The Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS - BRIANNA MOR­RIS-GRANT

A GOLD Coast bar­ber­shop will hold the ti­tle of the most ex­pen­sive in Queens­land when it opens in Coomera to­mor­row.

And its owner says it’s worth ev­ery penny.

Owner Ab­bas Maqbool has spent just un­der half a mil­lion dol­lars fit­ting out his eighth store, the first in Queens­land.

The 100 sq m shop fea­tures wood pan­elling, leather chairs and cus­tom­made equip­ment.

“Ev­ery­thing from the chairs to the floor to the wood ... the re­tail area ... ev­ery­thing’s qual­ity and what we sell is qual­ity,” Mr Maqbool said.

“You can’t do qual­ity for cheap, ever.”

Mr Maqbool said the bar­ber­shop was about of­fer­ing a com­plete ser­vice for the mod­ern man.

“It’s not a claus­tro­pho­bic en­vi­ron­ment like your typ­i­cal bar­ber­shop,” he said.

“From the light­ing to the mu­sic it’s pretty dif­fer­ent.

“A lot of men I knew would go to the bar­ber only to get their beards done be­cause they couldn’t get their hair cut ac­cord­ing to face shape or to trend at a tra­di­tional bar­bers.”

ManCave Bar­ber­shop of­fi­cially opens at West­field Coomera to­mor­row.

On Sun­day, the first 100 cus­tomers will get their hair cut for free.
