Queenstown, New Zealand – World Barber Shop Adventures

Queenstown Barber Shop

Queenstown, New Zealand is a small town that is packed with endless natural beauty. Surrounded by mountains, lakes, and plenty of greenery, the city is an adventure seeker’s dream. Not only is there plenty to do when it comes to taking in nature, but the cafes, bars, and restaurants also do not disappoint. There is a wide variety of boutique shops that make travelers want to blow their budgets on high-end goods. In this area of fantastic shopping, you will find one of the top barber shops in New Zealand, Gents Barber Shop.

Gents Barber Shop has an exclusive vibe with a welcoming touch. The management and barbers make their clients feel unique with the open layout, coat check, and drink offerings before the treatment begins. Once you are in the chair for your haircut, shave, beard trim, or facial treatment, you will experience their professionalism and unmatched craftsmanship as they work the blade and clippers. My barber, Gary, had style, fashion, and an authentic kindness that made the experience unique. Dressed like an episode of Peaky Blinders, he operated his tools flawlessly as we discussed a wide range of topics.

If you ever have the chance to visit this beautiful town on the South Island of New Zealand, make extra time to spend time in the chair at Gents Barber Shop. You will walk away with a wonderful experience, a great haircut, and stories to tell back home.
