Default Where do you get your haircut?

Thought this would be a cool idea for us to share where and how we get our haircuts. Growing up, I had the same guy cut my hair at a local barber shop. Ever since I went off to college (I'm a senior now) no matter where I go, no one can replicate what he did/does.

Long story short, where do you guys go and how do they style it/what do you tell them?

Wahl hair trimmers I've had for over 20 years expertly used by myself. $20 and the cost of electricity has been my total expense for haircuts since highschool.

When I was a youngster I had my hair cut by hot college girls. My grandmother ran the cosmetology program at a community college.

When I was young an old dude who would give me a lollipop, he's still there but no one besides his age really goes in. Most people I know go to the high-end places that blast music; I just go to a local salon-type joint since I get the 1 cut and a shape-up. $12+tip every few months.

In my living room. I give my barber a special kind of tip for her work.

In the back yard by the wifey, it's a very "hands on" cut, and I don't even have to tip!!

Wahl trimmer here as well.
I've cut my own hair for over 20 years and it's more consistent than any barber ever was. I cut it every two weeks or so and it always looks the same.

I only cut my hair a couple times a year, I like my hair long. Whenever I do get it cut though, I go to my moms. She's done it ever since I can remember, never have gotten it cut by anyone else

I only get my hair cut every 4-6 years. Last time I got a hair cut, was right before our 5th wedding anniversary. We are about to celebrate our 9th.

My husband goes to that Sports Clip place.

Outlier here...

I go to a professional barber about every 3 to 4 weeks depending on summer vs. winter. I don't last more then 3 weeks in the summer. I don't like my hair to get too long.

$42 a pop which includes tip.

Call me a snob, I don't care, but in my line of work where I deal with "business professionals" on a daily basis (I have multiple meetings daily with CPA's, Bankers, Attorneys etc...) I can tell the guy that spends $100 on a suit just as easily as I can tell the guy that spends $10 on his haircut. It's not a good look.

There is nothing that makes me scratch my head more then the guy that walks into my office in the $1,000 suit and it looks like his 2 year old cut his hair.

The hair above or the hair below?

My wife cuts my hair, usually every two weeks. I don't like to look like a hippy.

Great Clips...

It's just hair. It'll grow back. I usually give myself a two week cushion before I have to look good for something just in case I need to grow out of the cut a little.

Some people there are good, some suck, but whatever, it's cheap

Yeah. I go to super cuts. I am cheap and if they screw up it will grow back.

Wow! A lot of people who cut their own hair. Props to you guys but I'd screw that up.. Especially in the back.

I've tried great clips and sometimes it's ok... And other times not so ok. I know it is cheap. I also just recently heard they are timed and it's their goal to get you out of the chair in 10-15 minutes tops (which is nice if you're in a hurry). But I think some stylists follow this more than others and that's why some of my cuts aren't good from there.

GQ barber shop in granite quarry , NC. The absolute best barber shop in the world. Of course my opinion might be skewed because I work there.

I go to SportsClips, it’s a bit more expensive, but I enjoy getting the steamed towel. Having the chair turned directly to ESPN instead of mindless haircut chatter is also a plus.

I've had the same lady cut my hair since my first hair cut. I'll be 22 in a week. Only costs $10 every time and I'm in and out in 5 minutes with the same exact haircut every time. If she ever stops cutting hair, I will just starting going to one of her daughters which both cut hair lol.
