Basel, Haircut for dad and son.. where?

Hi,

Language not such a biggy as son and mum speak the local lingo.

Cost would be a big factor but.. not to the point I have a begger giving us a trim.

Any recommendations? Place and cost would be great.

Re: Basel, Haircut for dad and son.. where?

I have heard good things about Barry who has been here in Basel for quite some time... I believe he has some costs outlined on his website (link contained within link).

Also, apparently there is a Canadian hair dresser near Cafe Ono to whom a couple of people I've spoken have gone and been happy. If I remember right they said it was across the street / a couple doors away but I've not been out that area myself since hearing of it so can not give better directions than that. (Sorry!)

Meanwhile, try searching a bit, I'm relatively sure some of the guys have pointed other guys in the direction of barber in town as well. (The "man's man" type barber shop with manly uhrah truck and girlie magazines on the table instead of Cosmo and Oprah type magazines.)

Hi Peg A,

I did search the forum and visited Barry's lovely site. It states 70 ChF* for a Gentlemen's haircut. I'm neither a gentleman nor a banker.

*Time dependent, I'm sure that for just a cut it would be less

Perhaps I'll get a weed-whacker from the local hardware store.

Checking on your other lead, thanks.

Sorry CK, I hadn't meant to imply a "didn't ya search noob!" type attitude if it came across that way... more simply that to find the thread(s) I'm thinking of, it may take a bit more of an intensive search.

Alas, my Monday Morning Brain isn't providing me with any additional info to point you in the right direction.

Re: Basel, Haircut for dad and son.. where?

OCU, located here, has cuts for Fr.22, that is a wash and cut for short hair. I'm thinking its a splash of water with a 1 minute consultation (likely me pointing at a photo of David Tennant) and then a weed whacking.

Details:
O20 Hair Planet
Orinad Look AG
Kohlenberg 11
4051 Basel

Tel. 061 281 91 31

Re: Basel, Haircut for dad and son.. where?

I go to:

Coiffeur Krivo, Erdikli

Feldbergstrasse 87
4057 Basel

Its a pretty spartan chop shop but you'll get change out of a 20.
Languages spoken, German and Kurdish.

The Site you link to looks like a list of those salons who take youngsters still at school to come for a 'Schnupperlehre', a couple of days (perhaps a week, I'm not sure of the ruling) to get to know the trade from the inside when they are still deciding on a career.
When they have tried a couple of jobs and make their decision, they can apply to a Hairdresser's Salon to do their 3 year Lehre (apprenticeship).

Salons often have fully qualified Hairdressers, someone in their 3rd year of learning, someone in their 2nd, someone in their 1st. The jobs entrusted to them are gauged to the level of knowledge and practice they already have. I'm pretty sure the Schnupperlehrling wouldn't be cutting anything. The 'Schnupperling' lad at the salon I went to recently, was putting towels round people's shoulders.

Hope this puts your mind at rest.
