Electric Brain is the ultimate place for a barber-style experience. Owner Summer Bousaab offers an alternative to the standard standard walk in, sit down and get your hair cut. Instead, Electric Brain delivers a great cosy hang out, with old music, cool art and a get-away from the daily grind.

At Electric Brain, you can either roll on in or book ahead and take a contented seat in the electric chair, then shoot the breeze with the friendly staff. During the cut, you can gaze at the collectibles, which include Rat Fink figurines, religious statuettes, framed Garbage Pail Kids cards and 50s B-grade movie posters, while one of the miscellaneous music mixes provides an obscure, yet engaging soundtrack.

Open late-ish on weeknights and catering to either gender, Electric Brain is a place where the usually inane generic hairdresser ‘conversation’ is thrown out the window in favour of something a little more real. People are friendly, interested and engaging, but there's a wonderful lack of bull here that is so refreshing.

Whether it is men looking for classic crew cuts, side trims and neck shaves, or ladies chasing a little short hair maintenance, Bousaab’s nimble old-school techniques cater to all.
