Going to the barbers/hairdressers
« on: August 04, 2018, 01:29:19 PM »
I don't know about you but I've never really been enthusiastic about uni-sex salons. As long as I am able I will stick with the good old fashioned barber for now, unfortunately {good old fashioned barbers} are as rare as hens teeth, and people have recommended salons to me saying "Go there they are good or go to this one they are brilliant" and I always reply I will when I have to. Also as I am still in possession of a full head of hair that still grows on a regular basis and I have it cut on a regular basis I don't need anything hiding or touching up so it's my regular barber.

These people that run salons must be laughing all the way to the bank after seeing the state of some peoples hair, I look at some of these so called "styles" and think, you've actually PAID someone to make you look like that, especially the young boys with their half shaven heads {with swirls in} and silly comb overs and the price they must be charged. the best ones are those who have just paid an arm and a leg to make it look like they've just got out of bed and they actually walk round thinking they look great when in fact they look like t*ts, only no one it seems has the nerve to tell them that.

Obviously celebs and footballers have a lot to do with how {young} people look nowadays, but unfortunately if celebs dress and have hair styles that make them look idiots then whoever "copies" them will look like idiots too.

What i find annoying about barbers nowdays is they give themselves a silly name because they think it looks trendy, and then want to charge you £7-£10 for around 10 minutes of hair cutting, i used to be an electrical service engineer repairing tvs and hi-fi equipment and i got nowhere near that amount of money i should have sold my soldering iron an bought a pair of scissors.
