Bespoke was founded by Paul Bartolo in 2014. Paul’s career started in London before he took to traveling the world with his profession and running several successful barber shops across Australasia. Bespoke Barbers is the culmination of Paul’s passion for barbering, tradition, and style.
Bespoke Barbers specialises in modern-classic haircuts and styles and offers luxurious hot towel shaves, beard trims plus provide excellent advice on hair and beard care products. Stocking some of the best products around, Bespoke Barbers also provide a range of premium quality cut throat razors and all the accompanying accessories for the man interested in traditional shaving.
Excited to share his experience and passion with the next generation of barbers, Paul has developed the Bartolo Academy. After numerous requests for career advice from wannabe barbers and recognising the diversity of the people enquiring, Paul has designed the Introductory Workshop in Barbering to give insight into the industry and the ability to experience a day-in-the-life of a barber in a busy city barbershop.
The success of this workshop in such a short time-frame led to the creation of more advanced workshops for experienced barbers and hairdressers looking to upskill, learn new techniques and, for the hairdressers, pivot their career towards the growing, lucrative, barbering industry.
Hosted in his award winning barbers shop, the Introductory, Clipper & Blade and Face Shave Workshops are attracting professionals throughout New Zealand and overseas as far as the USA!
Now, with our first Full Time Barber Course underway, our transition to barbering education is proving very popular and so far a complete success!
