My wife has cut my hair for at least 45 years now.
I'm not a runway model but no one has mistaken me for a Shetland pony.
That and I can't stand anyone touching my big ol' head.
And...........AND...........I do not want to end up looking like that guy in the photo.
I'll stay with the Shetland look.
Man bun anyone?...............o_O
 
Sorry, I'm no longer patronizing barber shops. For the last 30+ years since I ETS'd, I've been getting short haircuts. I'm doing the ponytail thing now a days. Now I can blend in with the rest of the dooshnozzles around here.

I hope so.....decent high n tight hard to find.
The established have passed on ....took their shaving creme machines and straight razors with em
That is my tell tale if I have found a barber.
Gotta knife that neck line...
What happened to worthy small talk as well ?
Screw beauty shop cut till even established.
I can shave my own head. Its the scissorhands then clip/knife.
No need to check mirror for leftovers..
bubblegum...I pay $55.00 to a retired gal to hit myself and my 11yr old son every 3 weeks.
Cash in hand..no taxes..
Cancer found our angel ....back to the clippers .

I found an Old Fashioned Barber Shop in Snohomish WA and have been going there for 40+ years. I have even driven up from the Kent Area to get my Hair Cut and NOT Styled for a good part of that time! We recently moved back into Snohomish County and that Shop was part of the Reason for the move!
 
Going to get a haircut is one of life’s simple joys for me. #3 on top, high and tight.
I don’t remember the last time I got a “haircut”. I don’t own a comb, I don’t use shampoo and I certainly don’t have any “bad hair” days.

Of course, I also don’t exactly have them beating down my door either.

Sigh.

A better way to broadcast that to the world would be, "hey there ladies I'm not bald, that's a solar panel for a looooove machine". :cool:

You know, slay em' K man

Been two Barber shops here in town since as long as I can remember (so more then 60 years) there was three when the last one opened but then one of the guys retired and it became a tattoo parlor. SO still two.

Place here in Salem over on Lancaster, does a mean cut, that little lady will blade your entire hairline to perfection and hand you a shot of whiskey while you enjoy the hot towel! Gotta have the modified Mohawk, peach fuzz up the side and back, #2 on top, and i want square and level! Lol
