The Barbertown Story

Our story

Heads up Gents – if you’ve found yourself here then I guess you wanna know about about us – right? Well, Barbertown (yes all one word!) is a traditional gents barber shop and parlour offering a walk in service. It was established in 2009, in a sleepy town called St Johns in Worcestershire in the UK.

Confidence is the best accessory a man can wear, and a fresh haircut is the key to unlocking that confidence.

Jon was disillusioned by chop-shop’s popping up everywhere diluting his trade by offering a poor service and inadequately trained staff who took away their customers crowns!

Superior Service

Jon wanted to offer a superior service based on traditional values and high standards. He took inspiration from his dad’s barbershop where he spent many hours sweeping floors, emptying ashtrays and running errands. The place had a real buzz about it, it was a man’s sanctuary, a community where you could get a haircut, tell a story, make a few contacts and soak up the banter.

Our Ethos

Jon and Barbertown now encapsulate this ethos into all 3 of his barbershops/parlours by providing a great service with experienced barbers who understand their trade and their customers needs.

Sit back and relax.

We promote a comfortable and friendly atmosphere where you can sit back, grab a coffee or a beer, chew the fat and build your relationship with your barber.
