The motto of Barber Black Sheep is fittingly “old craft, new ways,” and as one can gather from that statement, they’re experts in grooming the modern man from head to throat, offering haircuts, beard trims and shaping for longer beards, plus wet switchblade shaves for your throat and indeed your head. They also sell recycled designer Japanese menswear, handpicked in Japan by their discerning team.

Thankfully, there are experts in this area who excel in getting the discerning man’s ‘do’ just right. Here, some of Melbourne’s best barbers are recommended.
