where can a man get a decent haircut here?

Postby rajagainstthemachine » Tue, 25 Mar 2014 9:28 pm

...I'm not talking QB house nor one of those top end places offering haircuts at ridiculous prices.
I've had a real problem trying to tell barbers how to style my hair, the Asian hairstyles don't suit me and its not like I haven't tried different places but its all been in vain.
I've tried places in little India, absolutely great for a shave but useless for haircuts.
I am growing my hair in protest.. Its been 5 months now since I've cut my hair.
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

You must look like a real hippie now ;)

I have tried some of those cheaper places around $20+ but realized quickly enough that the hair stylists seem to have no clue about cutting hair, nevermind European blonde hair.

In the end I gave up and went for the higher-end places. Costs more, but at least I got my hair cut properly. I went to Kelture by Aveda in Paragon in the end, cost me $45 each time.

I used a place in Orchard Towers for years. $18 and she always gave me a good Ang Moh haircut. She was on the third floor. As you come up the escalator, her place would be on the right, next door to a women's clothing shop. Turn right off the escalator and right again.

Have you looked at EC House? I've been there with my son several times to the Bedok Mall location and my husband has been there for haircuts as well. No complaints. Locations are all over Sg. However, it's set up similar to QB House. (Pay $10 through the machine, get a card, wait in a line/queue).

I haven't checked out ec house yet, but I'm afraid to offer 5 months of my long well grown hair to that place in exchange for a 10$ hair cut.
I'm planning to grow it long but I want it to be trimmed a little bit but the last time I mentioned the word trimmed a little bit the guy chopped off a lot.
:cry:
