Men's Haircut in Zurich or Zug

if there's a recent thread on it- I couldn't find it- would be grateful to be directed to it if so

if not- can anyone recommend a good place for a men's haircut in Zurich and/or Zug? and reasonably priced (good luck with that, right)

I asked in the place in Sihl City and it was 60 francs! that seems a lot to me for a men's cut!

also, please add if your recommended place requires an appointment

thanks for any advice

Re: Men's Haircut in Zurich or Zug

There is one on BACKERSTRASSE, very close to the Helvetiaplatz. I cant remember the actuall name of the place but ifyou enter Backerstrase from the Helvetiaplatz end, it is on the left hand side around 50 metres down. They charged me around 35 chf . . . which for Swizzerland . . . is not bad.
Oh . . and no appt was required.

Re: Men's Haircut in Zurich or Zug

If nobody gives you specific advice there are a couple of very long threads on inexpensive haircuts in CH: Can I get a cheap haircut and 47CHF for basic man haircut in Geneva.

I have not read them, so no idea how useful they will be.

Re: Men's Haircut in Zurich or Zug

39 CHF at the one in the station in Zug - no appointment needed, and it even seems to be open on Sundays (shock horror).

Not sure of the name (which shows how much attention I pay to where I get my hair cut...), it's on the right as you go out towards Metalli.

Re: Men's Haircut in Zurich or Zug

I have been using the one at Zug station for five years. I say 'the one' but I have rarely had my hair cut twice by the same woman (I was going to write person, but I have never seen a male haircutter there - ever).

I work nearby, so what I value is that I can phone for an appointment at short notice, like "can I come in 15 minutes?" and there is about a 50% chance of getting a 'yes'.

They are very fast - 15-20 minutes, the price hasn't moved in 5 years -39fr - and I also still gve the same 5fr tip

Re: Men's Haircut in Zurich or Zug

This is a topic very dear to me since I've been looking for 1 year before I've found one with good quality/price (32CHF) at Poststrasse,Zug.

Re: Men's Haircut in Zurich or Zug

There is one on Josefstrasse close to Zurich HB.
5 min walks may be from HB.
28 CHF without hair wash and 33 with hair wash.
No appointment. And some of the workers there understand english.

Value for money for sure. Never had a bad experience.

Here is thier website : http://www.memomen.ch/

There are 3 hairdressers in Sil City.
You probably checked the one on the ground floor.
There is also Gidor on the 1st floor. They ask about 40 CHF.

Hi,

Check this out...

Reasonable price (CHF 30) and good haircut, right in the center of Zurich (Bellevue).

Enjoy

Re: Men's Haircut in Zurich or Zug

Look for a Turkish barber, there are 2 in Bern and 1 in Solothurn. They charge about CHF 23 and take about 25 minutes.

Re: Men's Haircut in Zurich or Zug

The cheaperst one I have seen is on Josesfstrasse, (off of Langstarsse) next to National car rental. I have seen signs of 25CHF in the store but I have not gotten hair cut there yet.
