Three decades later - now with some facial hair to shave, my memory instantly flashed back to those times in Mexico when I saw QT Sydney's retro Barber Shop.
Outfitted with imported American vintage barber chairs and a solid menu of men's treatments and Cut Throat Shaves (make note of the Mr. Bond and The Don), the Barber Shop at the hotel's SpaQ is a must-do while in Sydney.
Sexy, sassy and stylish, QT Sydney boutique hotel has her party shoes on and is ready to dance. This super-central design diva is carved out of the historic State Theatre and Gowings department store buildings, blending Gothic, art deco and Italianate architecture with quirky-but-cool interiors. Door gals dressed in saucy uniforms, buzzy drinking and dining, and a hip day spa? We're smitten.Simply book a time slot in stylish SpaQ and 'fresh picked' treatments are honed around your mood on the day (we love the hammam and ice-room). Gents can go grooming crazy at the old-school barber's (complete with antique US chairs), where wet shaves and facials leave you sleek as a seal (choose between Mr Bond or the Don).
