Having a haircut......

.....a process of pleasure or a necessary evil?

When I was around 3 my old Mum took me to the barbers for the first time. I screamed the place down. Hasn't got much better since except for when I went to a local one here run by a very attractive large breasted lady, and then my screams were muffled

a turkish haircut is always a pleasure - head and shoulder massage - hot towels - etc

Until they take the towel away and then you realise you look like a turk

I'm follicly challenged, so weekly shearing is required, which quite frankly is a pain in the arse!

Another who's folically challenged so it's a monthly shave. When what very little hair I have grows back, it is a magnificent shade of arctic platinum.

Always been a bit of a chore for me to quite happy losing my hair.

I am 39 and still have a splendid head of hair so hair cuts are fairly big deal for me
Been going to the same place in Islington called Shades for pushing 15 years, probably every 2.5 months or so. Not a poncey salon, owned by two brothers. Both of them are 'proper lads' so always a good crack when i pop in. £25 these days, but usually pay £30
Went there yesterday in fact - needed it as my hair was getting a bit wild

£25! In a gent's barbers? Wow.

I've had my hair cut at the same place since I moved to Brixton in the early 90's.

Still just less than a tenner even today. Bloke who used to run it was a bit of a celebrity, long before I started going; had an old article in The Face on the wall, because it profiled him, in the 80's, as the best 'flat top' barber in London.

Dear me, flat tops! That's a trip down memory lane.

It isn't a gents barbers. It is a unisex gaff. One brother usually does the women and does all the colouring stuff, and the other brother does the blokes. Went there for the first time as I used to work nearby and have been back ever since

They are proper old skool North Londoners though (not poncey/ gay, like a lot of salon owners etc), think there other brother has a hairdressers gaff in Kentish Town

i shave the sides of my head every couple of days, by myself (though occasionally your mum helps at no extra cost).
fix dreads' regrowth every couple of months.

a bit of practice and it's not that much of work.

all this after years (about 10) without having a haircut.


and it's "bald bastards", you bunch of follicly challenged twats!

I've had the same ' hair style ' ever since I met Jen - my hair was similar to Russelll Brand's on a good day then so she suggested she cut it - she did a good enough job so she's been cutting my hair for 38 years now , might get it cut for Christmas .

Sigh. I wish I could go to the barbers. Alas being a slap head now prevents me.

I have always loved having my hair cut. It started years ago when I wanted my hair cut like Brian Ferry, and found that on his solo album his hairdresser was listed. His barber was at Smile at Knightsbridge, so I booked up and went. Had a wonderful time and a great haircut - it cost me £15 in late 70's, which was a fortune!

Since them I've had haircuts at Trevor Sorbie's place, Sassoon's, Tony and Guy, Geo F Trumpers and a host of other "named" hairdressers. I've even had one come from a famous hairdressers to my house to cut my hair there! This was back in the day and I'd think nothing of spending over a ton for a haircut. What was I thinking!!

Now it's a once a week shave at my local barbers and as I have very long hair, a trim up every 4 months or so. Haircut and shave nowadays is about £25, How the mighty have fallen :)

I run the clippers over my head to catch the few hairs I have left every few weeks.

Standard West Ham issue haircut, so once a week with the clippers. Haven't seen a barber for nearly 20 years.
