    Mr Toppers is a cool barbars though! i'd love to go there if i was male....

    i get mine cut every 2 or 3 months at the toni and guy hair academy in london. its only £5 (t&g is normally £40 for a dry cut) and if they think it'll suit the cut, they throw in some colour as well. i know it takes 3hrs, but i dont work so it doesnt matter and as a girl, its nice to wait 2 or 3 months and get a totally new look once the old one has properly grown out

    I've been Money Tipped!
    I get myself and the kids done for around £15 every 8 weeks or so. Guy comes round the house to do it, saves traipsing up town in all weathers.

    Wonder where Alvin Hall goes to get his hair cut? Someone gave him a hard time when they saw him in economy class one time flying someplace. Nothing wrong in saving money, no matter who you are.

    What about Donald Trump, wonder where he gets his hair coiffeured? His wedding anniversary today too. Even though he's got billions he's still canny with his cash. Look where the wedding reception was held when he married Melania.

    BTW... not only on the telly, but The Tube too, the radio and in print. What next.

    I'd worry when the barber charges £1 for a haircut and £5 for the search fee! :rolleyes:

    As all I ever have is a short #1 all over, bought a set of clippers in 1991 for £15, and my wife cuts my hair for me. Assuming a haircut every 6 weeks and special occasions means 10 haircuts per year, 15 years at £6 per haircut works out the best part of £1000 saved ! Not to mention money saved on car parking and so on.

    My cousin cuts her two boys hair, and trims the dog with the same clippers she uses for the horses. I don't think I'll go to that extreme.
  • Martin says "For me as I have my hair cut roughly every two weeks (the roughly applies to how often, not to my hair cuts!), ..."

    Debatable? :confused:;)
