    Default Barbers

    Why do barbers always take more hair off than needed? Literally asked for a small bit off the top and now look like Iíve been scalped.

    Am fucking sick of every shop that closes another fucking barbers opens. If it isn't a Turkish one it is some cunt who thinks he looks smooth cos he has brylcreme on and a trimmed beard. Cunts of the highest order.

    Haha, I counted abut 7 barbers within 5 minutes walk of me recently. Mental.

    Need to pay good money for a haircut though I find. If you pay £8, you only £8 worth of haircut.

    £20 for a good cut in a barbers in norwich

    Luckily I don't live in the city centre anymore and the local hairdressers charge me £9 for a pretty decent cut

    The last barber shop I went to was called 'Nice one Terry' Those old enough will recognise the TV series reference... I think it was about £8 a cut back then, but that was London prices. When the time between visits to the barber grew to several months, I bit the bullet and purchased a Wahl. Now my hair cuts cost me nothing, but there's not a lot to cut.

    Although not doing it for a living these days my cousin trained as a hairdresser so she cuts my hair and I help with odd jobs. Perfect cut every time. 7 barbers near me but would only use one of them if I was going for a job interview with the circus or planning a career in stand up comedy. (">

    I've been taking a Quattro Titanium to my head every other day for the last few years, love it.

    The boy is a tenner a month though.

    Quite a lot of “gentleman barbers” around here, tend to cost £25-30. There are plenty of Turkish barbers too but I like a nice cut, just wait a couple of months between!

    I normally just shave what's left with electric clippers but when I feel like treating myself I go to my barber for a cut-throat head shave and beard shave. Costs Ä13 total.

    He's great but the one slight issue is that he's a bit out the way, 10-15 minute drive. I went to asking at all the local ones (of which there are many) and not a single one of the cunts were able to provide a cut-throat shave. Fucking charlatans.

    As for Ashley's original point, I agree, I remember back when I had enough hair worth cutting that no matter what instructions I gave, they would end up doing their own thing.

    Oh and if you haven't experienced a cut-throat beard shave from a barber then you should treat yourself. It feels amazing.

    Thanks to cyprus

    I take my kids to one particular Gentlemans Barbers.

    Costs £9 to get em done but he has nice leather couches, Sky TV and as much nespresso as you like for free.
    Take your time mate.
