MaleOverhaul is a mobile barber and massage therapist service in the Upper Blue Mountains of NSW, one of Australias most popular tourist destinations. 

Nick Hood, a barber of 17 years and massage therapist of 5 years has created a thriving business called Male Overhaul, with a unique mix offering mobile barber services combined with massage therapy.

The idea evolved after working on passenger liners as the ship’s barber in 2008, where he had to learn some massage. Nick realised the two services worked very well together. After his contract at sea he went home to study to become a remedial massage therapist.

Since launching Male Overhaul in 2011 he has served Blue Mountains locals and tourists alike at their homes or holiday stays, offering a combination of haircuts plus massage therapy or either service on their own, He also offers to meet clients at his rooms housed in grand historic guesthouses and homes around the mountains.

Nick runs two weekly ‘Barbershop Outposts’ in pubs in two upper mountains villages serving the locals on Mondays and Fridays with quality haircuts and beard trims. Clients can have a beer with their haircut and a meal afterwards.

The popular  ’Blue Mountains Beard and Moustache Competition’ runs every November as part of the Love Lawson Festival and Nick is one of the judging panel.  “Be sure to entrust your beard to a bearded Barber. I am very pro-beard and always have been. Your beard is your true face.”  Nick says.
