Indian barbers

I know this is weird but here goes.

I'm looking for an Indian barber even a Chinese one is ok. Basically an immigrant barber is cool.

I used to lived in France and in Canada. The only option for cheap haircuts in France was with North Africans, the experience wasn't always great. In Canada, well, there was everything, chinatowns, little indias blah blah blah, cheap haircuts galore, a cut in Canada with an immigrant barber/hairdresser was only C$ 9........Singapore has S$5 haircuts too, fast clean and simple.
Locals charge too much even if we're in switzerland. 30-50 SFr is robbery.

Please help, I'm not fussy with the style or whatnot. I just want a normal male cheap quick haircut.

Re: Indian barbers

Welcome to the forum.

Please, use the search function, there are plenty of threads with suggestions for cheapish barbers, plenty of them around the Langstrasse area eg.

Re: Indian barbers

On holiday I had a Turkish haircut, a really excellent job. Towards the end he lit a wax taper, the sort the church uses to light several candles, and surprisingly he quickly singed the hair in my ears.

I have now found a Turkish barber in Bern, another low cost excellent haircut, only CHF 24. As I sat down I looked around for wax tapers, and was relieved none were on show. However towards the end he pulled a gas lighter from his pocket, and without asking singed my ears! You have been warned!

Barber is here: http://map.search.ch/bern/speichergasse-19?poi=verkehr
