Re: Haircut Q for men...

A. every 6 to 8 weeks

B. $0 (I bought a set of clippers in 1974, and have cut my own hair ever since...original cost $18.95 + tax = $19.90 (62.2 cents/year or approximately 8.5 cents per haircut to date )

C. no tip...just something cold to drink when I'm finished.

D. doesn't apply here...I'm single and use mirrors to get the back of my noggin. :

Re: Haircut Q for men...

About every 6 to 7 weeks. If I wasn't working, I would probably get it done every 5 weeks because I like short hair! Pay $9 plus $3 tip. I go to the same place every time that is run by one Vietnamese lady and we always talk.

Re: Haircut Q for men...

Every 6 weeks, $14 plus tip. It hurts but the cheaper ones hurt even more. When I retire, I will go the cheap route. I will be wearing a golf cap anyway.

Every 4-8 weeks
$0
Like the others said, a drink.
DW won't try it, so I do it myself with a pair of barber's shears.

I do DPs, and add in a nice little neck and scalp massage. I know just how he likes it.

Re: Haircut Q for men...

a. Every 3 weeks

b. $7

c. $2

d. Occassionally, or do it myself.

I still work around military folks, and shorter hair is expected. Plus, I prefer it.

I go to a real barber with the stripey pole. Experiments with "Great Clips" and "Fantastic Sams" etc have produced ungood outcomes.

Re: Haircut Q for men...

A. Every two weeks
B. 0

I am surprised by how many pay $0. I thought I was one of the few. I pay $0 for my son's haircuts too. DW on the other hand, $80 every two months.

Re: Haircut Q for men...

With all these $0 haircuts, I wonder if the barber is going the way of the travel agent and the FP?

Re: Haircut Q for men...

1. 4 - 5 weeks
2. $12
3. $3 ($25 for Xmas)
4 No!

Same barber for about 30 years. Old fashioned, one-man shop complete with Playboy mags, help yourself beer in the fridge and guys hanging around.

When there's an afternoon Cubs game on TV, there might be four or five guys hanging around (before, during and after their haircuts) watching the game and drinking beer the barber keeps stocked since we're such great tippers.

I told her I was tipping $10 because I wouldn't be back for a very long time. At the time I thought I'd be tired of the experiment in a year or two. Heck, she's probably given up and ER'd too.
