OK we have 158 members now, some of them must be in London, some of those must be girls.

Can any of you suggest someplace for me to get my hair cut? I don't want to go into a fancy salon chain cos I always walk out of those either with a fucking ugly haircut or with no discernible difference but that my hair feels soft for about fourteen minutes then suddenly looks like the contents of a chip pan fell on it.

I just want a trim, maybe a swoopy fringe thing, nothing harsh, and no bint with a superiority complex and a haircut done with a knife and fork shoving her cleavage in my face while she looks at herself in the mirror over my head for an hour and a half, does anyone have a favourite London hairdresser they can recommend?

I could recommend one in Peterborough - it's only 50 mins away by train !
Probably cheaper too !

£36 for cut
£80 for cut and highlights

well I know a girl in Brighton with a kickass new haircut, I could always make an appointment there for the afternoon of my birthday when I'll be in town anyway... that's if none of my girls come through.

No one in London. But i can tell you I've had the same bloke cut my hair for about 14 years & I've never been disappointed. Go for a male hairdresser. Straight or gay, you'll always get a better cut.

That doesn't help you, I know.

I cut my own hair, too Betsy. I just don't take photos of it. Of course, that could be because I don't have a camera yet.

I agree, though, go for a male hairdresser.

a woman walks into a doctor's office. she says, "doctor, i'm having some feelings of discomfort in my privates. i was wondering if you could take a look."

the doctor says, "sure, but first i'll have to numb your vagina. please lift up your dress."

he sticks his face between her legs and goes "num num num num num"

thank you.

Billy Connolly tells of when he visited his proctologist for the first time....

He was told to drop his pants and bend over.
The Proctologist picked up an 8ft pole with a big hook on the end.

Billy shouts "YOU'RE NOT COMING ANYWHERE NEAR ME WITH THAT THING !!!!"

"Relax Mr Connolly - I was just going to open the window."

Hmm...if you were in toronto, I'd suggest Alex Cuts...he's the most racist, sexist, ignorant guy...and doesn't really cut hair very well...but, it's an interesting exploration into his "world".... and a one time experience.

I know what it's like searching for the Right Hairdresser. Yes, it grows back, but still... it takes so long...

I felt lost...flailing from dresser to dresser. My hair is wierd. It's curly but very fine. Most hairdressers really don't know what to do with curly hair, let alone soft and thin curly hair. And straightening is not an option in the tropics.

But I persevered and finally found Justin. He does me up good--I have to make an appointment actually, the graying roots are down to my earlobes. The shop is a little pricey, but worth it for the peace of mind--I know my red highlights won't come out orange or anything.

I asked around, anyone I saw with hair like mine whose style I liked. Don't be shy. This is an important decision.

Take a picture of someone whose hair you like and show that to the hairdresser when you go.

Good luck, and keep trying. You'll find him. (I hate to say it, but my favorite hairdressers have always been men. I wouldn't automatically rule out a female, though.)

Ooops, sorry. Seems I interupted something.

You didn't interrupt KLP, the punchline was about four hours ago.

Besides, I know how my hair wants to look, I want it to look like it does now, but without the split ends. So I'm thinking they'll make it look the same but an inch or two shorter.

And Nicholson and Griffin was a recommendation from a friend.

I tried asking people but either none of this group's members are female and in London or those that are don't want me going to their hairdressers.

I used to live in London for seven years but decided to move up here for some reason...I recommend Nik at a salon in Putney...but I feel Betsy, you are more of a North London girl? Ting is, I can't remember what the salon was called...it was on Putney High Street and next to...I can't remember. Soz. He was aces though
betsymartian 12 years ago
aw thanks MsBickers, I'm not a London girl at all, fuckin hate the place, but I live in Whitechapel. I work in the City though, hence the Leadenhall selection. If I'm still in London next time my hair needs cut (please god no) I'll go looking up Putney High Street. :D

It's nothing exciting, it's exactly like it was before but now it's tidier. I liked my hair the way it was (is), I just needed it less scraggly.

Get it done in Brighton...

You can get a cut and colour for about £50 from this place I go to.

I have one mate who comes down from london to get it done specially, it's that much cheaper.
betsymartian 12 years ago
heh heh next time shhexy, unfortunately I went already, on Friday. I just needed a trim anyway, but next time I'm feeling adventurous, £50 sounds good to me :)
