Best New Barber Studio in Town: Apes and Capes


Best New Barber Studio in Town: Apes and Capes

jenny qian

With classic leather barber chairs juxtaposed alongside a colourful ape graffiti mural, Apes and Capes is classy barber studio on Walkerville Terrace with a contemporary twist.

Co-owner of the Apes and Capes, Shoyab Ali grew up surrounded by family members who were old school barbers. Exposed to the art of male grooming at such a young age, he finally learnt and mastered the craft while he attended University. Now with his three-month-old studio, Ali enjoys giving top-quality cuts while chatting away to customers.


A quick scroll of their Instagram gives you a glimpse of the immaculate fades and trendy hair patterns Ali masters in.

There are three main priorities behind the brand of Apes and Capes: to provide high-quality men’s haircuts, a space where customers can leave everyday life problems at the door and to overall, encourage conversation.

The whole ambience of the studio reminds you of a modern home, where customers can watch some FIFA while waiting, and then later indulge in a deep conversation with the staff.

“One of the most interesting parts of being a barber is to hear a person’s unique story and how their journey has led them to my doorstep,” Ali says.


Littered with ape iconography throughout the store, the studio also sells its own array of t-shirts and hoodies.

If you’re ever near Walkerville Terrace and need to freshen up with a cut, come visit Apes at Capes. With no bookings required, walk in and experience the humble Apes and Capes comradery.
