Love the resurgence of this trend. What about some a funky retro shave kit, shave soap, beard oil or moustache wax as a groomsman gift? We have all of the above, beautifully designed, on offer!

Hi Tamarin, these are some of the famous barber shops in Melbourne, and they are excellent in their job. But recently, I have been to one of the other renowned barber shops in Melbourne – Man Oh Man. I must say they did a great job. My friend referred this barbershop, so I thought to give a try. And I am entirely impressed with their work. They had a very relaxing environment and offered complimentary beverages while grooming your personality.

Amazing blog!!! Keep up the same!!!

Stay in the loop!
