The beard necessities

If you don’t want to shave your beard because it’s grown on you, maybe it's time for a stylish trim? Wellington’s barber crews can tame the mane of the wildest lumbersexual, with grooming and maintenance tips any dedicated beards-man needs to keep his face furnished with lush, manly glory.

Boar and Blade

Booking is recommended on weekdays at the Boar and Blade, simply because the outstanding experience they provide is no longer a secret. Bundy and his crew focus on slick cuts and shaves, as well as meticulous beard grooming with, of course, excellent chat over a beer.

Norris Barbers

These guys have been grooming beards since 1996, so we can assure you, this ain't Norris Barbers' first rodeo! Chris Norris established Wellington's first modern barber experience on Waring Taylor Street, and since then, they've opened up a brand new spot on Willis Street. Think smart, upmarket, but relaxed.

Cuba and Courtenay Barbers

This barbershop duo prides itself on a mix of good music, art and style. Their beard trim comes at an unbeatable price, ranging from $5 to $15, but the service is second to none. Plus, they'll happily give your lady friend a haircut while you have your beard groomed. Smiles all round!

The Godfather Barbers

According to two gentlemen we spoke to who had very well-kept beards, Rod from The Godfather Barbers is the way to go. He'll give you a nice tidy up, good service, and brilliant banter.

Barkers Groom Room

Like a whisky with that trim? In collaboration with Matt Swan of Swan Barbers, Barkers Groom Room was created to ensure you feel relaxed and at home (with a cold one in hand) while getting a beard trim or wet shave. You'll be looking so slick, only a new Barkers suit could complete the look!
