Inexpensive Haircut for Men
My husband gets his hair cut frequently and is unwilling to go to my
stylist for a $50+ cut. However, the Supercuts-type places he's
rotated through have often given him very odd-looking haircuts. He
has pretty wavy hair so perhaps that's why. Do any of you guys (or
women) go to a more affordable salon that is a step above the
walk-in places that you can recommend? For what it's worth, he
hasn't had better luck with barbers. Buzzer cuts just don't work for
wife of weird hair guy
My husband and son go to Nina's
on Shattuck, in between the Cheeseboard
and the hardware store. She does a pretty good job. Phone number:
Go see Jenny at the Cutaway
on Piedmont Ave. (assuming she's still there).
We moved out of the area over a year ago, but she was my stylist for
nearly 10 years. I also have thick, wavy hair, and she did a fantastic
job, way better than anyone else has ever done, including some of the $50+
places. Prices are less than $20, and even though it seems like a walk-in
place, you can make appointments as well.
My husband goes to Heads
on solano-he sees Rosie. Haircuts are $15, and
she does a great job.
My husband likes to go to Cool Tops,
the kids hair place in Rockridge with
our daughter. They cut his hair and hers and you get a discount for both
of you. They have given him a good haircut twice and he has similar hair.
Cheap too! And killing two birds with one stone.
My husband has been getting his hair cut for 5 years by Rose who cuts at
the Edge Salon
in Berkeley (510)843-4919. She charges under $20 for a
haircut. He has never been disappointed by her work. Whenever I accompany
my husband to his appointments, there are at least two other men waiting
to get haircuts from Rose. My husband's hair is slightly wavy and medium
fine. The other clients I've seen waiting have all had varied hairstyles
and hair types. She seems really experienced with cutting hair from all
ethnic backgrounds. She's excellent at her craft.
Wife of picky husband
My whole family has been going to Gentle Haircuts
on University, just
below Shattuck, for many years. It only costs $12 for a haircut and the
haircuts are perfectly acceptable. I see Vera and my husband, who has
curly hair, sees Vera's mom, Nancy. I have never seen a bad haircut leave
I'm new to the area and am looking for a place to get a cheap,
simple, men's haircut. I am not looking for a salon that's going
to charge $50: something more along the lines of a barber shop
Try Grand Barber
in El Cerrito (10054 San Pablo, across from Pastime Hardware). I've
been going for over a year, and I like the old-time vibe and reasonable prices.
For a fine haircut try the ladies at Mayfair Salon
on Solano at
Tulare. They will meet your budget and provide a professional
cut. They serve a largely female, Asian customer base but they
are friendly and accommodating to all, even drop-in customers.
My husband went to
Berkeley Hair Salon,
1945 MLK Way (first block
north of Univ.) 540-5889. The salon is run by a south asian lady
who is very pleasant to talk. She did a good job on my husbands
hair which is very short.She charges only $12!!!
Inexpensive Haircut for a Man
My husband hates to spend money for a haircut and
it is often all too evident. Last weekend he came
home 1/10th of an inch away from baldness. He has
lately been going to a Supercutters, but this last
cut was unforgiveable. Can anyone recommend a good
but not too expensive men's haircutter? It could
even be at Supercutters if you can give the name of
a stylist who is reliable. Part of the problem is
that my husband can't really see what's going on once
his glasses are off. I have volunteered to go with him
next time, but I'd prefer that we can find someone who
is good enough that they don't need to be monitored.
Thanks for your help!
