Barber Brands International is a distribution company unlike any other in the world. With 26 exclusive international barber brands, we offer a tailored experience as unique as your barbershop or boutique. We offer personalised expert advice with no minimum order quantity throughout Australia and New Zealand. Our customers do not need to order their exclusive brands from a variety of suppliers, they can find them all in one place.
This one stop shop business concept would not work in any other country other than Australia/New Zealand, because we are a unique country, with a massive land mass and a tiny population, It’s a business model that certainly would not work in markets like the USA, Europe, Japan or the other developed Asia markets.
We have approximately 500 retailers that buy from us, of which approximately 300 are barber shops or salons with a barber chair. Our other customers are all independent retailers. We do not sell to the large Department stores and have not sold to any of the mass clothing stores.
We do not have our own retail store and we do not have our own consumer website. We dont wish to compete with the very stores that are our customers. We want to the best independent wholesaler we can be and just supports the independent retail trade.
Most Distribution companies import one or two male grooming brands and bolt them onto other brands they sell. Their focus is not the barber trade, but the salon trade, or gift stores, etc.
We do not sell female brands, we do not sell bobby pins or hair colours for women and we do not send generic supplies. What we do sell are, what we feel are the very best male grooming brands the world has to offer.
We are here to offer the very best service and brands we can to the barber market and the independent retail trade.
The owner of Barber Brands International, David Morton, has worked in the Health and Beauty Industry in the USA, UK, Canada and the USA for 20 years, at a the highest level and began the “one stop” wholesaler concept for barbers in 2003. While we are the largest importer/distributor of premium male grooming brands in Australia/New Zealand , any barber or retailer has full access to chat with David at any time. We are all about growing the barber industry and david is happy to consult with barbers or retailers at any time to help them decide on which brands, or part of brands, might suite their shop the best.
