12 Of Perth’s Best Barbershops
Need a big chop or a quick shapeup? These barbers will have you looking fresh in no time.
Brand new to the charming George Street in East Fremantle, Tailored You brings a new level of sophistication to the average haircut experience. Their minimalistic and spacious fitout feels more like an art gallery than a barbershop and puts you in an immediate state of calmness from the moment you enter. You won’t find a pool table here, just detail-driven barbers in the pursuit of the perfect chop.
96 George St, East Fremantle
Bespoke Barber on Fitzgerald St is the one-man operation of Stu, a bloke who knows his way around men’s hair (head and facial). Doesn’t mind a yarn but won’t bother you if you wanna zen out while he works his magic, the straight razor/hot towel combo and complimentary beer are a god send. Flying solo means he’s always booked out, so get ahead HERE.

Bob’s Men’s Hair Stylists
If you’re chasing some no muss, no fuss hair styling in the CBD then wander down Arcade 800 on Hay St and pop in to Bob’s.

Relaxed atmosphere, good quality cuts and even better quality chats from Trish and Chris, they’ll sort out a messy mop or tighten that faded fade in no time.

This Subi barbershop combines old school service with modern sensibilities and style. Enjoy a free bevvy as you get pampered – or an espresso from their adjoining coffee window.
