Barberoy rekindles ’20s chic and cut throat cool
WHEN stepping into the Barberoy, in Coolangatta, one can't help feeling time-warped into another era.
Inspired by Tom Waits, it is outfitted with a 1950s barber chair, original art deco power points and has lots of 1920s character.
Local surfers may be intrigued to know that the sales counter was handmade from windows and doors sourced from a house belonging to one of Coolangatta's favourite sons, Mick Fanning.
From the age of 15, Clement De Vertevil, owner of Barberoy, knew he wanted to pursue a creative career.
Now at the age of 25, he is the proud owner of the recently opened 1920s-style barbershop on Mclean St.
The salon offers traditional cuts and styles from rockabilly to pompadour, and also the classic short back and sides.
"Anyone that gets in that chair becomes a regular," Mr De Vertevil said.
"They are so happy that someone can actually listen to them, and also give them a really awesome, sharp, suave haircut."
Having done over 1000 traditional 'cut throat' shaves, you will be in safe hands with Mr De Vertevil and his traditional hot towel and shave. And afterwards, enjoy a complimentary whisky or beer.
