Obvioulsly new to the area (and the city as such) or I wouldnt be asking this - can you recommend any good places to get a men's cut?
Now, it does get more complicated - i cant stand my hair being cut with a machine (those trimmers) so id like to have it cut by someone who can operate scissors and actually do what I want him/her to do. Obviously, Tony & Guy would be a choice, but I'm willing to have an open mind so I'd like some recommendations. I am one of those people who know exactly what they want (thats because if i dont get that, i really look like an idiot because i have weird hair and even stranger head shape) and dont like walking out of a place without getting exactly that so i need hair stylists that can deliver. Properly.
What places would you recommend and what are the prices? Can "barbers" do that or do they only do the simple "sit-machinetrim-walk out" thing?
I saw this site yesterday. It's for a barbers in Wimbledon - a little out of the way I know (although only a short train ride from Waterloo), but this is the only barbers I know of where you get to sit on a Chesterfield, drink beer, watch plasma screens and surf the net while you have your barnet done...
I'd recommend George on Bermondsey Street to you except I have no idea if he can meet your exacting standards! He's cheap and efficient, an old-style barber. I just go in and tell him to cut it, and he cuts it. £10.00.
I would strongly recommend Kardos on Tower Bridge Road, next to the Lebanese Fruit and Veg shop. Ask for Nero and he cuts hair perfectly for 8 pounds! I must admit that I am slightly biased because Nero is Dutch, like myself, but then again I would never have my hair cut by a Dutchman if he didn't do it well.
I've been using Kardos for three years and I hate barbers: "Arsenal/Millwall/Chelsea were lucky the other night..." etc etc.
At kardos they can talk football, but would rather jaw politics (They're mainly kurds). All the time I've been going it has been £8. I asked wasn't it about time they put the prices up. They said no, because it would drive away trade. Fantastic.
As I said, it's a great little part of Tower Bridge Road. The Lebanese deli is fantastic, talk about open all hours.
Sometimes on a Saturday they sell what look like home made delicacies. Never mind Borough Market, check out their olives... KEEP IT LOCAL.
Kardos is aweful! I went there once and the guys burnt my scalp with the trimmer. Worst hair cut of my life. George isn't too bad, but is an old style barber. 'SE1' on Bermondsey Street is a good place too, but you will pay for the service.
