for context, i'm 18:
my mom used to bring me to supercuts, up until i was about 15 or 16. then i started going alone, but it was still shitty supercuts. i searched long and hard but i finally have a good situation: i found a girl at a local salon who's friendly, provides good chit-chat, gives me a good shampoo, and gives me a nice clean cut for $25 shipped.
i'd prefer a barber, though. i don't want to fuck up my current situation though and get a bad haircut.
