoke about the culture of the brand and the importance of the customer experience.

“We are trying to deliver something special, it’s about creating a feeling in our customers. When they come to the city and visit us here at QVB, we are striving to make the experience something that they will savour and look forward to every time. We have an incredible team here, we offer prestige yet approachable services in men's grooming, delivering on all the extras. We place a little more emphasis on the experience and I believe that is what separates us from the rest.”

Whilst keeping busy with an ever expanding company, Ali also juggles family life and has his time in demand as the father of three daughters. He says that he “remains very ambitious’ however also seeks balance as he aspires to continue to grow the company while remaining a humble and loving family man.
