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.

How to style your hair with Uppercut Deluxe Matte Pomade.

Apply to dry hair that has been washed beforehand. Applying to dry hair is essential in achieving a matte finish. Begin the application by warming a small amount of product between dry hands, ensuring uniform distribution across both palms. Disperse the pomade throughout your hair using the fingers. Use a comb to sculpt for a refined look or further tussle with fingertips for a messy finish.

For best results, style using a small amount of product, and for additional hold, layer on more Matte Pomade as needed. The formula is extremely good for thinner or finer hair, as it helps to plump the hair cuticle.
