"Without return customers, our barber shop that opened in 1966 would have closed in 1967. That’s a legacy of great service."
- Christos Leontios
About ABC Barber
Men demand to be groomed at a much higher standard than ever before and they are willing to pay a premium for the service.
But it has become painfully obvious that there is a lack of training in men’s hair cutting in the hair industry... And it’s just getting worse. Fashionable new shops have popped up charging premium prices for men’s haircuts, but the lack of fundamental training has not been addressed.
Everyone loses. Customers pay too much for an average service, so shops will fail to retain repeat customers, and businesses will close.
That’s why we’re here. With great pride in our heritage, we now share the wealth of our expertise with you and your staff through on-site training. We teach the fundamentals of traditional barbering services and techniques to any hair business, be it a salon or a barber shop.
Because we know that fashion comes and goes. It’s quality that survives.
“Only operators that can offer unique and high quality services can charge premium prices. The more successful operators provide a high level of client service and, as a result, have high customer retention rates. To remain profitable, hair and beauty salons need to encourage customer loyalty.”

So what sets me apart? Hair is my life.
With a master barber as a father, and a seasoned hairdresser as a mother, we have accumulated ninety years’ experience in the hair industry.
Personally, I have thirteen years’ barbering experience (and counting!) I have worked in the barber shop since 2001, and I have been the owner-operator of the shop for most of that time.
Based in bustling Newtown since 1966, clients include local residents, business owners and professionals, Royal Prince Alfred medical staff, University of Sydney staff and students, professional sportsmen, performers and members of the arts community.
What does that mean in business terms? Every single Saturday at my shop I have managed four staff, three chairs, 110-140 clients in nine hours. That’s the power of loyal customers.
So I am in a unique position to distil my experience and share my passion and knowledge with hairdressing talent of all levels and business owners in need.
