25 Years as The Gloucester Barber

Whitson Barber Shop

Mens hairdressing has changed over the years – no longer the realm of the veteran barber who knows only one cut, nor that of the airy hairdresser who is terrified of clippers.

Our expert team has a wealth of knowledge – from the traditional barbering techniques of clippers and razors for the best short back and sides, to advanced cutting techniques usually confined to the realm of top class hairdressing.

We are passionate about providing the best level of service in an informal and relaxed environment where you can catch up with the news, watch some sport, check your email/Facebook, or just soak up the atmosphere.

Every day we offer free Newspapers, Magazines, Wi-Fi access, MTV & Sky Sports.

Sit back with a tea or coffee whilst you catch up with the game.

Our Products

At Whitson Barber Shop we understand that not all of us have the same taste in music or clothes, so why should we all like the same hair styles?

So whatever your style, our team of expert barbers will take the time to find out who you are and what you want, to ensure you leave Whitson Barber Shop with the hairstyle that truly reflects your personality and taste.

Fresh and Chill

Team Whitson always keeps the customer looking fresh.  And to keep them feeling fresh and cool our barbershop is now fully air-conditioned.


On the next hot day come over to our barbershop, chill out with the day’s newspapers and watch the sport whilst you get a great looking cut from Whitson Barbershop.


And if you're reading this in the winter months... we have heating!

The latest styling export from Australia.


Muk is an underground brand that has built its reputation on hard core performance.  It is the hairdressing industry’s next iconic brand.

The Aussie crew behind Uppercut Deluxe are such big fans of the traditional barber experience they decided to create their own at home. So that’s clays, waxes and moisturisers that keep your face and follicles in check.
