A RETRO fit-out with a masculine edge greets customers at the recently opened The Barber Shop by Zigzag in Hillarys.
The barber shop is run by Simon and Amanda Hayter, who started Zigzag Hair Studios in the UK 30 years ago and established a studio in Joondalup after moving to Australia in 2014.
Mr Hayter said Hillarys Boat Harbour was the ideal location for the store and believed there was a definite need for their services.
“The men’s market is by far the most rapidly growing market in the hairdressing industry,” he said.
His son Jefferson is the head barber at the studio, where he said they offered an extensive range of products and services with a touch of luxury.
“All haircuts are finished with an open-blade shave and hot towel treatment,” he said.
“You’ve got a different atmosphere in terms of being an all-male environment.”
Despite living in Jindalee, Mr Hayter still runs six hair studios in the UK, something he said was made relatively easy thanks to technology.
He also has plans to expand further in Perth.
