Barbershop: Stallion Barbers
Location: Maroochydore, Sunshine Coast, QLD.
How would you describe your shop’s vibe?
Our shop is pretty much just an eclectic combination of things I really like, but we try to keep it very chilled and relaxing. My happy place is sitting in our shiatsu massage chair staring at our 600 litre saltwater reef system sipping a Scotch.
What’s your most popular cut at the moment?
Lately the trend has been wearing hair longer and textured on top paired with a blurry fade through the sides.
Who is your favourite artist to spin in the shop?
We play a lot of Lo-fi but specifically Stan Forebee.
What’s your favourite style to cut?
My favorite has to be a clean fade on the sides but leaving the top long enough to get some good volume and loosely raking some powder through to get that slightly chaotic tousled style.
What’s the best tip for someone visiting your area?
Do yourselves a favor and go to Rice Boi on the wharf in Mooloolaba
What's the best advice for your client before walking in?
A picture is worth 1000 words, please for the love of barbering don’t just ask for “short”
Why did you get into Barbering?
I had done a lot of things for work before becoming a barber, so for me it was the career path that had the most amount of things I like in a job and the least amount of things I don’t. I love that every day is pretty much just being creative, having fun and catching up with clients that end up become great friends. The community that is created in the process is priceless.
