It was over 25 years ago when Johnny Baba, the founder of Barber Barber, first set out on his journey in the world of barbering. Determined to provide good, honest barbering at its finest, Johnny threw himself into honing his craft and mastering the art of barbering. With a respect for all the traditions of the past, he was also driven to create a new future for the industry, one that was authentic and eclectic.
Science and Nature
With over 25 years in the industry, Barber Barber know a thing or two about men's hair, their products are bespoke and have been formulated with the perfect balance of science and nature to deliver the best results for all densities and textures of men's hair.
What Type of Products Does Barber Barber Sell?
Barber Barber offers a range of hair care products for men, including shampoos, conditioners, and styling products. Their best seller, Nine to Five, is a Vegan and Cruelty-Free matte hair clay that offers flexible control, nourishment, a great scent, ease of use, and versatility. Additionally, all of their products are made with high-quality ingredients and are free from silicone and parabens. They are also Vegan-friendly and Cruelty-Free.
In 2003, Johnny opened his very first shop in his hometown of Limerick City, Ireland and quickly gained a reputation for doing things differently. People flocked from far and wide to take a seat in what was soon known as "BABA'S HOUSE." However, Johnny was not content to stop there. With the men's grooming revolution underway, he saw an opportunity in the UK market and opened the first Barber Barber in Barton Arcade, Manchester, in 2013.
The Revolution of Men’s Grooming
The grand opening of the first Barber Barbershop in 2013 marked the beginning of Johnny's mission to revolutionise the future of barbering and the male grooming experience. Over the next five years, Johnny's career and reputation exploded, leading to the expansion of Barber Barber shops in major cities across the UK.
Johnny The Maverick
Recognised as a maverick and purist in the industry, Johnny quickly became a figurehead in barbering. He worked with global brands, was featured in magazines, and achieved award-winning status. With all this recognition, Johnny had the perfect platform to carve his own path and leave his mark on the history of barbering.
Barber Made, Barber Grade
Long before the men's grooming renaissance, the options for men's grooming products were limited to either sticky gel or greasy wax. Johnny realised that even the best products had flaws, and even the worst products had some excellent points.
With this in mind, Johnny created men's hair care products that would never make men feel sticky, greasy, and caught short of style. The result was Barber Made, Barber Grade - a line of hair care products that work with men's hair, never against it.
In Johnny's words: "On one hand, you had the greasy hair wax that graced the shelves of most barbershops and destroyed every cushion and pillowcase in sight- BUT held your hair in place all day long. On the other hand, the fancy hair creams found in trendy unisex salons that smelled amazing, went in and washed out easily- BUT let you down halfway through the day."
With Barber Barber, men can have the best of both worlds - hair care products that work and hold all day with no sticky or greasy residue.
