    lot's of places have them for £5

    but i hate cheap haircuts with some random knob responsible for my hair. when they're on the phone whilst cutting my hair, having the most important conversation ever they have to stop cutting my hair for a while, or just tot aggressive when moving my head to cut my hair, i want to stab their eyes with the scissors, almost always there's a mistake somewhere as well.

    so i chose to go to some expensive french place instead, hair looked way better since.

    probably better to not cheap out on your hair

    When I was a student I used to go to Vidal Sassoon

    On the day that the trainees worked on volunteers - it used to be free

    I cut my own hair, I feel that hairdressers cut too much off anyway.

    I hardly ever get a hair cut, like once a year if that. I usually trim some bits myself but would never fully cut it myself.
    During freshers week here in Liverpool Andrew Collinge hairdressers were offering students a £10 hair cut for about a month, I never got round to going so hoping they do it again this year.

    The guy who cuts my hair doesn't speak or even understand a single word of English. He gives really bad haircuts and charges £5.

    Its very easy to get a decent haircut for 7 or 8 pounds.. Why pay more? There is now plenty of competition with a good spread of Turkish barbers and similar. My Barber is Iraqi,,a lovely chap and does a great job..

    much easier for men than women, I've struggled to find any hairdressers in my area who'll do my hair for less than £20 with the average price being between £25-30

    Dammit I hate how expensive it is to be a woman sometimes. :lol:

    Do you mean they do women's hair for the same price as men's or that they do women's hair at the same kind of prices I said?

    Aye the prices I mentioned would just be for the cut, to just get your hair coloured it'd be between £30-60 for the cheaper places depending on hair length but I've seen it go much higher than that! I just dye my hair myself
