Dr Follicles



Dr Follicles is definitely the coolest barber I’ve ever been to. Which I suppose isn’t much coming from someone who usually shaves his own head, but I’m sticking to it. From the casual manly kitsch décor (the cash register is just a skull with money stuck in it!) to the awesome soundtrack, and complementary ales while you wait, Dr Follicles exudes coolness. Which is essential for a hairdresser I think. The whole point is to get a cool haircut, so you should get someone cooler than you to do it right?


The place operates on a wholly informal manner. You just walk in, take a seat, grab a beer and wait for your turn to come up. There are no bookings and no price list. You just figure out when your turn is and tell the barber what you want. They seem to specialise in hipster cool haircuts, with fades and beard trims being the most popular options.

When my turn came up it was simple and easy. I requested a fade and in no time it was done. My hairdresser Adrian (check out his Instagram) took a lot of care and was very precise. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.


Pricing seemed reasonable, at $25 for a trim and $35 for more involved work. What it really comes down to is this: inner city Melbourne dudes, if you want to have a quick, easy, painless and cool haircut, swing by Dr. Follicles! It’s too easy. Dr. Follicles is in Fitzroy, Richmond and St. Kilda, and is walk in only.
