Men’s Haircuts

By iCanberran 29 November 2008 48

In the past month, I’ve seen an explosion of guys with crazy hair styles.

All sorts of strange short styles and crazy colours.

It got me thinking, where can you go in Canberra to get a decent trim without Fabio wanting to mouse and tint your locks for $200?

So straight male Rioters, where do you go to get your hair cut?

Who’s best?

Valley Hairdressers in Mawson. Is the best Mens haircut you can get. The only Mens Hairdresser I believe to be its equal is in Florence Italy so it will be cheaper to go to Valley Hairdressers in Mawson.

Cut-throat blade trimming = Hep infection roulette

Valley Hairdressers in Mawson. Traditional barber shop, cut-throat razor to trim sideburns and neck hair, $20 for blokes – paradise. And it has the most APALLING collection of pictures to illustrate styles you may wish to choose from – I’m sure every single one of them were taken in the (early) 1980’s and featured in magazines for men who are fond of men. Worth the $20 just for a laugh…

I go to Paul the Barber in Woden Tradies. Cheap efficient beard trms a speciality.

Paulie’s great. My hubby gets his hair cut there. Can definitely recommend him.

I shave my head myself.
The reason that I do that though…
Is because I am going bald.
I looked noticed I was going bald…
looked into advanced hair.
(Strand by Strand replacement therapy = a glued on wig – by the way)
Anyway… I was going bald. Couldn’t do anything about it.
“Rightio nature… Two can play at this game!” BZZZZZZZZZZ!

If you’re Southside try the place at Tuggers Homeworld in the arcade next to Sportsman’s warehouse, Under $20 and no Mice, tints or crazy colours.

I’ll second this place… Its the only place my ex would get his hair cut ! Excellent service and no appointments needed – just walk in and sit down.

Plus I’m a girl and I highly rate them. Probably the cheapest and best haircuts I ever got !

I think most of the knobby frosting/gelling/mousing is done by hetro blokes doing the metrosexual thing myself. Don’t worry, I loathe ’em too….

Do “metrosexuals” actually exist? Or do they consist of just a few closeted gays, and a few guys who will put up with any image if they think there’s the remotest chance it will get them laid. (at last)

Oh they exist, and they’re scary. Like the couple (man and woman that is) who were walking through the Canberra Centre last month wearing lime green and a bit of facial hair (woman too) and with heavily styled and moussed hair so that both of them had a tilted beehive.

@Simbo – Curtin is unique in that it has two barbers and a hair salon all next to each other. I’ve tried each and Fiori’s is the best.

ant 10:30 am 30 Nov 08

But do you put sunscreen on the head?

I loathe all the smelly gunk hairdressers put on your head, it’s got worse in recent years, it all smells like lollies and attracts bees.

This fashion for being bald is going to see a lot of blokes with skin cancer on their heads, I reckon.

As a clipper-er, the advantage to it is… we go bald anyway, this way you don’t waste time trying to cover it up anyway. It’s sorta a fact of life, as you get older, you get the big bald patch. Either you hide it or you embrace it…

I’m looking forward to embracing a comb-over: I think it looks very stylish. 🙂

And I’ll be driving an MX-5!!!!!

I’m a gay bloke but I pretty much go with the clippers myself for a number-1 job on the head and the beard (either wielded by me or, if I’m not willing to put up with an hour worth of double-checking my head for the patches I’ve missed, wielded by the barbers across the road in Curtin shops – mostly reasonably nice, although the Curtin ones do have a tendency recently to have their 14 year old daughter clipper my head, which I think is slightly taking the piss…

The old fella out the back of O’Connor shops is a bargain at $9. His clippers may be a bit rusty, and his hands may not be as steady as they used to be… but for $9 I can afford to let it grow out for a few days. It has that dingy old barbarshop feel, and he’s got nudie calendars dating back as far as the early 80s from what I can tell.

He opens at 7:45AM Tuesday-Friday and stays until business drops off.

Wahl BaldFader – best ever home clippers – about $80 at the Shaver Shop. Faultless performance for 3 years. Trims almost as close as the aforementioned Quattro. No other electric clipper gets it as short.

Righto Gobbo. Fair quaint yourself there boss

I got one @ Urban Hair in Yazza for $25 with a fully qualified girl

Now that’s a bargain! How long do you get to keep her for?

Bout 25/30mins. Gave me a scrub and a head rub too

Probably the best aspect was the magazines, in this full salon they had Top Gear and Wheels. Spot on Bevan

Gobbo 5:35 pm 29 Nov 08

@deye – ‘Yazza’ appears to be a quaint colloquialism for Yarralumla.

I learn something I wish I hadn’t everyday here. 🙂

I second Morgan, Ziggy’s is the best. I’ll probably get another cut there when I visit for christmas.

L’ Homme in Woden. Small barber shop outside the Woden Plaza across from CPS Credit union. Been going to him for 20 years (back when he had a full salon called L’ Homme et la Femme in the Woden Interchange).

Capitalist 5:16 pm 29 Nov 08

Heard a few mates at Uni talk about Axis, which I think is near the ANU and Martinos in the City. Looked at both of them and think their a bit fruity, guess it’s why no ones listed them yet. Anyway, people I know like them.
