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

Sorin the "Haarmetzger" has now left the previous barber shop and temporarily moved to Mootes and works on Fridays https://mootes.ch/kontakt/

Mootes GmbH
Konradstrasse 55
8005 Zürich
Telefon 044 430 00 88
mail@mootes.ch

You can also book him via his Facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/Der-Haarmet...44038/?__xts__

He'll apparently looking for his own place so I will keep this updated as and when there is news.

Just wanted to give a shout out to a new Barber shop I have discovered close to where I live just between Bahnhof Enge and Sihl City.

...

He tried to charge me 25chf but I happily gave him 40chf as to be honest 25chf is dirt cheap for the service he provided, it was several leages above your average Gidor-esque robotic haircut. In fact, in all the close to 10 years I have been here I have never been as satisfied with a haircut or as comfortable during the process of having it cut, and I say that as a very picky bugger.
Thanks for the tip. 25 CHF is a really low price especially considering that the men's haircuts start from 45 CHF according to the price list on their website. Was it a special opening discount or similar?

At the station "Felsenrainstrasse " is another barber , who is charging only 25 sfr per haircut, in Seebach you will find a few cheap ones.

Look at the photo I attached... "Haarscnitt ab 25chf".

The website only refers to another team and branch... it seems almost unrelated to the barbers in the OP. Maybe they are two different barbers with the same name and Google has attached the wrong website. *shrugs*

Thanks for the post. My husband always has a hard time finding a barber who delivers the service you speak of at a reasonable cost. And the fact that the barber speaks english is a definite bonus!

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

Now...about that website you people are talking about
Quick explanation so that you don't get confused...
The shop from the website is the shop from the same owner-investor like ours. Both shops belong to one person
It's just that the one from the website is in Winterthur and ours from Zurich doesn't have a website yet!

Many around Oerlikon, schwamendingen, affoltern offer men's haircut for 25.

yeah, but often that turns out to be some grumpy kid on a minimal wage job.

What the OP described sounds like a genuine barber, somebody who knows what he's doing and has the pride and takes the time to do it right.

Something that is rare these days even in far higher price categories.
