      I like the old fashion barber shop. Old school Italian guys doing it right. Never stepped foot in a "salon" or chain. $12 and always a perfect cut. My guy.

      Used to go to an Israeli/Italian place. Now my guy is a Russian dude that's funny as hell. My girlfriends roommate is a hairstylist for some famous salon in Brooklyn and she keeps trying to get me to have her cut my hair.

      Just...No. I too enjoy an immigrant cutting my hair. None of this fancy trendy BS.

      I got the worst f***ing haircut of my life when I went to my "trusted local old school barbershop."

      Been one-guarding it twice a month ever since.

      When I was a younger, though, I had this AWESOME Italian or something dude named Antonio cut my hair for years. He ran the joint with his daughters, the salon had mirror walls and chrome everywhere, and he had a coke nail and wore pilot outfits and/or fishnet shirts. It was hilarious.

      I got to a salon. The chick washes my hair, shows me her tits, and sometimes jerks me off and even more. (substitutes blowjobs if she's riding the cotton pony) I don't pay anything. No complaints here.

      Tried the local barber shop. Guy charged me $20 for a BS cut. Now I go to this girl I know at Fantastic Sam's. $10 for a wash, cut, and beard trim. She's great!

      I just go to Procuts. The manager there is in a wheelchair, but she does a good haircut that is very fast too.

      Best haircut I got was in a Pakistan helicopter hanger from a tiny Pakistani dressed like the artist formerly known as Prince with an Elvis-like hairdo.

      My wife cuts my hair for free. Wahl clippers and no guard. I'd do it myself but she does a nice job on the neck line and around the ears.

      Haven't had a hair cut in 10 years. I donate the tail every 2 years or so. Miss my hot stylist, though.

      i have had my hair burned off by iraqis which was kinda cool and did a pretty good job for a deployment hair cut, but i would rather go to my regular korean woman

      There's something to be said for a young twenty something and a nice pair of tits in your face. I base my tip on how rough they are positioning my head, washing my hair and how many times their breast rub against me.

      Tips are adjsuted for pictures of their BF in their work station

      I am about ready, my hair falls to below my shoulder blades.
      But I might just get a trim and hold out another year. My wife found a place that serves free beer while they cut your hair.

      I have longer hair so unless I want to go short or look like a goonturd post-haircut I go to decent places, I miss the place I went to in college though. Hot girls all over the place.

      My guy is a middle aged Lebanese man. He has a really thick accent I have a hard time understanding sometimes but I'd rather drive the 30 minutes and have him do it than walk across the street and get some high school drop out cosmetologist to do it.

      Quite literally this. Every two weeks with a number 2 attachment. Every other time I'll have my wife get my neck. I do my ears with scissors.

      Never been to a Barber Shop. Kind of. My mom was a hairdresser my whole life, but only worked at a shop until I was maybe 3. I don't remember ever sitting in her chair, but I'm sure I did.

      However, here in Portland we have a small local chain called Bishop's. It's basically a tattoo parlor for hair, very adult oriented. Some even have pics of suicide girls and playboy pages up. Plus you get a free Miller with every cut. My wife got her hair cut there and they gave me a beer too. If I ever go to a Barber it will be them.

      The place I go to is like a classic barber shop; no appointments, just go in, sit down, wait, and get a haircut. For $40 (including tip), I get a haircut, hot shave, and usually a pint or two (depending on the wait time). Super Clips and Great Clips charge the same $16 this place does for a haircut but crappy work and no hot shave.

      Another place nearby opened up as a "Gentleman's Salon"; nicer decor, staff has a classier uniform I guess, but they do the hot shave and beer as well. Prices are roughly the same, I might have to try them out.

      No, but I'm told I have a radio voice, and face to match.

      I grew my hair long for convertible use. I have very Bozo-like hair that sticks out unless I pull it back and bind it. For long convertible trips my wife braids it or I get whipped to death with it.

      Sounds like the exact reason to not have long hair...

      Not gonna lie, unless you're in a band, guys with long hair =





      I'm a woman. I pay $35.00 for a hair cut, plus color on top of that. I only go to salons. My hair is fine/thin but curly so it gets damaged easily and I have to be careful.
