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.

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!
The Nomad Barber, known to his mum as Miguel Gutierrez, travels the world visiting barbers and talking hair. In 2014 Miguel visited Maloney’s as well as New City Barbers and My Father’s Barbers in Christchurch.
Check out his NZ episode below – then continue on around the world with the Nomad Barber’s other YouTube episodes – some of them are eye-openers!
Also check out this Canberra Times article, ‘Are Aussie haircuts any good?’; OK, it’s about Australia but the photo of Miguel (above) was taken in Maloney’s – must be better looking than Aussie shops! (Photo credit: Lawrence Smith).
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.
