Start the conversation

Thinking of updating your look? A trip to your local barber can help you achieve a sleek, on-trend haircut that flatters your features and is easy to maintain.

Barbering is an art in itself — one that isn’t necessarily easy to master though. To help you find the right barber in the Queanbeyan region, we conducted thorough research and chatted with the locals.

In this article, you’ll find three top-notch barbers in Queanbeyan that are truly setting the standard — both in terms of quality of service and dedication to customer experience.

So, without further ado, let’s get started.

What makes an excellent barber?

Even if you’ve been to the barbershop more than a hundred times, it can be difficult to decipher what, specifically, separates the excellent from the so-so. We suggest keeping an eye out for the following traits:

  • Trained and experienced barbers. Barbering is not something that can be mastered overnight. It’s an art form that requires years of training and on-the-job experience.
  • Up-to-date with the latest trends. It’s not all about a short-back-and-sides’ do. If you’re looking to experiment with your appearance, seek out a barber that keeps up with the latest in hairstyling trends.
  • Quality products. If you’re hoping to pick up styling gel, mousse, or shampoo on your visit to the barber, be sure you select a barbershop that uses high-quality products. That way, you can enjoy healthy, shiny, well-behaved hair long after you’ve left.
  • Friendly staff. A trip to the barber is an opportunity to kick back and relax. The best haircutters are friendly and sociable, so you can enjoy yourself from the moment you set foot inside the shop.
  • Competitive rates. No one likes overpaying for a service, and it’s no secret that haircuts can be pricey. Look for a barber that charges a fair rate for the quality of his service.
