The Lazy Barber
Jonathan began his hairdressing apprenticeship in 2002 in Fitzroy. As a young man he worked worked all over Melbourne trying to find where he fit within the industry.
Following a few trials and tribulations he and his partner decided to open a salon in Brunswick but then had a calling to head to London to train at the Vidal Sassoon academy.
He came home inspired and decided to take on the transition into barbering. Which he has done for the past 3 years doing pop ups throughout Melbourne and Adelaide, tattoo conventions, festivals and also learning from some of the best barbers across this country and internationally.
Working in Prahran was the major stepping stone for him to begin his new venture - Valiant Barbers.
Hailing from northern coastal New South Wales, Barry Claude’s Barbering career began 3 years ago as he journeyed to the Gold Coast to seek purpose.
His story originated in the traditional styles of the industry but has over time expanded and grown into the modern world of Barbering as he has strived for perfection.
Barry’s passion for creativity in life has been his number one priority allowing Barbering to flourish inevitably.
He’s always down for a laugh, in-depth conversation and to overall make new friends.
Jed has been barbering for about 3 years, originally moving down to Melbourne about 4 years ago from Brisbane. He shortly begun his apprenticeship not long after and hasn’t looked back. Jed passion comes from community, barbering is so family orientated for him and coming to work and hanging out with your mates all day is the life he’s always wanted.
Rowdy the Barber
Rowdy is originally from NZ but calls the North Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne home.
In the six years of barbering, he has developed a unique passion for the industry, always motivated and driven to refine his craft. Having returned from working in the UK for ten months, learning from some well known names in the industry, he is looking forward to applying these newly adapted skills in his home town.
Rowdy loves achieving all styles however slick backs, textured crops and anything creative have to be his favourites.
