Frankie & Son Christchurch centrals newest hotspot barbershop is the place to be. With 2 boutique shops at either end of the CBD their following is fastly growing.

Frankie & Son Barbershop’s first proper outlet opened with four chairs at Riverside Lane in February this year. The boutique 40-room Muse art hotel, which houses their second shop, opened in may.

Drawing inspiration from Art Deco Interior Design of very glamorous, elegant, functional and modern; Frankie & Son created a Barber shop with a difference.

A family owned and operated business, husband and wife team, Stu Tafua and Tori Wiki have created 2 boutique barbershops which is now known for their full services and high end approach to barbering.

Named after their two eldest children, Frankie & Sonny, the salon's look is not your typical barber shop, featuring dried flowers, plants and an emerald and blush colour scheme.

It is definitely the new up and coming hotspot so be sure to book in online to secure an appointment.

Blackcurrant & Honey Spread and Blackcurrant and Honey Concentrate.

Our hero of honeys, Beechwood Honey Dew with all of it’s wonderful properties, is combined with the juice of Blackcurrants to create a taste sensation! There are 2 great options.....

Blackcurrant & Honey Spread ($15.00 for 375gm) – great for spreading on your toast, crumpets, drizzling over porridge, ice cream, waffles, pancakes, adding to your smoothies for a real taste hit, add boiling water for a delicious fruit drink or my personal favourite – the jar and a spoon!

Blackcurrant & Honey Concentrate ($10.00 for 250ml) – just add water, hot or cold to taste. This is perfect for refreshing drinks, a topping over your ice cream, in smoothies, desserts, over your breakfast cereal or freezing for ice blocks for the kids. Add hot water for a delicious fruit drink - yum!

These products have been tremendously popular at markets and we often sell out at these events.
