Barbering’s Booming

0

“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.

0

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.

Check out this story and pics from AUT journalism student Amelia Petrovich.

There’s a new category for ‘Whiskerina’ (woman with fake beard or mo) so even the ladies can take part.

All proceeds go to the Child Cancer Foundation – so get along and join in the fun even if you’re beard-free.

See you there!

Maloney’s in The Cutthroat Journal

We were schoolkid-excited when we discovered Australasia has its own barber trade publication, The Cutthroat Journal.  Even more so when they decided to run a story on us in the most recent edition.
