Some :millennial: ass barber shops charging $45 for a haircut (it includes a “hot towel and hair wash”) but bruh I don’t need any of that. Just cut my hair I’ll go shower at home.
That’s sf pricing ! Since ours were closed for 6+ months my woman has been cutting my hair. She does a :notbad: job at it
I might just go for a 2 all around and just stop caring. Right now I go 2 all around but leave some at the split lines on top to style in a parted way.

Cheapest haircuts are the ones you can just cut as much and spend as much time in between cuts for.

JESUS CHRIST!! That is absurd, you're getting a haircut, not going to a hair salon to get curls
AFAIK that’s most :millennial: barbers anywhere now. Other than the OG places Griff mentioned or the beauty school rejects that work at Great Clips or whatever. Might just throw $15 to great clips lady and have her fuck me up
I've only been to one or two barber shops in my entire life here in nova, and that is a Turkish hair salon. Always go to my guy and boom, I get a sharp hair cut for $20 and done. I've also been to :mahtroy: shop a couple times (its actually pretty decent and in a nice area), they also do a pretty good job for $15 too.

My girl charges me $25 - been going to her for probably close to 10 years now. I text her when I need a cut and she fits me in. I'm pretty easy, though - quick cut and a wash, and I'm right as rain.

Been great to see her grow over the years - she had just started at a local Hair Cuttery when I first started going to her, she's worked in a couple other salons between then and now, and now runs her own place.

I've gone from paying $12 to $30 for a haircut in the span of 15 years. It's bananas.

In college I went to this old-timey barber shop where every one of the barbers was 60+. No appointments, just walk in, grab a number, sit your ass down and wait for a chair to open up. But the guy who owned the place had his appendix burst and died several years ago, and none of the other barbers kept it going. So I looked around at several different places and most everyone sucks at cutting my hair (I'm picky), until I found this hipster place in my old neighborhood. They were charging $25 until COVID hit, but with the reduced business they upped their price to $30 to try to make it up since they had to start taking 30 minute appointments rather than just taking walk-ins.

Inflation isn't real, though.

Wife cut my hair in June and did a fantastic job. I usually only get a haircut once a year (hippie lyfe), so I'll probably just continue letting the wife do it. She enjoys it, and free.99 works for me.

That being said, the dollar has began to lose value against the Euro currency along with British pounds, not that it's relevant for the barber shops in particular.

I need my hair to thin a little more so clean shaving is faster/easier than it is now. I keep seeing adds for this Skullshaver electric razor thing that’s designed to contour to you head, but it’s like $200 :notsure: Using some $30 Wahl clippers from Costco for the last few years and I just buzz it all off with no guard every other week or so. I’d like something that gets it a little closer and is a little easier, so that skullshaver is tempting, but I can’t justify the price.

Yeah, fuck those places. You just need to find an old school barber, they're around. $15-20 is my budget for a haircut, period.
I found a few but the sucky part about an old school barber is that you have to ease your way into being a “regular”.

Oh, did I mention the $45 cuts are pre-tip? And in this economy I feel more compelled to give a decently above average tip because I know it’s not easy.

I’d rather have a $10 haircut and give the barber a $20-30 tip than to pay $30 for a haircut and also have to tip less because the service itself is already insanely costly
What do you mean, exactly? Just go, they will take your money.

At my old house in the Nrth Charlotte 'burbs, I found this place that was straight out of the 60s and I was the only white person I ever saw in there, but they gave epic haircuts at like $11. I would just pay $15-20 OTD each time and it was admittedly slightly uncomfortable at first as it definitely had a certain vibe, but I just kept going and overtime they all knew me. I'd still go today but it is 40 minutes away.

I buzzed my own with Walmart clippers for years, but the wife likes a bit more :fancy: so I :troywax: now, current place I found is $20 + tip which is still a little high but the guy is cool and plays tuba in some New Orleans style bands, so whatever.

For sure, but to get the best cut and best barber it’s always the ones that become regulars that get it. I’m no stranger to that. I’ll try to find a dece place :doe:

Most of the old places that are inexpensive and have been around forever seem to be pretty good across all their barbers, but mine is also probably easy/ :aintcare: considering I'm a bald dude.

I made a trip up to Grand Bend to try and understand why all of my security features were disabled on the check out day of my sketchy construction crew's stay. It turns out that there was a storm which caused a power surge to trip every GFI in the house. The house otherwise looked great except for the 40+ butts I picked up off the front lawn. :disgust: , so I transferred back the damage deposit.

Nest lock came back to life once I reset the GFI that the secondary router was hooked up to, but the Arlo camera system was :roasted: on the software end. Thankfully all the hardware worked, but i needed to do a hard reset and open a new account and register the base and all the cameras again.

During the visit, I filled soap and TP for all the bathrooms, and did some last minute spot touches that my cleaning gal missed, like a drip on the floor from garbage/dirty water she carried into the garage.

So if construction dudes visit wasn't weird enough, I got a booking request for Christmas to New Years Eve for a six person rental. Turns out these peeps are Fathers of parishes around south west Ontario, well at least two of them are. I upped the cleaning fee since I know these guys will be soiling the sheets :lolol: and it turns out they are good with the rates. Since they are booking from the 24th, I really want to ask the question, who is running the XMas Mass?

This has been the weirdest year man, the new normal is no normality whatsoever.

We've talked haircut prices here before. I've been going to my friend's :haus: for over 35 years and she charges me $7 and won't take a tip. Since finding singles is a PITA these days I just give her a $10. No wash :doe: , just a cut every 6 weeks.

Ironically my barber is a 72 year old grandmother. I barely go anywhere or see anyone so she'll be the one giving me the RONA. All my actual grandmothers are dead and I won't be visiting any family this holiday season, unlike Infamous Grim Reaper and her compliant husband.

If there's one thing I'd thank to corona, it is finding out that I actually look good in a mullet-ish. Last time I got a hair cut was last May.
