The barber scene in Perth has taken off over the past few years, and frankly, it’s starting to make the ladies a little jealous. With the return of the old school barber chairs, shaving gel and sharp blades, the boys now get to enjoy beers, burgers and hot towels while getting their tresses tended to.
Sitting pretty at the end of the William Street strip is Weston’s Barbershop. Although it’s customer base is 90% hipster, the guys here know how to make every man’s mop look fresh to death. After you’ve tamed your mane, take someone on in a game of pool, or even man-scape that beard you’ve got going on. The barbers here know how to create works of art on your hair, with skin fades, undercuts and other spikey hair do’s, I guarantee you’ll leave Weston’s with one heck of a hairstyle.
