And now, sought-after Sydney hairdresser Barney Martin has thrown open the doors to his second salon, BM2, in Darlinghurst. The sister site to the original Surry Hills terrace, the new Darlinghurst digs boast the same relaxed vibe and in-salon bar (yes, you can request a Bloody Mary with your blow dry) and see Barney himself in the salon on Tuesdays and Wednesdays each week.
The former Sable Hair site, the space is intimate, edgy and big on the little details, from the polaroids on the wall to the the uber-comfy leather Takara Belmont chairs, handmade in Japan and shipped just in time for the big reveal.
The Surry Hills salon was voted one of the best in the world by US Harpers Bazaar two years ago; we have a feeling BM2 is going to swiftly follow suit.
Barney Martin 2, 295 Liverpool St, Darlinghurst, NSW.
