    Alright guys, bit of a weird one, but I'm a student currently doing IB who's got an offer from St Andrews for English and Philosophy, great right? But I've got one question, being a black student, I have like NO idea where I'm going to get my hair cut if I go there. I had a peek at the demographic statistics of recent years and saw that only 0.7% of students (give or take) are black. So I'm a bit confused as to what to do seeing as there aren't that many blacks in the first place and thus, not likely to be a great demand for black haircuts in the area, if at all. I'm going up on the 30th for an open day but doing really wanna go around asking professors where I can get my hair cut, so figured I'd hop on here. I'm a UK student if you're wondering and seriously considering firming St A's so any help would be appreciated

    There are plenty of decent barbers in St Andrews. I have no idea about special considerations for black hair though. If they don't suit you, it would not be silly, in either time or cost, to take the bus to Dundee for a wider choice.

    I had a friend with a similar problem - he was Arab but he had similar hair. He said there were no decent places in St Andrews but he used to go to a place in Dundee. It is only a 30 min bus ride from St Andrews direct. Or you could get it cut when you go home, I assume you will go home during the holidays.
