Heads Up

This is how we do it


If you’re heading to Maloney’s for the first time, here are a few hints to make your visit even more awesome …..

  • You don’t need an appointment for  a haircut or beard trim – head along when it suits you.
  • A good barber is a busy barber so there may be a bit of a wait.  Put your name on the board then hang with a magazine or go have a coffee/bite/beer and come back – our team will tell you how long the wait is likely to be. This is an art not a science so we appreciate your patience!  Saturdays are busiest.
  • Not sure what you want? Feel free to bring a picture on your phone, and your barber can give you good advice too on what’ll look sharp and suit you.
  • Cole, our trainee barber, is great at clipper cuts and may grab the odd client out of the queue for this – don’t be offended, this helps speed up the line for you!
  • You can request a certain barber by putting their initial after your name.  Just remember this might increase your wait time.  Be bold, all our barbers meet the highest standards.
  • Not sure what product to use?  Ask your barber to try something out and recommend what suits.
  • Fancy a hot towel shave?  These are by appointment (call or email us) but try your luck if you feel spontaneous –  if Cut Throat Sue is in the house she’ll look after you.

What do men really talk about at the barber?


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.

We’re all going on a summer holiday …..


Couple of short weeks coming up so we will be CLOSED:

Monday 26th January (Auckland Anniversary Day i.e. Laneway Day)

Friday 6th February (Waitangi Day)

Saturday 7th February (Recovering from Waitangi Day Day).

Remember our Facebook page keeps you updated on what’s happening  and who’s working, so check in there if in doubt.

Happy summer daze y’all.

Attack of the robots!


You have been warned – Maloney’s friend Martin Horspool is planning a robot invasion in downtown Auckland.

Martin takes discarded household and garage objects, and with a bit of  clever tweaking creates quirky robot sculptures, each with their own personality.  If you haven’t already spotted his work, he’s  kindly lent  us some of his ‘bots to hang out in the shop.

He’s taking his work to New York later this year but before then, you can check out his latest creations at Allpress Gallery (Drake Street, Freeman’s Bay) 20-31 Jan.  Be in quick to score yourself a late Xmas present, they usually sell out.
