Having a razor held to your throat was just part of a casual Saturday night on the Lonsdale street of yesteryear, but with the strip’s rejuvenation into an ambitious cultural and commercial destination in the intervening years it’s now something that men will voluntarily pay for. Braddon’s boom during the last several moons has been due to a surge in independent retailers offering locals bespoke experiences, much like Groomed, one of the latest businesses to add its stylish presence to Lonsdale street. Situated in the ORI hub, Groomed is a boutique men’s barber shop with the kind of attention to detail you’d hope your barber would possess. The stylised interior is decked in endless timber panels right down to the barrel sinks, while the customer’s chair looks part old west saloon, part Pulp Fiction. Groomed caters to its clientele with shoe shines, fades and an emphasis on a gentleman’s facial hair with beard and moustache treatments that’ll impress even the most discerning hipster.
