    Could anyone recommend me one? For a guy who doesn't want to pay through the teeth, nor wants anything fancy done.

    I know the whole "but you're a student - they don't get haircuts" routine, but it's currently too much bother of a morning.

    thanks in advance.

    If it's money saving you're after, go to the Bishop Blackall branch of Exeter College on Pennsylvania Road. It's a training college but I've been there before and they're really very good.

    I always go to the barber shop opposite the Ship (it's called the "technological barber shop" or something similar) which has internet access and games consoles to play while you wait, and charges about £5 for a regular trim.

    Thanks for posting, that sounds pretty good.

    I'll remember that for next time, and I'll just add that I went to a place called A Cut Above and I wouldn't really recommend it - unless you like tidying up your own hair with scissors in the mirror back in your hall...

    I go to Jeff Goodwin just off Queen Street and get a haircut from a trainee for £10 (every monday) - a bit more expensive than the college but then you are more likely to get a good cut since the salon owner is supervising.

    if we are talking really good, then most of the suggestions so far are not in that benchmark. wicked wax is 'ok' but so are the rest. im suprised at the lack of good hair dressers. taunton, newton abbot and bristol have excellent stylists. plymouth has a few good too, but exeter? be careful. if you are male pay above £20, nearer £30

    Just read the comments above, all you guys should check this place out it is so different from anything i have ever tried, they even do a hangover cure with mentholated towels and steam it sorts ya head right out! They also stock american crew products which are hard to find in exeter. Danny does my hair every month now and its always a great experience! i really feel I should share this place with as many lads as possible as its literally in another leaugue to everything else i have ever tried. there are a few reviews on the net about them and a few pictures.

    Or, if you live near St Lukes, Headquarters Exeter at 37 Magdalen Road (literally down the road from College Road, then a right turn) does pretty good haircuts, too. £11-ish for gents, after 10% discount for students. Been there twice, been pleased so far.
