Jimmy Rod, known for his unique and charismatic Barbershops continues to display his innovative concepts in Brisbane with creation of the Shave Saloon.
16-year old Jimmy discovered his passion for Barbering early and as a result, decided to leave school and commence his apprenticeship the following week. Fast forward, Jimmy’s determination to restore the trade and hardworking ethics has progressed to 11 shops around Brisbane and a shop in Melbourne. His charming nature and character is portrayed in each store, offering men an oasis for exceptional grooming with the opportunity to relax. However, these accomplishes did not suffice and Jimmy realised he had the potential to truly quench Brisbane’s desire for more.
The latest edition to Jimmy Rod’s collection is the Shave Saloon, a notion Jimmy had envisaged for years which has finally come to fruition.
The essence of the Shave Saloon evolves around the perfect balance of innovation and tradition, blending the magic of Barber and Barbershop.
