Vancouver Island Barber Co. has long been a dream for owner, Josh Neufeld. He has worked in the haircutting industry for over 5 years. During this time, he built upon his styling skills and natural client rapport to begin delivering a vision in fall of 2021 of a barbershop that excels at providing customers with the feeling of being part of an exciting, collaborative haircut experience.

Focusing on men’s hairstyle and grooming needs, Josh firmly believes that a haircut provides more for clients than a simple cut and style. When first visiting Vancouver Island Barber Co., you’ll immediately notice the welcoming atmosphere. This is no accident. Josh makes it a priority to provide an environment in which men of all ages, members of marginalized communities and those with physical and social challenges can safely experience a boost of self-esteem and confidence through expertly-crafted haircuts and an atmosphere of respect and camaraderie. What distinguishes Vancouver Island Barber Co. as the barber shop for you is that Josh and team will provide a you with stylish and satisfying look as highly a valued member of the Vancouver Island Barber Co. community. 

Some of the things that sets this barbershop apart are:

  • a dedicated hair station with enhanced accessibility for those with mobility concerns

  • discounted cuts to members of Vancouver Island’s first responders and Indigenous community members

  • it’s a LGBTQ2+ positive business

  • minimizes the barbershop’s footprint on the environment with innovative methods and low-impact products

  • builds community and others’ self-esteem through volunteerism (e.g. free and/or deeply discounted haircuts for individuals in need through partnerships with community service groups such as hospice and youth mentorship organizations - fill out the contact page to reach out to Josh about these services)
