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...
So, can you describe the one to avoid? Thanks.

Yeah, why do us woman have to pay sooo much more?
Because you waste too much time talking to the hairdresser about TV shows.

Go to a men's hairdresser, it takes about 25 minutes and you're out the door.

30 bucks here in Zurich. Don't see a reason why I should pay more as a guy.

If I ever lose my hair he's also an expert for toupets! If he colors my grey hair it's 70 bucks or so. He also serves women which probably collapse if he tells them how cheap he is.

Look out for those small salons that exist for 20 years or so to get the best price.

Re: can i get a cheap haircut?

I got a super-duper cheap deal on Groupon for just 14.90 CHF . And mind you I live in Geneva. Just try to look for these deals on Groupon/Deindeal.ch . You might get lucky.

Re: can i get a cheap haircut?

This thread reminds me of a friend of ours he as alot of money, but likes to save it, he went to a cheap hairdresser in Austria we were all going out in the evening when we met up he had a big bold patch on the side of his head: Eek: she was using a shaver and it slipped moral of the story you get what you pay for

Re: can i get a cheap haircut?

I went to France and got myself a haircut for 20 Euro (or 24 CHF)... but then it was a 2 hour trip. Fortunately that wasn't the only reason I went there

Re: can i get a cheap haircut?

Simple. Buy a set of clippers and a nice hat (or 2). Set your other half in front of the YouTube with the appropriate how-to videos up. Sit down in a chair, hope for the best, and the hat is for the worst; it all grows back in a few weeks anyways and it'll get better with time.
