Men+Co Barber Services16th December, 2013

Men+co is a new concept in male grooming from two of Australia’s finest men’s haircutters, Christopher Dunkley and Gary McKenzie.  As All-Star educators for American Crew, their experience and education in the male domain is vast, and has inspired them to create a revolutionary level of service for Melbourne men.

Men+co will be housed inside the Kelvin Club, with offerings such as haircutting and straight blade shaving, along with insights, education and tips from the Barber on subjects men want to know about – sports, styling, eating, playing. Almost like having your own personal concierge – and with a bonus shoe shine.


Christopher and Gary have run the very successful and luxurious South Yarra salon Meddlers for the last 29 years, and during that time, they recognized that their clients are keen for lifestyle recommendations and options. While Meddlers also has a large female clientele, their expertise in the area of men’s cutting is unparalleled. A fully dedicated grooming area for men was the obvious answer.

As Ambassadors for American Crew, Christopher and Gary travel throughout Australia and internationally, and they are set to share their expertise and all the latest news, trends, and styling advice to their valued local clients via this most exciting new venture – Men+co.

To get details on exact offerings and to book your appointment, please email

Otherwise you can pop in and chat to Barber Sammy during the opening hours, which are as follows;
Wednesday: 12pm – 7pm
Thursday: 12pm – 7pm
Friday: 11am – 6pm
Saturday: 12pm – 5pm

Party time!8th November, 2013

We had a whale of a time on Thurs 31st for our Halloween shindig. Amazing company, food, beverages and tunes were enjoyed by all.

Opening up the doors to media and a wide range of industry types has helped spread awareness of the Club. And a few new members too!

Here are some snaps from the evening, taken by Committee Member, Jim Colbert.
