Parramatta’s first dedicated barbershop has just launched with the Esstudio group debuting Esstudio Garage in Sydney’s West. The new premises has been pioneered by Esstudio Group founder Aleks Abadia and emerging men’s hair talent Johnson Viane, with a vision to bring cutting edge barbering to the electric Paramatta community.

“The moment I met Johnson I knew we were on the same page. Since we opened Esstudio Colour Bar last year the locals have been asking for more male focused services,” Aleks said.

“I’m so excited to partner with Aleks,” Johnson agreed. “The set-up of the barber shop is exactly what I had envisioned. I’ve been working in the area for the past four years and I’m happy to now be able to offer a shave experience with a difference.”

The salon will boast a range of services, including men’s style cuts with options for university students, high school students and more in their diverse clientele, as well as hair design and art such as skin fades and camo colour. The salon will offer cleansing with luxury scalp massages, as well as beard services and corporate packages, including men’s facials and deluxe razor shaves. Artistry and luxury will be front and centre with the service menu, while the affordable treatments and services will start from $15.

“Since the age of 12 I’ve always loved picking up the clippers and cutting hair, whether it was for my friends during a school lunch break, in the locker rooms before a rugby game, or even in my garage,” Johnson said. “Cutting hair became a passion of mine and something I could never give up. I learnt from the best local barbershop in North shore of Auckland, New Zealand and spent countless hours learning the amazing craft of barbering.”
