[05/16/20]   Good morning everyone just a quick note to let you know that the Express shop in the kmart building is open today for both men’s and women’s haircuts

Day 2 in the life of Modern Mens Barber!!

We are pumped!! Can't wait to get our first haircuts in 😜

[05/11/20]   Hi guys! I will be at the shop tomorrow 13th May from 10-3 if you would like to come and make a appointment from Thursday. There will be a sheet outside for you to put your name down. Look forward to seeing you all.

Opening at 830 on Thursday please watch video to get instructions thanks.

This is Diane one of the barbers at our Mosgiel shop. Her beautiful curly hair is natural. She’s always looking for a laugh and a joke at work. She’s terrific with the kids that come in. Proud of her for doing this video as it’s very much out of her comfort zone.

This is Sonya from our Spey st barbers. She was the first person I hired on the say so of a manager and never having met her. I’ve had some tough students teaching cut throat shaving as it’s stressful to learn. She was the toughest. She threw all her toys and the mattress out of the cot. We got through it. Now she’s an expert at it and a great part of the team.

We aren’t able to open until level 2 Thus will carry on here. I signed a lease.

Update on level 3 for us

Number 10 for me. My first step into barbering

This is the beautiful Amy, the manager of the Mosgiel branch. I was overseas when I saw a missed call. I had just gotten off a plane and into a taxi. When I arrived at the hotel the phone rang again and I said to my friend for no known reason, I think this is someone applying for a job. So while my mate checked us in Amy and I had a quick yarn. I told Amy this later I hung up the phone and just felt a sense of relief and excitement as I knew she was going to work for me.

My number 8 (number 10 for the team) (I think)
I promise I’ll get to barbering eventually. But as we have learnt we aren’t able to operate until we hit level 2 I think we have time. (Joleen will share more in this soon) Scroll past if you are over it :)

Modern Men's Barber's cover photo

Heres Nik. Nik is the manager at MMBarber express. I heard Nik was moving to invercargill through a rep and thought I’d seize the day and give her a call to see what her plans were. Good barbers are hard to find. We met up and sort of shook on a deal RBF and all. I had kind of pegged her for future ideas ( not sure she new this) and love that the express shop is bright and colourful with a bit of an edge which I think reflects her. Enjoy

This is number 7. Well technically it’s number 8 if we include Joleens one but my 7th.

Just a bit different today. I asked my managers to do a video talking a bit about when they started work at MMB and anything else they wanted to share. I hounestly thought they would tell me to go jump. Full credit they didn’t here’s the first one. Looking beautiful and coming across a lot more polished than I. I consider Joleen my 2IC. She manages the Invercargill branch and is my business partner for the MM Barber school

Number 6 pick up sticks (My isolated decent into madness has turned me into a bingo announcer)I say it’s 7 but all my dats are starting to blend together sorry

Number 5 I’m alive

Number 4

Number 3

Decided if I don’t do these when I first wake up I will probably procrastinate over it all day. So here’s the next instalment looking ‘glam’ but like I said before I didn’t want any smoke and mirrors just me and my story as is.

I promise this will get better but it was a first attempt I have no editing skills and if I tried to do 100 takes I would never get this done also defeats the purpose of what I’m trying to do. So here goes the first of uncut uncensored story. Heads up although I don’t swear in this one can’t promise I won’t in the rest. So if that doesn’t sit well I suggest you keep scrolling

[03/23/20]   Due to the recent announcements I have decided to make the decision to close all four barber shops efffective immediately.
Our plan is to open again on 20 April but we will keep you posted as new information is processed.
I would like to thank all our customers for their support over the last 10 years and look forward to catching up with you in a few weeks.
My staff and I will take this time to look after our families etc (maybe heal a few work related aches and pains) and return to work with gusto.
Stay safe, be kind, talk to each other and maybe store your funny stories to share with us when you come visit.

Modern men's Barber is closed as of now. We want to thank all our clients for your continues support and cooperation throughout this time. We will use this time to recharge our batteries and when we return we will be ready to do some serious tidying up 😂😂. Look after yourselfs and those around you.

We are keeping our spirits high while we get through this uncertain time. We look forward to seeing you all!!!

To all our customer we would like to reassure you that we have taken extra precautions to keep our space sanitised and that our staff are keeping in good health. We would appreciate if anyone that has travelled recently or have been unwell to please leave your haircut for another time. We appreciate your ongoing support and we look forward to seeing you.

[12/24/19]   Merry Christmas to all our awesome clients

His smile at the end was priceless, goes to show how a haircut can boost someone’s self confidence! He walked in with his head down and out with it held high. The best feeling in the world to make someone feel so good 🤩🤩 - Becka
