@Duncan:  I’m not sure if you have a store near you, but my fiancé really enjoys products from The Art of Shaving. They have a barber salon in the stores and, while it’s on the high end of services, every guy I’ve seen come out of there looks like he really enjoyed it.

@Duncan:  That sucks 🙁

My FI and I just had this talk the other day. Plenty of great barbers here in NYC. The Dominican barbers uptown charge $20 for a haircut, a shave (with straight blade) AND tip. He always leaves looking sexier than he walked in.

We are getting married in the south where he lived with me for two years and found a few OK barbers but mostly bad ones for at least $10 more per visit. It looks like he will have to get his haircut/shave the Tuesday before our Saturday wedding and clean it up himself on the day of. I feel your pain..

=/ sorry you didn’t like the haircut! I wish I could give you a suggestion, but I have no idea how to find a good barber since my FI gets his hair cut by yours truly (and doesn’t care how it looks as long as it’s free and he doesn’t need to leave the house).

Is there any way you can find someone whose hair you really really like and ask where he gets his hair cut? It might be a better jumping off point than yelp

@Duncan:  LOL well I guess that’s why you’re having a hard time! I wish you had more time to find someone… we’re date twins and if you’re anything like me, you’re feeling the time slipping away =)

@Duncan:  I have never even heard of anything like that. How short do you keep your hair?

@Duncan:   It’s Vancouver; everyone’s hair is either strange or from supercuts


You are so negative about Vancouver and the people who live here. Does that include you?

Have you tried the shop in the Marine Building?

@Duncan:  I’m sorry that you had a bad experience. It sucks when a stylist doesn’t listen. If it makes you feel better, your thread title is a giggle-worthy pun!

@Duncan:  Hahahaha, I feel your pain. Not that this helps, but my friends in California always give me the “find someone whose hair you like” advice, and it seriously just does not work for me, living in Mullet Capital (and curly bangs!!), USA. Everyone’s hair sucks here, too. I am still trying to find a salon that will not break my heart. I hope you can too!!!!!!!
