Best to buy the haircut machine and ask your friend do it for you.

Re: can i get a cheap haircut?

My excellent hairdresser in Ch charge 48CHF for (ladies) wash, cut and blowdry. The hairdresser in the HyperU Pontarlier (France) is 30 E (so around 36 CHF).

So Neuchatel Ladies make an appointment with Marianna on your way to or back from Pontarlier shopping, she is very friendly.

IF you happen to be in Konstanz, DE, it will be much cheaper ( EUR5 ):

Men's haircuts
I went there as well, waited, waited... and waited... and walked out again as we had to finish our shopping. Your quote of "..a wait of an hour and a half" is 100% correct. And they were not overflowing with customers either Of course, I could have asked them why they were taking so long to get me sat down but I did not want to risk having an "accident" if you know what I mean...

There is another place along the Bodanstrasse which is quite affordable. Never tried them so I can't comment on their service or quality of haircuts.

Re: can i get a cheap haircut?

Thanks for the link - I must remember to check it out the next time the haircut is due. For me, I bring along a tablet or laptop with my Sunrise Data SIM - time flies when you watch a movie or surf ( on EF for example ) whilst the device is charged at the waiting area.

Tuesdays and Thursdays in the middle of the month appears to be best times especially if you come in early enough around 9.15am and the waiting time is then vastly reduced.

Re: can i get a cheap haircut?

If you have a home/friends/family in UK, Take an easyjet flight to London, get the hair cut for a tenner, have a shower in the rain, buy your tea/coffee/canned food/cloths etc for a few months and come back to CH refreshed and with a profit

Re: can i get a cheap haircut?

Hi Superbat,

In Luzern, you can get a CHF 20.00 men's haircut at:

Coiffure City
Bruchstrasse 7
041 240 11 11

and

Coiffure Yusuf
Bahnhofplatz 3
041 210 40 13

I have gone to both places and recommend them equally.

Cheers,

Hotspur

Re: can i get a cheap haircut?

FWIW I just left Saleh at Josefstrasse. Cost me 25CHF for a very simple cut. In Zurich, I thought that was fabulous value. Prior to this, I would actually cut my hair when I travel. :-)

Re: can i get a cheap haircut?

I reckon I need an award for the cheapest cut. I paid 3 and half chuffs. With tip!

Not a bad chop either. I just pointed to the picture of Brad Pitt and when they finished taking the piss...

I did have to drive 1700km, which is a bit out of my way.

Next time you happen to be in Poland...

Re: can i get a cheap haircut?

I used to live in Luzern before moving closer to Zürich last month. When I lived in Luzern, I went to easyhair to get my haircut. 29 Francs, and they do a pretty good job. Ask for Melanie - she does not speak much English, but I just brought along my dictionary and it usually worked out fine.

Kauffmannweg 29 is the address. They get pretty busy on Saturdays so you might want to book an appointment if you plan to get your hair cut on a Saturday.

Re: can i get a cheap haircut?

I found two good Turkish haircuts in Bern, both cost around CHF 23,-- and try not to flinch when they singe your hairy ears with a cigarette lighter!

to the right of Mr Pickwick's Pub, http://map.search.ch/bern/wallgasse?poi=verkehr

They are called Coiffure Cara.

20 bucks a mens haircut.

there are 3 hairdressers working there i believe. Been there quite a few times now. 2 of the three do a good job, one is terrible. I gave him 3 or 4 chances and gets it wrong every time so i always just ask for one of the other two. but the other two are good. and they also offer barbershop shaves...

40 CHF is a cheap haircut.
For women. For men it's expensive.
