Barbercraft NZ Master Section Shave Winner 2017

Aged 30, born and bred in France, I have a total of 15 years experience in the hairdressing industry. I love what I do and after completing 4 years of hairdressing studies, 4 years of salon experience, 2 years of freelance work as a barber, and 2 years working in a barbershop, I finally had the opportunity to create my own unique French inspired shop. The French Barber, now 3 years old, is a professional and warm environment that I guarantee you will leave smiling and feeling confident that you have had the highest quality grooming experience. 


Allan, Salon Manager


Born in South America, I grew up in France where I completed my hairdressing certificate. I then head off to Australia where I started my career in barbering. 

I really love what I do as it allows me to meet new people and continuously improve myself. The great part is that it also allows me to work and travel. It really is more of a passion then a job, and I look forward to sharing it with you. 


Jamie, Barber


Born in England and bred in Nelson, I have 2 years of experience in the Barbering Industry.  

I was introduced to Barbering by a Frenchman, as traditional as they come. The French foundation of my barbering knowledge has definitely shaped the barber I am today - professional and attentive. I look forward to collaborating with you in an enjoyable experience at The French Barber. 


Kevin, Barber


Born and bred in Argentina, I have been traveling around the world for two years. I am a professional Hairdresser with 6 years of experience in the industry and almost 2 years of experience in barbering. I decided to combine my passion for traveling and barbering so that I could have a lifestyle that allows me to keep developing my career while being able to explore the world and meet the locals.
