Heads Up

‘Team Beard NZ’ – bringing the world champs home

0

Maloney’s friend Ygnacio Cervio (above and below) is the founder of the NZ Beard and Moustache Championship, now in its fourth year – head along to the King’s Arms on Friday October 27th for a great parade of beards and mos, all raising money for mental health charities.

Ygnacio also recently headed to the World Beard and Moustache Championship in Austin, Texas.  There, his hard campaigning paid off and lil’ ol’ New Zealand was named as host of the World Champs in 2021!

He popped by the shop for a quick trim and to share his beard growing tips with Julian and the crew – check out the story and beard growing tips here:

Impressive NZ beard to ‘face off’ at world champs.

Auckland’s finest barbers – Denizen magazine

How do you pick your barber shop?  It’s often about location (near to work or home), but you’ve got to get consistently good cuts and cheerful banter too.

Auckland is lucky to have some awesome barber shops in the CBD and our friends at Denizen have picked the creme de la creme – check out their round up of Auckland’s finest barbers – we’re on there of course, and we’re in good company!

Cheers Denizen!

 

 

 

 

Barbering’s Booming

“When Julian Maloney shampooed Thea Muldoon’s hair in Remuera as a teenager he never expected being a barber would become the “blossoming, recognised, respected” career path people talked about today.

But after 30 years in the hair industry, the owner of Auckland’s popular Maloney’s Barber Shop has seen barbering’s popularity ramp up like never before.”

Stuff.co.nz visited Maloney’s to chat about the booming barbering industry.

Check out the full story and video here.

Cheers Stuff!

BarberCraft! NZ’s first barber expo.

Earlier this year the Maloney’s crew went along to BarberCraft, NZ’s first barber expo and battles.

Barbers, trade and members of the public from all over NZ (and Australia) went along to share techniques, shoot the breeze and fight it out in the Barber Battles.  Two of our apprentice barbers, Matt Edwards and Cole Weldon, won their categories (Shave and Classic).  We were also lucky to host the talented Matt Brown and his crew from My Fathers Barbers in Christchurch, while they prepped their models with amazing hair art.
