About us

The hair specialist for the modern man.

Since 1968, Herenkapsalon de Barbier has been a household name for ‘the hair specialist for the modern man’ in Veldhoven and the region. Nowadays the salon is run by the second generation of the family.

Because the barbers at de Barbier are passionate about the men’s profession, they are very driven and skilled in cutting the latest men’s hairstyles. We do NOT work with appointments. During our opening times you may always drop in and there is always a place for you.

Should you ever have to wait, there is always a cup of Nespresso coffee ready for you, with a tasty Tiny Tony’s Chocoloney. We also offer a small selection of chilled soft drinks and alcohol-free beer. Feel welcome to browse our extensive men’s reading, newspapers or one of the iPads. We also have free WiFi available for you.

U kunt bij ons ook het Barbier Voordeel krijgen met het in eigen huis ontwikkelde knip-abonnement en strippenkaart, wat u veel meer voordeel kan opleveren dan alleen maar een verzorgd kapsel.

We have been voted the Nicest Hair Salon in Veldhoven, the Province of North Brabant and the Netherlands several times. For example, in recent years we have been voted the Nicest Hair Salon in Veldhoven five times, the Nicest Hair Salon in North Brabant five times and the Nicest Hair Salon in the Netherlands three times.

About me

Hello! I am Wilfried Leemans. I was born in 1966, born and raised in Veldhoven – a real Veldhovener! In 2002 I took over Herenkapsalon de Barbier from my father, Jac Leemans. I followed my education at the Hairdressing School and gained my work experience at my father’s salon. He taught me the real craft of men’s hairdressing , what they would these days call ‘old school’. After my studies I worked in various men’s hairdressing salons and barber shops, to gain as much experience as possible in order to continue my father’s salon. We are now busy preparing the third generation to continue Herenkapsalon de Barbier, after me.
