A pretty cheap haircut is usually going to end up looking pretty cheap. These types of barbers may know how to cut hair, but I find they just don't know how to cut it well. Also, I think you may want to find a barber shop, one that has mostly youngish barbers. Not one of those nondescript hair cutters you might find in a strip mall. One that caters to a young adult clientèle, where it's clear that they have a love for the profession. I feel like these types of places are more receptive to their clients, as opposed to some places that are afraid to get a bit adventurous with the hair clippers.

Or, if you're desperate, you could always buy a hair clippers and do it yourself...

where do you go to git your hurr did?

Not feeling it. The chucks ruin any hope of it working, especially.

im not sure what is considered expensive for haircuts these days, but i go to about faces in pikesville. i use a french guy named alain (go ahead and sig that). he does a great job with the little hair i have left. i know they have other locations, but that is where my guy works. costs like $40 bucks, plus tip if that is your thing (i do).

I tried all the different levels at Toni & Guy before just giving up and cutting my own hair with a little buzzing razor. Only difference is now sometimes people ask me where I got it cut.

Get my hair cut at some barbour school for free where you basically get to be practice for some random guy who has no clue how to cut hair, always comes out quite good, but they take like 2 hours to do it. I also get wet shaved there once in a while, which is a bit more scary. How perfect do you really need your hair to be?

He must be VERY talented to make sure all 12 of your hairs are the same length. wink.gif

You shouldn't have to pay much, though. I agree that a big part of it is assertiveness, but my local barber charges $22 and I get a near perfect cut every time since I started going there. I used to have the same problem as you, where they wouldn't shave the sides down enough. Switched barbers, was a little more forceful (always have to get them to make it tighter at the top/sides of my head) and I'm super satisfied. Plus I've found that people cutting hair almost enjoy you knowing what you want.
