Posted July 05, 2018 04:38:53 A beauty business that has been around for more than 25 years in the inner-west Brisbane suburb of Mount Druitt is closing its doors and closing its head office.
The Bali Barbershop has been operating in the city for more a decade, but recently had its head offices closed, and it’s no longer able to service its current clientele.
The business has a number of customers, including some who work in the community and some who come from overseas.
The Barbershops owner, David Williams, says he is hoping to reopen, but it’s difficult to say when.
“It’s the business of my life,” he said.
“I really love my business.
It’s a great place for me to do what I love, and that’s the barber.”
Mr Williams says his barbers are in the market for a new location, and is considering locations in the Inner West, but said he’s already secured a spot for himself at the Bali Beauty Shop.
“There are a lot of people that come to the shop, and they say, ‘What do you do?’
And I say, “Well, I have a little barber here.
He’s the best barber around’.” The shop has a range of products, from body wash to facial care and facial masks, as well as hand cream and hair extensions.
“People are coming here to do business, they’re coming here for the beauty, they want to buy something that they can use for themselves.” “
When I first started, there was nothing, I mean I did have to make a little money, but I’ve been in this business for 25 years,” he added.
“People are coming here to do business, they’re coming here for the beauty, they want to buy something that they can use for themselves.”
The business owner said that despite his business closing, he still enjoys working here, and hopes to continue working there.
“Every day I get to do the business that I love and the people that I work with, and then I think about what I want to do next,” he concluded.
“The barbershop is just another way of me enjoying my life.”
