With the belief we are only limited by ourselves, Shinko aims to push the sphere of human potential as advocates for personal growth and self discovery.

We exist to move the needle from ‘what was’ to ‘what is’ and from ‘what is’ to ‘what can be’.

An elevated and holistic approach to men’s hair.

Future focussed / Style conscious.

We are Shinko.

I’m forever chasing creative pursuits, with a career in music then making my way back to an early love of cutting hair – I carved out my own path, self taught and constantly honing my craft to work alongside and develop various significant brands within men’s hair.

I’m a strong believer in ‘look good, feel good’ and thrive on the change that can take place within the space of a simple and timeless ritual – a haircut.

After bouncing around Melbourne as bit of a hair gypsy, Shinko– meaning progression in Japanese– is my baby (along with my newborn daughter, Lux)

I’m excited for the opportunity to serve this community, and look forward to making you look and feel your best.

After 10 years of cutting hair my relationship with barbering has changed.

Having stemmed from a fascination with hair and subculture, my career now puts me on the front line of all the things I enjoy: creativity, good conversation and learning. Building on a solid foundation of all hair types, barbering has been my education on all things people.

I believe a haircut should spark confidence, so with an attention to detail and an open mind lets create something suitable, personal and you.
