Mens hairdresser in Zurich/Zug

All the previous entries are quite old...so I've started a new thread.

I'm looking for an English speaking mens hairdresser in the Zurich/Zug area. What with it being so long since everywhere was open I'm a bit concerned with what I'll end up with...

Any recommendations much appreciated.

Depends on how much you are willing to pay

Terry at Mad hairstyling art, close to Stauffacher in Zurich is great. Best mens hairdresser for my husband after various attempts in 4 different countries. Is on a bit of more expensive side though.

Re: Mens hairdresser in Zurich/Zug

Why do you need English? Do you want to discuss football or rugby.

All you need is a few phrases.

“Just like this, but shorter”

“A little shorter here, please”

“Can you hide this bald spot”

“How much !!!!”

“Thank you very much, my banker will call you”

Well if it was one months hair growth it wouldn't be too bad, but nearly 4 months! Who knows what I'd end up with if they couldn't understand me properly!

Define expensive?!! I've paid 30CHF for a basic haircut before up to about 55CHF - not forgetting the extra 2CHF for a pea-sized amount of Gel...

Re: Mens hairdresser in Zurich/Zug

I pay 25 plus a small tip, but that is a walk-in no reservation place in a back street of Nyon Not certain if such a thing exists in Zug.

The most expensive cut I had was 60 at the Geneva Airport. I'm sure you can get more expensive just about everywhere.

A barbers haircut in Luzern costs 25-35 SFr walk in . In and around Zug at least 10 Francs more.

There is a barbershop opposite the McDonalds in Zug. CHF15 and I'm pretty sure they spoke English.

Re: Mens hairdresser in Zurich/Zug

there's a great place called barbershop 105 at waffenplatzstrasse near enge station in zurich (on the zug line!). it's like 45 chf i think. you have to hold strong when the guy suggests putting gel in your hair because he's very insistent and i actually left the place wishing i'd said yes. this feeling lasted two minutes.

Re: Mens hairdresser in Zurich/Zug

Theres a Turkish one across the street from Starbucks in Metalli Zug next to that german beer place, there is the obligatory Kurdish one just around the corner. The Turks and Kurdish barbers are a bit like Lidl and Aldi. I have been to both but currently my Affiliation is with the Kurdish one around the corner on Barrerstrasse. 20 Francs Walk in plus a tip Job done.speaks good English.

I would rather cut mine off with a rusty nail than pay 45 Francs.

Re: Mens hairdresser in Zurich/Zug

I’d recommend Cutting Edge in Zürich (Hottingen). Very professional, multilingual, pragmatic, stylish and super accommodating.
