know any good hairdressers at a reasonable price?

By Remi2 - 22 January 2008 40

 Hi all,

My locks are getting a bit long for my liking.  Can anyone recommend a good  haircut without costing the earth?

I had a workmate the other day pay $$$$ (can’t remember but it was pricey) for a style haircut. She also got a “free” glass of wine.

I don’t want wine, I just want a simply style cut.

Thanks for any suggestions.

What’s Your opinion?

I could tell you my secret hairdresser, but I’d have to kill you. Beats the pants off waiting over an hour at JustCuts with a bunch of schmucks, and it’s just as cheap!

$38 & $40 for a simple mens style cut “reasonable”? Wow! I must be turning into a Scrooge!

omore on skid’s excellent advice, most good [ie expensive] salons have their apprentices practice on unsuspecting passers by one night a week [‘next’ used to be wed night] and you’ll get something interestign for free – and a glass of wine!

During term time, the Hairdressing Department at the CIT, Reid Campus is a good, inexpensive way to have a haircut/colour. Ph 62073246 – best day, Wednesday (not during school holidays)

Not half as interesting as posting that you wife does number twos all over you!

We all have our own little fetishes.

Pair of clippers stems from when they were manual – with two seperately operating blades kind of like a pair of scissors

If you want cheap haircuts, go find the local beauty classes and become one of their guinea pigs.

If you want good haircuts, talk to people who you like the hair of and start finding the suburban shopping centres\home salons they work out of.

there’s someone at the Uni of Canberra a few of my friends go to, I think the good cutter’s name is Lou or something like that, about $40.

On a side note, isn’t it interesting that I referred to them as a ‘pair of clippers’. How odd.

The current pair of Wahl clippers that cost me about $70 have provided a good couple of years of service now.

The wife cuts my hair. Number two all-over.

Only problem is that I have incredibly thick curly hair, so it tends to trash clippers pretty quickly.

I had one pair (Remington I think) that lasted half a haircut before they refused to go any further. They had ceramic blades that ‘never need sharpening’.

On second thought, that won’t work if you’re not a bloke. I think.

Just Cuts does something like $21 or $23.

Or you could do what I did – get married and get wifey to do the honours. Free, unless you account for the pairs of shoes, outfits, moisturisers, and other things I have no clue about like cotton balls and eyelash curlers.

Get some clippers and go razor 0 like me 🙂
At $50 for an expensive set it works out at less than $1 a week (if you cut your hair weekly). My clippers are now 5 years old so that’s 20c a week to cut my hair.

john brennan hair – numerous locations in canberra, hit the white pages

from memory it’s $38 for a style cut – i’ve never had a bad cut there.
