There’s no denying that barbershops have taken over from men’s hair salons when it comes to a little pampering. The personalised service of a barber visit is like no other: you sit and wait, maybe read a magazine, have a beer, your name is called then in 30 minutes you’re cut, shaved and walking out a whole new man.

Sydney is not only one of the style capitals of the world, but it’s probably the most stylish city in Australia, with a broad range of designer menswear shops, sneaker shops and a number of world-class bespoke tailors. It shouldn’t be surprising to learn then, that Sydney is also where you can find numerous barber shops to keep the modern Sydneysider looking fresh.

We’ve visited a vast majority of Sydney’s barbershops and so are able to compile a curated list of the coolest and most modern places you can visit to get chopped and cropped. This list has been tried and tested based on our personal experiences, heritage and reviews so you can be assured of a great cut. So whether you’re after a fresh fade haircut, need to trim a long hairstyle, have curly hair that is getting a little unruly or you want to bleach your mane, these are the barbers you should be going to.


More importantly, we’ve not only covered Sydney’s CBD but have a selection for each of Sydney’s main regions: from Bondi to Maroubra, to Newtown, all the way out west to Parramatta and north to Manly.

Sydney CBD

Truefitt & Hill

The crème de la crème of prestige and luxury can be found here in the world’s oldest barbershop. Founded in England in 1805, Truefitt & Hill maintain a rich history, having provided impeccable service to the aristocratic gentleman for over two centuries.

The barbering outfit has since expanded into Australia, yet still retains its English heritage and charm. As soon as you walk through the doors, you’re transported back to the old-school barbershop glamour of 19th century London, whilst enjoying the modern expertise of a business with over 210 years of experience.

Services at Truefitt & Hill range from a simple shampoo and cut or a traditional hot towel shave, but for those who want a full pamper, this barber shop also has some experience packages, including VIP access to a Glenfiddich suite.
