At the intersection of old school barbering and new school detail, you’ll find Men + Co.

Across two locations, the barbershop offers traditional services with a modern eye, run by a dedicated team of international professionals.

Men+Co general manager, Patti Davenport, had a chat to our friends from Triumph&Disaster to shed some light on the inner workings of Men+Co.
