New Barbershop Training Facilities Opens at Box Hill Institute

Box Hill Institute has opened a cool, new barbershop. Its opening coincides with the first anniversary of its barbering courses being on offer.

A stainless steel, shed-like construction houses the barbershop, which is conveniently located in the atrium of a central building at the Elgar campus.

Head of Hairdressing, Ruth Browne said, “The barbershop has been positioned near the student café and student administration to attract students and public clientele. Barbering students need lots of models so prime positioning is a key to its success.

“The barbershop design inside is a schmick fit-out with brick walls and soaring ceilings.”

The barbershop has three rooms with the main room seating nine clients, the second fitted with a washroom, and the third with an online study room for barbering students to use in quieter moments.

Complementing the minimalist interior will be the newly launched Dutch barbershop products, 1922 by J.M. Keune, in attractive blue packaging.

Ruth said, “Clients can have their hair cleansed and conditioned with the new Kuene’s products and we’re offering a five-minute express colour service.”

Haircuts will be available to students and the community on weekdays from 10am – 6pm for a nominal price.

Everyone is invited to see demonstrations at the new Barbershop @BHI on Open Day on Sunday, 26 August from 10am to 3pm.

The Barbershop @BHI is located in the atrium, Building 4 on Elgar Road, Box Hill.
