That haircut won't be the same strawberry floating haircut 6 weeks down the line!

Imagine paying half a ton for some stuck up banana split to tell you what haircut you want.

I'm strawberry floating bald and pay nothing for my haircut, bar the razors. This is insane to me.

I once spent £40 (including tip!) at a London barbers to be fair. :slol:

I was, however, young and living at home having received my first semi-decent paycheck.

They are not stuck up at all, there's like 6 barbers all working at the same time usually and they all seem really chill and cool. What I mean is like 6 weeks down the line I go back for a haircut because my hair is getting long. Not my hair is long and looks scruffy/bad.

It's the best haircut you've ever had, lasts for months and still looks great, well worth £55, but you don't tip? Tut tut.

It was literally a one off almost a decade ago. Just spend £12 like anyone else.

'what's the harm in trying it?'

The price is the harm!

I can see why if you normally pay nothing. Tbh when I first paid £50 for a cut I was like I can't believe I am doing this! But now it just feels normal like with a anything you just get used to the idea.

If you paid less for a haircut, you could afford to live somewhere better and wouldn't have to listen to floorboards creaking and furniture being moved.

That looks strawberry floating awful! Comically bad! :lol: There's actually more terrible haircuts on that site than good ones!

Perhaps you wouldn't have to work quite so hard...

So they're a magic barbers that actually manage to slow hair growth.
And you get a consultation before hand?!

How the other half deluded half live.

Nah it wouldn't make a difference. My gym membership is about £70 so I guess these are my two luxuries for myself.

Now, to be fair, I also have a consultation with my barber.

It usually consists of little more than 'What can I do for you today?', but he does technically consult me.
