Sunday 5th November saw acclaimed barber shop New York Barbers take home the big win for the third year in a row at Australia’s premium awards program for the male grooming industry, the Australian Modern Barber Award’s (AMBA’s) in Melbourne at the Plaza Ballroom. Alongside the most exceptional barbers and barber shop owners that this country has to offer, New York Barbers were awarded AMBA Australian Modern Barber Business of the Year 2023 at the gala event.
New York Barbers was established in 2014 by Mario Fallace, an industry veteran of over 40 years and owner of Berwick’s longstanding Fallachi Hair. Mario saw the rise in interest for men’s-specific grooming services, and thus the New York Barbers idea was born. Inspired by the old-school New York City barbershops and NYC itself, you immediately sense the vibe when you walk in. Located on Adams Lane, with their own café serving barista made coffee, the team of talented and experienced barbers specialise in quality haircuts, beard trims and shaves.
Mocha Group Owner/Publisher Linda Woodhead was thrilled to recognise their accomplishment;
“The AMBA’s have again shone a spotlight on the most exciting global talent in the grooming world and New York Barbers are a prime example. The role of barbers and the barber shop is deep rooted in our cultural history and they remain an integral part of so many Australian men’s lives. The New York Barbers team operate at a world class level and their talent completely wowed our judges.”
