Our first Widow Maker barbershop located in Long Street has just had a new section built into it to keep up with client demand. Jody is now added to the crew there to assist with clients waiting time.
Our second WM; and also the #tiniestbarberintheworld – WM-jtie; is manned by Byron and is further into Long Street opposite Tigers Milk. Byron has recently cut 2 Springboks (not the buck) so things are pretty touch / pause / engage there and we look forward to a busy season at the Tjie store too.
Azaad back at WM was just interviewed by the Nomad Barber. This is a huge thing. He roams the world finding and sharing talent. Jonny Barber Joel, the mobile barber – and fantastic guy – popped in with him when he was in Cape Town recently and we will share his video of the shop when he does … Thank you to Jonny!
Anyone who’s been to WM will know its a cool spot. Whether you are waiting for your cut or beard trim or just popping by to say hi – its a nice spot to chill in. You can even order a glass or two of whiskey if you wish as you recline in your chair and wait for the fade …
The Culture Trip mentioned that Widow Maker “mixes the gritty appeal of Long Street with the feel of a traditional barber” and that “Inside you’ll find wooden floors, exposed brick, classic barber chairs, and a slew of professionals ready to give you a quick snip or shave.”
Love hearing other peoples experiences of the shop…
Mixes the gritty appeal of Long Street with the feel of a traditional barber. #derrelict #Mugatu
Widow Maker also got some love from all the way overseas, featuring in a UK magazine named Modern Barber.
Check out the spreads below. So much of love!
Thanks to all our clients for all the support and for having high standards for your hair!
