I have three main rules when selecting a barbers shop:
- I don’t want to talk to the barber, outside of issuing initial instructions on what I want and thanking him at the end.
- I don’t allow a woman to cut my hair. If I walk into a place and there’s one woman there among even three men I’ll walk straight out again.
- I don’t want any cunt cutting my hair who wears a waistcoat or any kind of formal clothing like that.
You’d be surprised by how many barber shops where I’ve walked out their door when they’ve contravened one of these rules. I have whittled it down now to 2-3 shops I regularly use where i kind of rotate them depending on which one is most convenient for me on that particular day. One of the shops though I only go to it on a Monday because I know that there’s a fella there who will talk but his day off is a Monday.
