Barber Blacksheep is a favourite new spot for all the gents out there. Think bar and barber in one. A cool place to hang out, and get your grooming done. I’ll be honest, a woman loves a well groomed man. We as woman, spend hours each week making sure we look good, there is no reason why men can’t do the same. Imagine when you both are looking snazzy, out on the town, everyone will stop and stare.
Barber Black Sheep is Jo’burg’s newest man cave with a focus on boutique men’s grooming and products. They offer their gents hot towel shaves with an aromatherapy, note, they use a cut throat blade. As well as hair cuts and trims (for both the head and beard). They also specialize in colour treatment for anyone looking to mix things up. They use Gun Wax, “which is a beard balm that is a super hybrid of beard oil and beard wax. It has all the essential oils of beard oil that condition and revive your beard into a handsome and healthy part of your face but also provides the styling hold of beard wax”.
Whilst getting shaved you are also able to sip on a coffee, whiskey or cocktail. They serve a lovely Sheepdog, which is mixed with Gin, sugar syrup, lemon juice and grapefruit (mixed with Ginologist gin) or go for a Monkey Whiskey or beer.
The shop is filled with leather, metal and a badass energy. Chequered tiles on the floor, pressed ceilings and regal chandeliers. The setting is a bad boys man cave with royal undertones. The space is perfect for drinks with with the guys or a bachelor’s party. After all who doesn’t love booze and beards.
