Yuri Porto

In his own words! "Brazilian guy in Queenstown since 2019. Passionate about barbering, cars, and photography. Grew up skating the streets of my home town Curitiba, and spent most of my life there, that’s why me and my partner decided that we were going to set out to see the world. We fell in love with New Zealand and made the decision to make this our base. So be ready to hear stories about Brazil, places that we visited in Aotearoa and eventually around the world. If my dream comes true, one day I will be a kiwi too."

Emma Ainsley

In her own words! "Originally from the Uk... North Yorkshire, I have been cutting hair for the past 16 years now. Originally I trained as a hairstylist but found women’s hair wasn’t my passion & transitioned to barbering a few years ago! Anything from classic haircuts to skin fades or beard line ups I always put 100% into my work... Having lived in Queenstown for over 3 years I’ve had the pleasure of building up a great clientele within the “hair on” team & always look forward to seeing familiar faces & welcoming new customers in my chair."

Simone Scita

In his own words! "Originally from Parma, a small Italian city known for fashion, food and music, I started my hairdressing journey in my hometown in 2009 where I worked for 2 years. I then head off to explore the world, travelling and barbering in Australia & New Zealand, before settling down here in Queenstown. I have gained a lot of professional experience working in different salons and barbershops in Italy, Australia, and NZ, and bring all this experience together when working with my clients at Queenstown Barber. In my free time you’ll find me rock climbing, surfing, playing football, camping and of course cooking delicious meals. I have a great sense of humour that would make you enjoy your time spent with me while I make you look sharp! Don’t hesitate to come see me, and come get pretty, you won’t regret it!"

Been in the hairdressing game for 20+ years so I've seen a lot of trends come and go, from the ridiculous to the sublime.

Milton Rocha

In his own words! "Originally from Brazil - Santa Catarina state, I started my profession as a hobby, just by giving my friends a haircut and a treat on their beards on the weekends. In 2013, when I spent sometime in New Zealand, I saw a world of opportunities in which I wanted to start a course and specialise myself in barbering. I always like to put a smile on my client’s faces along the way with my peculiar humour. I’m also a man with a lot of abilities and interests. I show my passion giving my clients confidence and making them come back to their youthful selves. I hope to leave a strong legacy and an even stronger impression in life through my art, barbering the awesome community we got. I love this town and the people in it and wanna help them to look their best self."
