About us.

The Melbourne Barber Shop proudly serves a great combination of modern and traditional barbery.

On the 4th of July 1994, a 27 year old Melbourne barber decided to open up his own auto-themed barber shop, inspired by the love of his Melbourne town and all things motoring, the business began. We have built a loyal following amongst Melbourne's most discerning clientele. The shop's classic and automotive theme creates an atmosphere that reflects the passions of the proprietor. It's located in one of Melbourne's most beautiful heritage areas dating back to the 1850s. In 2019 we were presented with a 25 year commendation for service to our wonderful city by our Lord Mayor Sally Capp. The Lord Mayor’s Commendations acknowledge and celebrate the long-term commitment of independent small business proprietors.

Face and hair products

What we love to use.

  • Uppercut Deluxe Pomade

    With strong hold and just the right amount of shine that doesn’t dry out, this Pomade has it all. The best bit – it washes out with no fuss.

    Perfect for timeless, classic looks – such as high pompadours, side parts or slick-back sides.

  • The Proraso range

    Proraso Eucalyptus Shaving Cream will leave you a shave as fresh as you've just walked out of a barber in Firenze Italy. Proraso Shaving Proraso shaving cream will last longer than most shaving creams and helps clean and moisturize the skin.

  • The De Lorenzo Titanium

    A fierce grip gel for hair styles that defy gravity. Containing 100% organic basil leaf, fig extracts, rock crystal stones and 100% pure organically certified cinnamon bark essential oil, De Lorenzo Earth Titanium creates hair styles with intense, atomic strength.

  • The De Lorenzo Mudslide

    Elements Mudslide Sculpting Creme is a strong-hold styling paste that provides texture and definition to hair while giving low-level shine. Ideal for shorter hairstyles. Contains Certified Organic Fig to soothe and hydrate hair and scalp, and basil extract to stimulate follicles of the hair.
