Uomo: Italian for man
The italian word for ‘man’ is ‘uomo’.
We are a barbershop that focuses on the needs of men. In this world of growing anxiety towards masculinity… we are a place where men can unwind, enjoy a moment with other men, and be pampered like a man.
Sounds too masculine?
Well it is! Welcome to the barbershop.
Hot shaves in Victoria BC
For over sixteen years, we have been bringing the finest Italian straight razor shaving to Victoria BC.
Straight razor shaving is an art not often seen in barbershops today…but at Uomo Modern Barber, we offer hot towel service, facial massage, and a clean, close shave.
It is the perfect gift idea for a man who wants to relax. Gift certificates available.

We can handle all manners of beards. If you are looking to feel good in your freshly grown facial foliage, and it is feeling itchy and unkept, we can help you achieve that perfect look for your style and facial structure.
We will also be able to recommend which beard product is best for your beard. We have a large selection of beard products from Italy.
