Re: Just found an awesome new Barber shop in Zürich... old-skool but cool (and cheap)

i go here

Most of the cheapies all do the same style and if they have to do anything more then they are in deep water. And what they do does not need much learning. I could do it after 1 hours practice.

Re: Just found an awesome new Barber shop in Zürich... old-skool but cool (and cheap)

Well, I was there again today for a maintenance cut and no way can you get this level of service anywhere else in Zürich for this money. I seriously challenge anyone to tell me a Barbers shop where for between 25 to 35chf where not only do you get a fantastically detailed cut with a good understanding of past and modern trends, but where you also get explained to you the best styles for your hair, how and why it is being cut the way it is, and what you have to do to maintain and style it. It's basically a hair consultation for the price of what is in most other places in Zurich would be a bog-standard and uninspiring cut. Not to mention Sorin is just a nice guy, interesting and easy to chat to.

I really urge people who live locally or within easy reach of this gem of a barbers shop to try it out, and if you like it then support it and give it your repeat custom.

Their Facebook page is also up where you can see the barbers, styles and videos of the cuts etc https://www.facebook.com/prostigebarbershop/

As you can tell, I genuinely want it to stay open and do well.

well you know it should be kept secret! The usual story. The more popular they get the more the service deteriorates and the more the prices shoot upwards!

Sure guys, here you go. Make sure you laminate the photo after printing it or I guess it's not going to last long in your bedrooms.

It is exactly the same barber, and he and his business partner bought the shop to turn into their own business.

Interesting. They said that the prostige guys had gone out of business but forgot to mention that the barbers were the same now Thank you.

33 CHF for a men's haircut, btw. still a good price

Thanks for the update! I went to the "usual" place a couple of times and I was surprised not to see him...

Re: Just found an awesome new Barber shop in Zürich... old-skool but cool (and cheap)

With these cheaper hair salons in Zürich ( 32 CHF for men ) does one have to ask whether it will be cut by a qualified hairdresser ( i.e not an apprentice )?
