East Coast Men’s Barbers in Warkworth is most definitely a sanctuary, a chance to drop in, unannounced and have your untamed manly mane dealt with by expert craftsman, Nick Smith. The notion created by Leigh Sheehan of ECM Signs and Nick together, priding themselves on care and attention to their customers for men’s cuts and beard trims. Everything has been thought of, right down to the atmosphere within the space that they have created; filled with vintage memorabilia, American-traditional inspired tattoo art and movie posters. Bookings not required, open Monday to Saturday.
66 Matakana Road, Wakworth
