Old-school barber is on trend in the Whitsundays
IT SEEMS men are eagerly heading back to the traditional barber shops, according to a new barber shop owner located in Centro.
Owner of True Blue Barbers Mary-anne Tuckett said business was booming as men were now looking for a high quality service combining modern hair design with classic barber techniques.
“Seventy to 80 per cent of men and families come through the door because it is convenient and cheaper,” she said.
True Blue Barbers provides a different experience in hair care by offering all traditional barber shop services including haircuts for men, women and children and face grooming with no appointments necessary.
With a passion that started while watching her father operate his own barber shop, Mrs Tuckett is determined to expand services as quickly as possible.
“I am personally training all staff to do full face shaves with a hot towel, pre-shave and cut-throat blade on the neck,” she said.
“The barber’s chair reclines back for maximum comfort while I complete the final shave and then a cold towel is applied followed by a nice aftershave.”
With more than 20 years of experience in hairdressing, Mrs Tuckett is supported by two professional staff Jacqui Brackley and Mikahla Solway.
Ms Brackley is a Whitsunday local boasting an impressive hairdressing career with over two de- cades of experience while Ms Solway recently moved here from Brisbane after completing her hairdressing qualifications.
Conveniently located in Centro Whitsunday, True Blue Barbers offers a full men’s service including haircuts, clipper cuts and beard, mow and goatee trims. They also provide the latest hair cuts for women, seniors and children in a family friendly environment.
