Col Nayler himself started the business back in the 1950s, where it grew an iconic reputation in mens hairstyles. In the year 2000, it was bought by the current owners, Tony Lordi and Rick Chiarelli. Both Tony and Rick have been in the hair industry since completing high school.
With the original purchase of the Indooroopilly store, Tony and Rick updated the store's image to suit today's market and busy lifestye.
With the success of the No Appointment Necessary ethos in Indooroopilly, Tony and Rick embarked on setting up six other shops in Brisbane:
- 1. Myer Center - City
- 2. Queens Plaza - City
- 3. Newmarket
- 4. Indooroopilly
- 5. Chermside
- 6. New Farm
- 7. Carindale
Tony and Rick have kept the name Col Nayler out of vast respect for the original owner's contribution to the men's hair industry in Brisbane.
Col Nayler stands today as Queensland's leading barber shop incorporating noble traditions and modern appeal.
