Barberology Unveils Revamped Barbershop

BARBEROLOGY, the award-winning Midlands-based barber group, has unveiled a revamped and extended interior to its first-born barbershop, launched in 2015. The group, which boasts two experiential barbershops in Birmingham, re-opened its freshly transformed Jewellery Quarter salon in November 2019, following both an extension and extensive renovation. 

The barbershop now boasts a vast 1,700 square foot of space, as well as an attention-grabbing décor rich with original building features sympathetic to the heritage of both the building and location. 

The original building, and the location of the barbershop – Birmingham’s fashionable and historical Jewellery Quarter – provided a rich source of design inspiration in the early stages of the renovation work. The foundations of the salon space have been stripped back to reveal the building’s bold, original features, including exposed brickwork, cool copper piping and visible ceiling beams, and it’s these traditional features – together with tan brown metro tiling on the walls, monochrome mosaic floor tiling and stainless steel backwash basins – that lend the salon the exact industrial element and the precise retro feel that Adam was keen to create.

Traditional Takara Belmont barbershop chairs, in maroon leather, exude a Peaky Blinders’ vibe and complete the barbershop’s design nod to the 1920s – an intentional and clever move, considering it’s the era famously associated with the establishment of the barbershop scene. 

As Barberology Founder and Director, Adam Gore, explains: “When I set about designing the look and feel of Barberology’s revamped Jewellery Quarter location, I wanted to create a place where clients could come and relax. In fact, more than that, I wanted every client to feel like they’d stepped inside their favourite pub, and that’s exactly what I feel we have achieved. We wanted an environment where all the senses come alive, which has been achieved through the devil in the detail within everything from the design and décor to the music, fragrance and artwork. I feel with this interior we have stamped our true vision into Barberology, which will allow us to take the business into a new era in style.”
