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.
Jared has spent the last six years in the industry & working between hairdressing salons and barbershops he is able to execute a perfectly balanced transition between barbering and contemporary hair dressing.
Every client is tailored and educated when sat in his chair, from what techniques he is using during the process to after sales product knowledge service.
Having formal hairdressing education, Jared also adds hair colouring into his skill set, pushing a new hybrid era for the modern barber.
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.
