Glasshouse Country and Maleny News is helping celebrate the incredible contribution our
local business owners make across the hinterland community every day.
During Small Business Month we are shining a light on some of those enterprises who, in their own words, write about the passion and dedication behind their ventures.
With an impressive 25 years of industry experience, Renee Harris owner of Barbers of Maleny, believes that as a successful small business owner hard work, dedication and passion have helped her achieve her goals. She also credits her success with her willingness to take on board new challenges which this year included her and her team being trained and certified as part of the Hairdressers with Hearts program, aimed at proactively tackling domestic violence and elder abuse in our communities. As a highly experienced barber/hairdresser, Renee and her team Rob and Megan, specialise in all mens’ grooming, ladies and kids style cuts from the original barbershop in Maleny that’s been established for over 15 years.
Renee said that one of the key aspects that make her business unique, is that all staff members take their time to really engage and listen to what their customers want. Every customer is made to feel appreciated, because without them Renee said Babers of Maleny wouldn’t be where it is now. This dedication to good old fashioned customer service saw all of the team awarded a Rotary Club Pride of Workmanship Award in 2021. Renee said over the last 15 years’, Barbers of Maleny have often thrown their support behind community events and local groups and fundraisers, and she is very proud to stand alongside and support the community that also supports her local small business.
