The round-up: Brisbane’s best barbers

The boutique barber business is booming with the advent of beard culture, the return of rockabilly and the mania of Movember. Stylish gentlemen are hitting the streets with sleek styles, carefully coiffed cuts and formidable facial hair. In our post-metrosexual society, men are finding it easier to bridge the divide between rugged manliness and clean-cut class. Male grooming is now a big thing, and barbers are more relevant than ever. The new crop of style-savvy scissor-smiths is a far cry from your father’s short-back-and-side specialist, and we’ve rounded up some of the big names in Brisbane’s barber scene. more

Leave the stains to Peerless Dry Cleaners

Only a generation back, the idea of taking your clothes to get dry-cleaned or mended, and not doing yourself, would have been met with aghast. These days the idea of hand washing or mending yourself is congratulated for sheer recognition of how time-consuming and fiddly it is to do. Like many of us, we would prefer to head to the closest dry cleaners for everything from dry cleaning to ironing and mending. Peerless Dry Cleaners is Brisbane’s largest dry cleaning company with 20 locations across the city. Its largest store, conveniently located in Robertson Street, Fortitude Valley is open every day of the week and also offers services including shirt laundering, wet cleaning and cleaning of household furnishings. more
