April Shop Feature: Noreast Barber

Rob Lutes

Noreast Barber is a full service barbershop in downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia, offering the traditional barbershop experience including hot towel shaves and classic haircuts.  

Noreast was founded in 2015 by Jesse Resk who wanted to bring his style of classic cutting back to his hometown on the East coast. Located in the historic argyle bar district, Noreast was inspired by his love of classic barbering and nostalgia for the local hardcore music scene.  

Jesse was soon after joined by local barber Stu Cochrane who brought his talent and ambitious yet laid back vibe to the shop. Not long after, Megan came aboard and quickly developed her penchant for making clients feel at home with her great sense of humour and sharp cuts.

Noreast is now growing the team with the addition of two apprentices and plans to continue that growth while remaining a hub for easy conversation and a fun, relaxed environment for its clients.
