I've learned that if you don't need complex procedures (the realm of girls) there's little point paying for more than the basic service*. You can go and pay $100 to go and get your hair done by a 'Junior Consultant' at Toni + Guys, but your short back and sides will still look like a $10 cut, plus you'll likely have to endure the hard-sell shtick re: buying products you do not want.Sergei82 wrote:I remember SGD 60+ haircut somewhere near Bugis at a barbershop where they do massage to your head and similar nonsense.
I'm ok with the head-massage thing. I've not had it here but it's common in Japan. It's not like I need it or pay extra for it, but it they do it fine it feels nice.
Talking about national idiosyncrasies, how about getting a shave in India where they start by rubbing a big chunk of ice across your lips!?
* Though for a while I did go to a place that was about 3* the basic cost of barbers, a proper posh 'hair salon' where the dizzy minx of a blonde girl who cut my hair sported a blouse that was unbuttoned to an encouraging degree, revealing her minimalist bra and ample cleavage. She used to lean over me and erm... adorn her Décolletage [aka tits] on and about my head. I had no problem with that kind of head massage either
