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 here – we’re on there of course, and we’re in good company!
“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.

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.

Once again we’re pround to sponsor the NZ Beard and Moustache Champs – where you can show off or support your best facial hair. This year it’s on Friday 28th August at the King’s Arms. Check out last year’s amazing winners:
All the info on how to enter is on their Facebook page.
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!
Apparently women are a bit suspicious about what men really talk about with their barber.
Maloney’s friend, writer Alexia Santamaria, needed to check it out so she wrote a short piece about Maloney’s, men, Richie McCaw and more in the NZ Herald Online.
