“I was recommended to go to Barbaria by a friend over 10 years ago, and have not stopped going since. I have sent many a friend to join me and all have had the same experience. I have no doubt that when I recommend friends, that they’ll love it. I think the secret is in the guy’s wonderful attitude and casual atmosphere. Cool, yet friendly and a ’boutique’ feel, not churning out hair cuts like they’re commodity. I never have to tell them what to do, they know what I’m thinking, and the trends, and cut it accordingly. Amazing… (Pricing is also a lot better than other places, I’m told!). You will not look back.” (Anthony)

“this is the first time I’ve ever done this but I have to let everyone know what a fantastic cut and colour i got at this place!!! really lovely people and so much cheaper than other surry hills salons…highly recommended!!!” (first time)

“Coolest hairdressers in Sydney – great cuts and colours, casual atmosphere, not pretentious like most inner city hairdressers.” (womble)

“Love this place!!! my boyfriend and i both had our hair done here and it was awesome…best blonde foils ever and really cheap!! great haircuts too and best thing was no heavy up-sell. Really friendly!”

“Barberia was recommended to me by a friend seven years ago, I haven’t had my hair cut at another location since. I have moved further away for both residential and employment locations several times during this period and I always make an effort to visit Barberia for my cut. My hair is cut to specification each time, flawlessly. There is always a good vibe in the salon, it’s relaxed but very professional. I am as loyal as they get and couldn’t recommend a better hairdresser for a male hair cut.” (Dom)

“I have been having my hair cut with Matt at the Barberia for the past couple of years. They are by far the best haircuts that I have had and provide good value for money considering the prices that some inner city establishments can charge for a male haircut! Always great for a chat I can highly recommend the team at Barberia.” (Oliver)

“It is always a pleasure to walk into the buzzing Barberia, relax into one of their old school barber chairs and listen to the banter between Matt & Cheryl. When I first moved to Paddington I couldn’t find a good hair dresser until I met Matt & Cheryl. Not only does Cheryl tame my curly locks to look great when I leave the Barberia, but 3 months later my hair is still looking freshly styled.” (Sally)

“Constantly I moved hair dressers looking for a quick, no fuss but stylish cut…Barberia was recommended to me 7 years ago and although I have lived overseas for the last 5 years, I always try to postpone getting my hair cut until I have a trip back to Sydney, that’s how much I like the service! I also find that I do particularly well with the ladies post cut, something I value greatly” (James)

“Ultimately I take care in my appearance. That’s why I go to Barberia. Going to Barberia isn’t just like any other ordinary haircut with the mindless chat from someone who doesn’t care.
I also enjoy hanging out with Matt and Cheryl and catching up (albeit over a haircut). And I feel “cool” leaving.
