Terry and his team are open at 7.30 weekdays – it’s been a lifesaver for me as I work long hours and the weekends. I can’t count the times they’ve smartened me up for an important business meeting. The place is always spotless and there’s always a good conversation to be had. Not to mention a great haircut, my wife won’t let me go anywhere else.


I can park right outside at Whiskerz in their private carpark without the worry I’m going to be towed away. I’m a tradie and the fact I can usually swoop in and grab a haircut between jobs without an appointment is great. Good banter. Great haircut. Thanks Ryan.


I’ve been coming to Ryan for about 3 years. My girlfriend loves his haircuts so I will keep coming! Thanks Ryan for all the laughs (and the good haircuts)


I’ve been going to Terry for two decades or more, not only for the good old fashion service and conversation but a decently priced haircut. They always seem to be laughing and there’s always something interesting to look at or read in the waiting area. The owner Terry has some very interesting hobbies and loves NZ history. After the lockdown they were hugely accommodating with my fellow pensioners doing after hours haircuts so we didn’t have to mingle with others when we were all feeling a bit nervous. They are amazing. Really.


We’ve been coming to Whiskerz forever. I used to go for my haircut there with my Dad when I was in College and now I take my little one. The barbers are so friendly and accommodating and hugely patient with a fidgeting toddler. They always ask permission before offering a lollipop reward when he’s done! Needless to say it’s no problem getting him there. Great haircut too.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know the equipment is clean?

We are constantly cleaning our premises and never more frequently since the pandemic. We regularly spray all surfaces with a viral and bacterial cleaner. We use barbicide to clean our equipment – medical grade disinfectant.

Can I come and see you when another barber from a different salon has mucked up my haircut?

Absolutely ! In fact, we do this at least 2 or 3 times a week, and depending on how much of a fix up you need, it might even be free of charge.
